ok - fair warning, if you can't stand people bragging about their kids, turn back now. but I figure, since my life basically consists of my applying for jobs and hoping that my money doens't run out before I get a new job, I have to take my pleasure where I can. my 4 year old son went in for testing today - we want to have him work on his prononciation, because he is having some trouble with his L's, and in order to get a speech therapist to look at him, he needed a full battery of tests. I knew he was smarter than me, and I thought he might also be smarter than my wife (who I believe in smarter than me), but he turned out to test very well - smarter than anticipated. the two individuals who tested him both said that they had never tested any kid who tested so well, and he was in the >155 IQ area. I'm also happy, because that isn't the "I am so freakishly smart I can't get a job or find friends and work at blockbuster for my whole life while plotting to blow up a school" range of intellegence, but it is a nice high functioning level. so, pardon me for bragging, but I had to tell somebody - and most of my friends are the parents of his friends, so I really don't need to tell them this.
