We're getting to the, "I can tell you what I want stage," though he doesn't quite speak well enough to give me that much detail. Right now it's more like, "no chicken, daddy. No!"

To be honest, I was never a kid person, either, but it's amazing the dorky/cute stuff you find yourself doing when it's your kid.
I started kindergarten like that and also started college early (state program let me "skip" part of high school). It's definitely not for everyone. I was social, had friends, chatted, went to birthday parties etc. Being social doesn't necessarily mean that you're happy, though. I never "fit" into any predefined cliques that developed during middle/high school, but I got along well with all of them and had many friends (and now, 3-4 I still regularly keep in touch with). I strongly believe having been a year later into school wouldn't have helped me in the slightest.
Just a contrasting opinion for you, gt, etc. I don't claim my experiences are the norm by any means, before anyone starts in on that.
Always good to hear a contrasting opinion. I don't imagine we'll start him early in kindergarten, just because we don't have a great reason to do so, but if he does turn out smart, I may be sending you a PM in about five years asking if we should bump him up a grade.
I'm also extremely happy with FLMM's moderation. His commitment to excellence, not just at modding but life in general, is really a role model for me.
