My Son the Genius

(While taking a bath last night, Sam pointed to the bathroom tiles.)

Sam: Look Mommy! A square!

Me: You're right, Sam, it's a square!

(Thinking in my head: "Whoa! My two-year-old is a genius. Sam then points to another tile.)

Sam: And there's a circle and there's a triangle. (Pause before pointing to another tile.) AND THERE'S A HELICOPTER!

Now Who's the Parent?

Last night around 10:30 pm John asked if I wanted to sneak into Sam's room to watch him sleep. I agreed, and off we went to peek in on our 2-year-old.

I went first. I slowly began to open the door--I got the door open by about 6 inches when I heard Sam's firm voice, "Close it."

John and I quickly closed the door and returned to our bedroom laughing like maniacs.

Sam's First Shakespeare

Sam has mastered his first Shakespearean phrase:

"Something is rotten in Denmark."

It's our cue that he needs a diaper change.
