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. ;)

He is so cute. This cracked me up. I'm convinced my kids are geniuses with everything they do. And you know what? They are. I don't care what anybody says.

I love this! One of our kids said "green" for everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. What's your name? Green. Want more milk? Green. It was hilarious. Unfortunately I can't remember which kid it was. Hopefully I wrote it down somewhere. ��
