We are big into shapes here at the Yoy household. We have toys that identify shapes and books. Big E requests that I draw shapes with chalk on the driveway and with crayons on his art easel. We have even expanded beyond the holy trinity of the square, circle, and triangle.
Today Big E pointed out his window and exclaimed...
Sure enough, he was pointing at the four-way stop outside his window. There are four stop signs, or in his mind, octagons.
I was so impressed with him. How smart is my Big E?
When Mr. Yoy came home we were talking about our day and I told him this story. I was beaming with pride. Then Mr. Yoy burst my bubble. He said he had showed Big E the stop signs yesterday and explained to him that they were octagons.
Dang, I am NOT raising a baby genius!
There is always hope for Little E.
