My Ridiculously Smart Son

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

So, I’m definitely NOT one of the parents who just expects their kids to be gifted (contrary to what the author of “Stuff White People Like” says). However, Ian has been flooring me with some of the things he’s done. The most recent of these happened about a week ago, when he, at 3 1/2 years old, sat down with his DoodlePro (a.k.a. Magna Doodle) and proceeded to write his name. Backward. Upside Down. And it was perfect; he flipped the thing over, and there was his name, perfectly legible, including the “N”, which I was sure would be a stumbling block.

Ridiculous.
