  • So my wife comes into my bedroom this morning all excited. "Mike!" she says. "You're not going to believe what our daughter just did!"

    I roll my eyes and say, "I'm not ever surprised by her anymore."

    She ignores me, "I walk into the living room and there she is sitting in her high chair picking cherios out of her bowl and saying; "uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, sieta! She counted to seven in spanish out of nowhere!"

    I laugh. "That's Mialee. Not surprised."

    She is 25 months and counts to thirty in English on occassion, sings her ABC's and a lot of pop songs, and carries lengthy conversations with us already.


    I read that some children start off fast and most of those slow down later on. I hope this is not the case. I need to find ways to keep her mind stimulated and to keep her intelligence growing at the pace it has been. I don't want her to slow down, I want a brainy kid!


    Now... if only she'd get potty trained. I feel we are falling behind on this one...

  • I don't think 25 months is late to potty train. My 4-year-old still doesn't use the toilet consistently, and Lukas, who's 2-1/2 hasn't ever gone on the potty.

    Know what you mean about the out-of-the-blue skills. Both my boys have come out with things I don't remember teaching them. She's probably a Dora fan and picked it up from watching.

    That's great!

    I wouldn't be in too big of a hurry though-- she has plenty of time to be "brainy." She'll only be a baby for a short time.

  • I was going to say I bet she is a Dora fan!

    I feel like Avery is on the lower end of milestones, she walked later, crawled later, talked later, and I'm cool with that. I want her to stay little for as long as she can... she has the rest of her life to be advanced

  • Yes, she is definately a Dora fan! And Diego!

    I see the point of not pushing them to grow up too fast, I don't want that! But I do want her to continue to learn, and want to come up with ways to help this. I think back on how I didn't perform to my ability in school. I want Mialee to do much better and she seems very bright. I want to take advantage of this.
