    this was 100% a coincidence, I'm sure, but my crazy math-head son, 3yo, was at McDonalds with his dad and brother...and he was playing with a little girl that he just met (she was maybe 6 or something?) Anyway, she came over to my husband and said 'your son is really smart', and DH said, "what did he do?" and she said, 'he guessed my lucky number!' (it was 16). he was just like, 'oh??'. telepathy is totally a giftedness trait, right? wink

    DD4 looked me in the eye yesterday and said in her sweetest voice," mom, you are so beautiful. But before I turn 5, you might have to trim your eyebrows. They are bushier than a squirrel's tail."

    Reminds me of when my then-tiny DD announced loudly to EVERYONE in the quilt store "It's my mom's birthday today!! DO YOU KNOW HOW OLD SHE IS??" And then, with obvious astonishment and wide eyes-- she TOLD them.

    blush Of course, it was a lot funnier because I was by far the youngest woman IN the quilt shop, at just 35.

    today is our first official day of homeschool! DD5 is literally sitting on the toilet working on fractions right now.

    Me: uh, dude - you know you can take a break to go to the bathroom...
    DD5: mummy, you KNOW there was so much wasted time at my old school. let's not repeat that mistake here.

    for the record, i am instituting a new rule about not doing school work in the bathroom. ha - i KNEW this would be a learning experience!

    A peek into who DS22mo is while we were at a local burger joint yesterday:

    Eating his burger with a fork, building a garbage truck out of Mega Blocks, dancing with a wiggly bum to Mariah Carey on the radio, and pointing out the jug of bleach under the employees' sink behind the counter...all at once...that's DS in a nutshell!
