Of course my son is a genious!

I'm still trying to figure out how I can post to my blog using my Blackberry.  If I could figure that out, then I would most certainly be posting more often.

Having said that, I had the most incredible weekend with my boys.  Sam is getting so big and I have to be honest, I can't believe his vocabulary at 2.5 years old.

I know it's wrong to compare my kid to other kids, and I know that every child does things at their own pace, but I seriously know that my kid is a genious.  I can actually sit and have a full conversation with my son and he can read books back to me.  Granted, he loves to make up stories, but that just confirms that he's a genious because he has the greatest imagination for his age. 

Plus, I think he has superior athletic ability.  He can pick up any ball and we just have to show him once what to do (well, he will only let us show him once) and then he can do it himself. You should see his basketball skills.  Maybe I should get him an agent...

Do you think your child is gifted as well?

It has been FOREVER since I've had time to sit down and write a blog.  Having a 2.5 year old boy, a family and 3 jobs doesn't leave time for much.  Therefore, my blog is going to turn into more of an interactive comment piece.  I will try to post updates, thoughts, curiosities and the like, and feel free to comment back (nicely of course).

Tonight's comment:  After Sam had a "sensitivity" to amoxicillin last week, which resulted in a head to toe rash, fever and 24 hours of painful diarrhea, we've had to get back to sleep training.  Mommy finally hit her breaking point last night and needed a good night sleep. Sam cried for a full 30 minutes and then was out like a light until 4am.  We had a little "battle" until about 4:45am and I won that round again.  Tonight he cried for a full 5 minutes.  Yup, 5 minutes.  Why was I so worried that he would never sleep well again?  Hopefully he will sleep through the night tonight. Fingers Crossed!!!
