My Son's a Genius!

I know, I've had this title before. But when one's told her son could be mentally retarded hours after he's born, she sort of appreciates any moments he proves to be anything but a little more than the average proud momma. Such was this morning.

As I encouraged Tucker to eat the apple he asked for, "Tucker, you must eat your apple before the timer goes off. You may drink your water with it....and so on," I hear Judah pipe up from the living room with, "Eat it with a goat!"

For a moment I was puzzled until I remembered we read Dr. Seuss's "Green Eggs and Ham" yesterday. :)

Yep he is a genius!!! Way to go Judah...and, do I remember timers. Once when Emily was two and she was saying grace, she asked Jesus to take away her peas (she was born picky) and Dave and I were presented with a spiritual quandry. Do we make the peas dissaper and show a two year old how God can answer prayers, or do you leave them there and explain how sometimes God just helps you to do something hard, he doesn't just take it away magically!

He is such a smart little guy. And so adorable, too! God has totally blessed our lives with that little boy! They both are such a joy in my life.

Genius all the way!!! Amazing how they can not only remember things, but they pick up how to insert them into the appropriate context...

That's downright clever. The wit of kids never ceases to crack me up!
