    Your two year old pushes his grandma to the point that she gives him a small swat on the bottom. He turns to her and says cooly "Hitting is never ok. You need to find a different way to solve your problems."

    When you are explaining to your 6 and 8 year olds that it isn't really right for parents to tell their children not to do something that is bad for them (smoking was what we were talking about), when the parents themselves do. Both shake their heads in agreement and the 6 year old pipes up to say, that is very "hypocritical". Yes, dear daughter, it indeed is....and I had no idea you even knew that word, let alone it's meaning....lol!

    9th grader asked a few weeks into the school year what they think of high school. "Not so good... they are STILL just teaching us things other people have already figured out instead of letting us discover new things!"

    Same child several years later, a few weeks into a very intense and academically challenging college experience: "Well, I figure this is the only way I will ever reach my goal of becoming a polymath."

    When your DS, at age 2 1/2, regularly uses the phrase "Why don't you Google it?" when you say you don't know the answer to a question.

    When your 14 month old's new nanny asks you how to pronounce a difficult word, looks astonished at the answer and says 'he was right' and never again questions his corrections of her (very good) English.

    when your DS4 (like all males), who hates to shop, volunteers to go grocery shopping just so that he can read books at the grocery store.

    When your son comes home from school and repeats verbatim what his teacher told him. Then when you meet with the principal about it, the teacher changes the story. So you then bring up what he said the principal and everyone in the office told him verbatim as well as all the other things he heard while waiting there.... The looks on the faces are then priceless.

    Your 22mo describes in detail the angst felt by trees before being felled by a feller buncher.

    I call internet foul. That is cruelly light on detail.

    When DD told her Kindergarten class about herself.....favorite things, food, color, etc. She told them her favorite book was the dictionary and then told them how to use it!
