These made me laugh, for anyone who hasn't read them before
"You know you are the parent of a gifted child, when..."
...you are browsing haematology textbooks on amazon for her 4th birthday
...your child asks if she can get a toy while you're thrifting, she passes by racks and shelves of toys and dolls and zeros in on a box of "telling time" flashcards and begs to have them
...you tell her you think you're coming down with a cold and she sympathetically tells you there are no vaccinations for the cold virus but that if you get plenty of rest and fluids you should feel better in a few days.
...Your kid is trying to memorize the periodic table while her friends are working on the alphabet
...You often have songs by They Might be Giants stuck in your head instead of twinkle twinkle (The sun is a mass of incandescent gas....or a miasma of incandescent plasma, as the case may be)
...every day starts with a grand scheme, plan or query
...Her library books cover topics such as energy, levers, atoms, dna...and Curious George
