My Son is A Freaking Genius
My two-and-a-half-year-old son is smart. (Yes, I know all parents say this, but go with me here.) He's incredibly talkative for his age, knows some surprisingly big words, has a sense of humor, and can count quite high. Like any sane parents, we assume he's a genius.
Then, yesterday...this happened. He was standing around talking to my parents and I when, all of a sudden, he blurts out: "Five and two is seven!"
"Did he just add five and two?" my mom asked.
It sure as hell sounded like it. So I turned to him. "Nate, what's five plus two?" I asked.
"Seven!" he said.
Oh my god, I thought. He's two and he can add.
My son is Einstein.
I decided to test the theory.
"Nate, honey, what's one plus two?"
My parents and I leaned in, waiting for the inevitable brilliance.
My son thought about it for a second, smiled, and then answered triumphantly: "Black!"
One plus two equals black.
Good thing he's cute, too. ;)
