*** EVERYTHING ON THIS SITE IS TRUE -- EXCEPT FOR THE STUFF I MADE UP ***
Kristie;My husband and I realized that at 3 years old one of my girls was already WAY smarter than we will ever be. Yeah, we're pretty much doomed.KimSchool-tomorrow-whoohoo! Mom to:Daniel-Grade 8 (yikes!)Scott-Grade 6 (yikes x2!)Bryan-Grade 4 (yi...you get the point)Sarah-Grade 3Dana-Grade 3
I have teens. They are quite convinced my IQ goes down each year they get older. It's exasperating ... aren't you looking forward to the teen years? :) I'm having a contest this week with a $50 prize. Why don't you swing by and enter?!
We went on a trip to ride bikes Friday (my 50th) bday, out of state to a place we had never been. As we get off the interstate I say "we need to turn right and start at that end" the other three with me say "no we need to go left and start from that town" okay, we listen to everyone else. You guessed it we rode 17 miles pedaling, if we would had went my way it would have been 17 miles coasting! The kicker, my 19 year old says "I'm really sorry mom, but nobody expects you to be right" OUCH!!! That one goes in my book and they will never forget it. The upside, we got plenty of exercise, and I made it;)Kathy
One of our sons is freaky smart in science and when he was six years old he was talking about the chemicals in smoke (or fire...I really don't know) and I was amazed at what he was talking about because he certainly didn't learn it in school. Then he looked at me and said, "Mommy [still called me Mommy], why is it that you're so old [ouch] and I'm so young but I know so much more than you?"And it's true. :-(
Your 8-year old is extremely tactful.Cheryl
I agree with Cheryl. Can she come teach some of my seventh graders a lesson on tact? They could learn a lot.
Ooooh scary! She's growing up and getting smart enough to know it!
