‘But he’s done that for ages’, I said while facing the horrible realisation that what I thought was special to RB is included as a standard development check on the nine month development review. Goddammit I’m a typical parent. ‘But my child is gifted.’ Nope, turns out my eyes are biased.
But if I get my head out my star for a minute, aren’t babies miraculous? The way they learn, and are programmed to learn. Every day RB astounds me. He progresses. I wish I could share his pace of progress. I’d be Michelle Obama by this time next year.
