My kindergartener informed me today that she was the smartest kid in her
class. Oh no, I thought, is it already time for this conversation? (She
probably is the smartest. ) I explained about not bragging and
encouraged her to help the other kids if they didn't understand. Then
she told me how she knows that she's the smartest. Apparently she and
her teacher are the only ones in the class that can say "Who put the bop
in the bop-she-bop-she-bop" fast. Well. That's something.
