    When you ask "How are the new ski boots fitting?" and DD responds "I think my feet are feeling claustrophobic".

    When you make chicken for dinner and DS3 quotes from William Steig (Shrek)--"Pheasant, peasant? What a pleasant present!"

    You overhear DD4 explaining Symmetry to DS2 who is eagerly following and pointing out examples of asymmetry /symmetry to her.

    When your son talks you into peeling off his gross, soggy, mucky winter boots from equally mucky snow pants, and you agree - in return for a Super Hug.

    Minutes later:

    Me: "That was no Super Hug! It was barely a hug at all."

    Him: "Well Mommy, you can hardly expect sincerity when it was extracted as payment."

    When your child, who has been reading Exidus, asks why women were considered unclean after childbirth in the mosaic law... Then u derstands and doesn't get grossed out as you explain what lochia is.

    You find yourself holding back sharing your child's early milestones on a local gifted support website's commiseration thread because your child's milestones precede most of the other children's milestones by a large margin.

    I love this forum, dare I say because it feels nice for my child to be "normal" in a group. Being a singularity is exhausting.
