    That's hilarious. I love the processed fowl. We stopped being able to spell things at 3, short words at 2. I remember having to hint at things using "intelligent speak" as well. We would try the most challenging words we knew....and he knew something was up. Now he is 4 and none of that works. he even knows his letters in sign language and spanish so all hope is lost.

    Too funny! You could be describing my kids to a "T", including the Spanish and Sign Language. DD (4.5 years) is already planning on learning Chinese next.

    So maybe we've discovered a way to encourage GT kids to learn foreign languages...
