Thanks for your responses, guys! I think I'm not crazy after all, since she's 'said' it a couple of times since I posted. Only in the middle of the night, though. Maybe she's less distracted in the dark? It is creepy in a way (like a cat talking!) but it's really neat to think that her little mind is absorbing so much. I doubt that she understands what it means though.

Strange that you bring this up. My husband and I recently ran into a woman at the mall who runs an antiques store. She told us about her daughter (now grown) who had a similar story.
When this daughter was 4 years old, a relative in their family was about to have a baby. The 4-year-old said, "I feel sorry for that baby." "Why?" the mother asked. The girl replied, "I remember being born. It hurt my head." And she went on the describe the burning sensation in her lungs, the rough feeling of the towels cleaning her and being handled, the chill of the room, the lights hurting her eyes.
The woman said she asked her daughter's pediatrician about it, wondering if the kid was OK. The doctor said that everyone remembers their birth experience to some point, but it's rare for them to recall it long enough to be able to recount the details.
This may sound far-out to some, but I personally believe it!
|He also had extremely high ESP levels; this used to freak me out..he could read my mind. Often he would say exactly what I was thinking. this happened all the time (and it always freaked me out)...when I had him do tests with it, he was often (but not always right). It more came when we were just hanging out or talking or something. He would tell me what I was thinking.
I had a cousin who could do this some..we would finish each others thoughts (we were both gifted), but nothing like my son would do. I have read one of the many components and associated traits common to gifted kids is having high levels of intuitiveness and esp, has anyone else had this with their gifted kids..
My IQ is not nearly as high as your son's, but I remember playing ESP games with my sister after the lights were turned off at night. We'd try to guess what color or word the other was thinking. We stopped playing the game when she got creeped out-- she accurately guessed the middle name of the boy I had a crush on ("Clark") on the first try.
I have more stories but that would probably be best saved for another thread.... I'm a newbie here and I don't want anyone filing me as a nut just yet.
Point being, I totally believe in ESP and I think gifted children are able to harness that phenomenon at times.
PS. Kudos to you for the extended nursing!
