The younger girls have been learning their states and capitals this year. Every morning we go through the flash cards and Baby Wingnut is always right therein the fray wanting to participate. When the girls get stumped, I whisper the answer to Baby Wingnut so that he can "win" a flash card, just like his sisters.
Early last week we were going through the cards as I read out "Lansing", Baby Wingnut came tearing around the corner and called out "Michigan!" I was floored. I stood up and began cheering for my brilliant toddler. The rest of my crew began laughing out loud.
"What?" I questioned.
"Mom, he's been running circles around the house for several minutes chanting Michigan! Michigan! Michigan!"
So much for my child prodigy. Sigh.
