Peter The Wiz

Peter came running up to me one afternoon yelling

"Look, Mommy . . look, a rectangle!!"

I looked down and found that Peter had 'drawn' a perfect rectangle with his Etch-A-Sketch.

Wow! I can't even draw a set of stairs on that thing!!

Peter was doing his 'school work' (as he likes to call it) in his Kindergarten Workbook, and we were talking about letters. Well, it had been a while since we have gone through letter recognition, so I was treading it slowly. He took off like a bandit! He remembered everything we had learning thus far, and he loves learning - so that makes it easy on me!
One of the pages we were working on, I wanted him to use the color of the word. So, 'RED' would be written with a RED CRAYON, etc. So, he eagerly picked up a red crayon and wrote 'red' in lowercase letters.

I, then, said "Great . . now write 'red' in uppercase letters" Thinking that I would need to help im remember what they looked like, I asked him if he would like help. He refused, insisting that he did it all by himself - and wrote 'RED' in all capitals.

I was impressed!!! So, I thought I'd mix things up a bit and said, "Now write the word in 'small letters'." He did just that . . .

I laughed at how small the letters were and asked Pete why he decided to make them SO small? He said to me, "Oh, you said 'small' letters . . did you mean 'lowercase' letters?"

Whatever, my 4 yr old just outsmarted me - nuts!!

I don't know what we're going to do with this kid . . .

but we sure love this boy!!!!
