Are you smarter than a 3 year old?

Adrian gasps "Mummy!  How did that happen....beneath Finley's right eye?"

I'm sorry.  Pardon?

I follow where his little index finger is pointing to on Finley's face.  Sure enough, there's a good gouge "beneath Finley's right eye".

This is my THREE year old uttering the word beneath and actually being correct in pointing out the direction of right.  And I'm not talking about a 3 year old that is turning 4 next month.  He just turned 3 last month.  Like 5 weeks ago.

Okay, alright, we all believe our children are geniuses in some capacity.

I'm no different.

I am afraid he's smarter than me some days.

Actually, most days.


And absolutely amazing.

Oh, and the gash under Fin's right eye?  Just a self induced scratch.

Might be time to trim his nails.

That's always a fun time.

A blog entry unto itself.

Adrian is question. And Finley is funny and laid bad. Very different, very adorable boys. What I have always found the most surprising about becoming a parent (and now a grandparent) is that not long ago these children were not a part of our lives and now we can't imagine our lives without them.

Ok, my amazement to this is that he knows the difference between right and left! Smart Cookie!

Well, Tanya, I'll be perfectly honest and admit that him saying right and pointing correctly beneath Fin's right eye MAY have been a coincidence. He only gets his lefts and rights correct 50% of the time. ;)
