Isabella is just so smart....

.... or so she has told us. In the last couple days she has informed us that she knows what sap is, what arepas are, and she learned this knowledge all on her own because she "is just smart." Tucker had sap on him and Kenny asked her if she knew what sap was, she did and explained it perfectly, he asked her who told her that and she said "No one, I'm just really smart." Today Amelia and I were reading a book that talked about cooking arepas in it (Isabella was on the floor coloring) and she said "I know what those are, they're pancakes, well kind of, but a little like biscuits." Ok, so that one floored me a little bit. And again who taught her this? "No one, I'm just smart." I really don't think she's thinking that she's lying, she just remembers this and assumes that she really is smart this way. :) I'm sure we've talked about sap to her and unless she remembers hearing about arepas in the womb, I'm assuming Dora. Not to worry, if you think my child is too prideful, she admits her shortcomings as well, she was telling someone the other day (after having to ask her name a second time) "sorry, I can't remember names good." :)

Hmm, that's actually pretty cool. She's confident but knows her limitations... She IS a smart girl!

I really like your new header.
