And that's how I know that B'nut is gifted

Just so you all know, B'nut is probably gifted.

I'm not saying this just because she spells her name Bribget, and recognizes most of the letters of the alphabet.

"What else starts with H?"  

"PUMPKIN!"

"or... Halloween?"

"Or Pumpkin."

But the main reason I believe she is gifted is because of the conversation I had with her the other day.

We were in the beige mini van driving to school.

Well, she was riding.

I was sadistically trying to run down the squirrel that refused to get out of the middle of the road.  Seriously, suicide squirrel...

AND B'nut says, "Look mom, the Baby Girl Squirrel grew up to be a Mommy Squirrel."

And I said, "Yes B'nut.  Baby Girl Squirrels grow up to be Mommy Squirrels."

AND THEN I quickly added


"Baby girl squirrels can also grow up to be scientists squirrels, or Dr squirrels or the President of the United Squirrels of America...."

"Or runner squirrels?"

"Yes, B'nut.  Or Runner Squirrels".

I love that Runner falls on the "scale" right up there with Md. and President.
