Wednesdays at the Bingham's

Today I registered Blayne for kindergarten.

I'm not exactly sure what all goes on, but they have little "interviews" with the kids to see what they know.

Apparently, my daughter is a genius.

(Also, I'm a very unaware mother because I had no idea. Like, seriously. NONE WHATSOEVER....)

(I also may have fallen in love with CAPS LOCK. but that's a totally appropriate story for another day... BACK TO YELLING AT YOU.)

TURNS OUT.

She can count to 100.

She knows all of her upper and lowercase letters. (And she knew that they were called upper and lower case...)

AND SHE KNOWS HER ADDRESS.


I KNOW I didn't teach her that.

(Because I'm a terrible person/parent and I can barely remember my own phone number and address. Pffht. WHY IS THERE SO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE CHILDREN?)

At any rate, she's brilliant. I'm exhausted. Both of those things are completely unrelated and we're just going to agree to ignore that fact, m'kay?

P.S. Did you hear? Cameron Rafati is performing live at the CBC'10 Social. {swoon}

  1. I find that hilarious, and I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing WITH you because that would totally be me. Turns out kids can be fountains of knowledge when they want to be. Who knew?

  2. I'm not at all surprised that she's brilliant. I'm guessing it runs in the family. :-)

  5. Of course Blaine is a genious! How could she not be with you as her Mom. And how could she not know her numbers when DadGuy is her dad.

  6. The first time that my oldest daughter came home with bits of knowledge that I had not taught her was WEIRD. Now she's going into high school. Weirder.

    I am registering my youngest for kindergarten, too. Double weird.

  7. Wow, if that's all I need to do to make my daughter a "genius" by kindergarten...maybe I give up, that's too hard. Haha! SO FUNNY! (I like caps too!)`
