This would be a great Mother's Day Gift.
My Kid is Smarter Than Your Kid
Can I just brag for a moment about how smart Princess is? Well, she is, you know. The "What to Expect" book says that at her age, a child "might even possibly" be able to point out one body part. This means that pointing out one body part is a very advanced skill.
Princess knows the following parts, and can point them out on herself and others:
Where's your belly?
She can also do animal noises for lions and monkeys, and she can point out a ridiculous number of animals in her books. I wonder how much of this brilliance has to do with me being home with her? I don't know that it does. But I like to think it does. I spend an ungodly amount of time reading books to her and telling her what everything is - and she is picking up on it. Would she get the same attention in daycare that I give her at home, spending every waking hour learning and playing and experiencing new things? Who knows, maybe she would be even more brilliant if she was in daycare? But I don't think so.
