My husband is convinced that our son is Boy Genius. I think he just does a bunch of super cute things that make us smile. And laugh. Oh how he makes us laugh. Maybe he is a genius trapped in a tiny boy body. What do I know?
The main talent that Boo possesses which makes his proud papa believe he should be awarded the Boy Genius medal is his uncanny ability to hum a tune to perfect pitch. Boo loves to sing all day long. I mean, All Day Long. It’s beautiful. He has diversified his singing repertoire from just humming the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star/ABC tune to also adding into the mix: Happy Birthday (which he sang to me a few times on my birthday – aaawww), Wheels on the Bus, Old MacDonald, Frere Jacques/Where is Thumbkin, and another song I always forget until he sings it, in addition to whatever song we are singing/making up. All kids hum and sing, yea yea, but here’s the thing: he can hum a tune to perfect pitch after hearing it just once. It’s a little freaky. He has the tempo and rythm down, the inflection, the pitch. It’s all there, and it happens fast. Is this normal? Please feel free to also make my husband happy and smug and confirm that yes, our 21-month-old child is, in fact, a boy genius.
