    Fun! You should post a few retroactive anecdotes--they're just as welcome! smile

    DS is still effectively unilingual, but he did wax on about the word "poubelle" recently. Enough said! wink

    Your Pride & Prejudice obssessed DD6 not only loves the Bollywood Bride and Prejudice, but gets the line "You should see him eat, it's like a Jackson Pollock painting."

    One of the first things out of DS2.10's mouth today: "Mama, can we please build an electromagnet for my crane today?"

    DD11 and I have a long discussion about Orwellian versus Huxleyan dystopias (and which are more interesting / realistic). I worry she'll be upset that she's 3 years too young to get into the Dystopian fiction class at school (absolutely no age exceptions!), but she doesn't mind because she's already read the entire book list.

    MegMeg, I love it! DD is reading a graphic novel of Emma and last night could not settle down until I got down my complete works of Austen so she could review all the titles and flip through it.

    Ok my own contribution--

    You know you're parenting a gifted child when your three year old says, "DD7's crying!" And so you check on her (she's just sitting at the table nearby) and she says, "Oh, I was just thinking about a part Jane Eyre and imagining it, and I cried." I had to ask; I was curious because it's been a while since she was into Jane: she was thinking of Jane lost and alone, nearly dying in the rain, and brokenhearted over Rochester.

    when your 5 year old states that his favourite book is Macbeth, but that while he enjoys the sonnets, he believes there are better poets out there. Like Dr Seuss.
