The 3-year-old Genius

I know all parents think their kids are the smartest, but this is different. I'm talking Einstein-level genius here. (Ok, maybe not, she can match her socks. So maybe I don't want Einstein-level genius.)

Anyway, yesterday, my daughter was trying to tell me something, and she started it by saying, "OK, get this, this is the deal." I realize a lot of the time she's parroting what she's heard, but she parrots it in context, and that's pretty impressive, at least to me. So I asked her: "Did you turn 15 overnight? Did you go to bed and wake up and suddenly you were 15 years old?" It was her response that got me.

She replied to me in all her 3-year-old innocence, "Do I look 15?"

I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried...

  1. Hilarious, Jim. They just grow up so quickly, huh? I remember telling Monique to stop growing up so quickly and she said that didn't want and that she was trying to stop!
