While we were reading about the Clever Little Penguin in Audrey Wood's, Little Penguin's Tale, Tyler told me, "Mom, I'm more clever than a lion or a tiger or any other animal or person." It made me think about Yarn Harlot/Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's Twitter on 3/2/10 that said "I guess I'm glad that she's clever, but damn. Wouldn't it be easier to raise kids who were just dim enough to be malleable?"

I think that I am in for years of laughter/frustration with this clever child. Already I find myself needing to be super analytical of anything that he says to me so that I can try desperately to remain 2 (3 would be even better) steps ahead of him down whichever primrose path he is trying to lead.

You are in the chess game of your life, like all mommies of smart kids. Enjoy.
