    We got word today that Mr W (2y6mos) will start Pre-K in 3 weeks at his Montessori School. The school director suggested it to us. ( We were going to advocate it for him, but wanted him to be fully potty trained. ) He has a blast with the much older kids when he is waiting for us to pick him up most evenings.

    A few little brags here, one not quite a gifted brag, but still cool.
    1. We got her (DD14's) schedule yesterday, we went to her locker afterwards, and looked at some of her classes. When we were leaving, she had to go to band practice, but wanted to compare schedules with her friends, so kept it, and then a few seconds later, she said "but I have it memorized anyway, so I guess you can have it." I said something about "you might know the classes and the teachers, but do you know the room number?" She proceeded to repeat back her schedule in order, complete with class, teacher, *and* room number. (okay, she missed one room number, but I still think that was *kind* of brag worthy) She then went on to tell me how much she like her locker combo because of some math thing that was over my head.
    2. She proceeded on to band practice. The brag here is that she is started band with 3 years less experience than the other kids, and had to learn how to play the saxophone over the summer. She's had band camp for 8 hours a day all this week in the Texas heat, and I think she's having a lot of fun, and appreciating having something to do. Last night, the band marched in a parade and played some fun songs for us.

    Granddaughter(9) just got the results of her state reading & math assessments. My sweetie scored a perfect score on the math portion, and in the upper portion of the reading. My daughter was shocked, I was not! smile

    OK, don't know if this is a brag or not but it sure was funny. I always read or have dd5 read a bedtime story at night. The other night she wanted me to read the dicionary. I said "are you sure?" and she said "yes I need to know the meaning to all words."

    Skylersmommy: That's funny because today my son made a "party" for his stuffed animals and one activity center was for dictionary reading....He set up two chairs facing each other with a stuffed in each chair and they each had an open dictionary on their lap! Nan

    It's not a brag, but it's a funny.  Wyatt was Skypping with Grandma and my little nephew.  When they were done talking I heard my mom calling my sister saying, "how do you turn this off?". Wyatt closed the Skyppe and shut down the computer using the start button and the log off like your supposed to.  Of course I had to call mom and tell her.  The next game show they're going to make is, "Are You Smarter Than a Two Year Old?"

    PMc--that's so nice. I remember when DD was five and had a kindergarten ceremony in which students were called up one at a time and given something to commemorate the occasion. Afterwards her teacher made a point of coming up to me and telling me that she was the only student who thought to stop and say "thank you". Made my whole week smile

    That's so funny!

    DS20mo doesn't know how to shut down computers because we don't ever shut down ours.

    When DS is done skypping, he closes the laptop.

    DS20mo loves puzzles, but I usually have to "work" with him on brand new ones.

    DH bought a brand new 24-piece puzzle yestday. Without any help, DS finished the puzzle all by himself. That took me by surprise.

    It always surprises me how much little ones can do!

    Too cute! Too bad we don't live closer the kids could have a dictionary party,lol

    To add to this, she's been reading it every night this week, the other day she said "whoever wrote this book is really smart!"
