Savanna's Brilliance...


Last night I was laying in bed getting ready to go to sleep and my daughter, Savanna Rose came in and laid down with me and wanted to talk for a while. We lay there and talked about a zillion things but I want to share with you just two things about her because it's so funny. Recently we got her FCAT scores back and it's amazing how brilliant this child is. I mean, my boys aren't lacking in brains by any means but Savanna seems to score out of the ballpark on things at times. And she can be so witty. Not to mention I think she's the most beautiful girl in the world...

Last night she's laying here talking to me about motors, and how things are powered and all kinds of stuff like she's an engineer or something. I was thinking, "okay, I've lived thirty years longer than her and I have no idea what she's talking about right now..." I had no idea she knew anything about motors. Then she says...

"and Mom, for the life of me I just don't understand dyslexia." I said, "what do you mean Savanna? She said, "Well, why don't schools and teachers just start making their tests backwards instead of telling these people, "now don't stress out or rush...just take as much time as you need..." ??? Doesn't all that seem like a huge waste of time??

I have to admit, I almost fell off the bed laughing at that one.
