The "holiday gifts" thread showed some of us that some of our dc are relatively close in age and we didn't know it! So maybe we should do sort of a "ptgc roll call" to see how old and how many dc we have!!

Me:

dd is 3.5 and baby dd is 1 year old.

Mine are all in my signature-- Bean is recently seven, Boobah is five and a half, Bella is three and a half, and Bear will be two in February. They're all fun, fantastic human beings. Bean is profoundly gifted, Boobah presents very differently but I have a feeling she'll turn out to be highly gifted as well (at least). Bella is most likely also profoundly gifted, and Bear is a riot-- clearly a very bright little fellow, but it's hard to tell what's him and what's Bella's obsession with learning (and oh, she is *obsessed*... not that anyone here understands that ).

Rynna, Mama to Bean (8), Boobah (6), Bella (4) and Bear (2)

My oldest son is almost 7, but normal. My little one is almost 4 (3 weeks!) and seems to be highly gifted.

DS, who hasn't been test but we suspect is gifted (his preschool teachers also think he's gifted,) is 3 3/4. He'll be 4 around the beginning of February.

OT, has anyone else noticed this seems to be a pretty active forum considering it's TG. I had actually expect more traffic over in the foods forums, but it was ages before someone came and helped me with a non-dairy evaporated milk substitute (or maybe it just seemed like ages, b/c I was in a panic. )

We're right there with Kate and Rynna in the "outnumbered by little people" club.

DD1: almost 6
DS1: 4
DD2: 2
DS2: infant

Fortunately, the girls are able to keep themselves busy without getting into too much trouble. DS1 is a different story. At the rate he's going, he's going to have dismantled the whole house before long.

I just hope he outgrows this stage before his baby brother gets old enough to join in.

DD 2. Too early to tell how gifted.

I watch her put a puzzle together and despair of her ever figuring out spatial relationships. As in, she'll never be able to drive let alone put together a puzzle.

And then she starts sequence counting or rattling off letters. Plus I think she is getting close to reading her first words. I was joking with a momma that once DD learns to read, I will likely never hear from her again unless it is demands for more books.

As for Ruff's (did I get the name right??) levels--DD is all over the spectrum on the traits listed.

Mine are suspected. Suspected from family history, others comments, and general freakishness.

DS will be 4 in a few days, and DD will be 7 in January. I'm not sure how gifted they are, or even if they are gifted (but I'm guessing they are.)
