I am a stay at home mom, my two children are my life. I have a 6 year old in the 1st grade who is very smart, and that causes some problems. He can read and do math well and while the others in his class can't he finds himself bored while the teacher stops to help the other children. As many of you know a bored 6 year old boy gets into trouble, he talks a lot and finishes his work before others are 1/2 finished. He loves music, acting and matrial arts. I keep him busy in a lot of different things because I want him well rounded and I really want him to sleep at night. I also have a 2-1/2 year old daughter who seems to be even smarter, but more of an artist. She likes to draw shapes and tells you what color they are and what shape it is. She can already count to 20, play kick ball, do flips, and knows most of the ABC song. She speaks in complete sentences and doesn't have a baby lisp. My hands are full and I am always busy, but I made them now this is my job.
