How did my kid get to be so smart?
Over the past few months his brain has become completely sponge-like and he’s picking up everything. The words coming from his mouth are amazing and his confidence levels have shot through the roof.
I know I’m completely biased but in my opinion the kid is an utter genius. I would like to say it’s down to the parenting; from the intellectual support and understanding we give Dexter day-to-day but actually it’s down to the Grandparents, the nursery and CBeebies.
Yes we read to him every night and yes we talk to him non-stop, but after a hard (ish) day at work I pick him up and he has always learnt something new. Something new every single day. It is amazing to see.
I know there will come a time when he will outsmart me (I suspect that might have already happened), and I hope there will come a time when Dexter will be such a high paid doctor/lawyer/footballer/dancer that the tables will turn and he will be able to look after his parents.
Thanks for reading
