Don't sell yourself or your intelligence short, just because you've worked hard to get where you are. I believe it to be a bit of a stereotype that only moderately gifted people wind up at the head of the class, in medical school, etc. while the highly gifted people are all tortured people who don't do well. Intelligence has a large genetic component, and highly gifted people can be highly successful with the right mindset. I agree completely that resting on one's laurels is a real risk for a highly gifted little one, though. It sounds like you're sending the right messages to your daughter.
