I may be biased...

But think my child may be a genius. Sure, she may say funny things that make me laugh. Like:

We had a bowl of mangos on the table. She brought one to me and said "Mom, can I eat this flamango?

All of a sudden she thinks when cats meow, they are saying "Smell" but it sounds more like "smeeeyl". She got a cat costume for Halloween. She walks around practicing "smeeeyl, smeeeyl, smeeeyl."

She can sing every word of "Good Morning Baltimore" from Hairspray. I'm not exagerating - THE WHOLE SONG!

She grabbed my (ahem) love handle and said "What's these?" Since she's (almost) a genius, I corrected her and said "You say "What's this" - after all, she was only squeezing one.

We actually had a successful use of the potty last night (I'm telling you GEN-IUS!) OK, so it's the first success in months, but it was a gifted moment for me.

I hope everyone knows that I'm joking about her Mensa status, but all that aside, she did do something that blew me away last night. I was sketching some stuff for her room and she had some paper and markers and was sitting on the floor beside me. I wasn't paying much attention to what she was doing, but she stood up and handed me a paper and said "Look mom, I made a kitty." This is it.

My two year old! Drew this! All by herself! I'm sure nobody thinks it's as amazing as I do, but I was flabergasted that my child, who up until this point has only scribbled circles, actually drew a legible cat. For a few moments, I was the proud momma of a child "genius". Then she moved the paper in front of my face and said "smeeeyl."

I'm so laughing out loud! That is really amazing!!! I'm gonna have to vote for the child-genius based on the picture alone. I think that is really amazing for a 2 year old. And I've had a few.

Mmm...my 4 year old doesn't draw that well. We all know that she doesn't speak as well as AJ either. I say GENIUS!

That is such a great picture she drew! She is a genius! My favorite picture you posted of her is the one in her cowgirl boots and she is pulling an attitude holding her glasses. I love that pictures of her!

I found your blog off of Laurie's. This is amazing. She really does seem like a very smart girl! I am a preschool teacher and, seriously, that drawing from a two year old is not normal!!
