The X Man is a genius.

As I've mentioned in past posts, I'm often floored by how fast the X Man picks things up. Almost everyday he surprises me with something new that makes me say "When the heck did you learn that?!". Not to mention that he spends quite a bit of time upstairs and the neighbors are constantly telling me how impressed they are with his intelligence.

So last night before bed, the wife had the X Man on her lap and was showing him alphabet flashcards. On each card was a letter and a picture of something that began with that letter. I was watching out of the corner of my eye and was astounded to see that he knew almost every single one. Even the words he couldn't pronounce (Like 'Xylophone' for X), he still got pretty close on. In fact, some of the words he even recited in Italian as well as English.

My little guy is a bilingual genius. We're gonna be rich.

Don't forget Tagalog! And the dialect V speaks too.

And have you heard of parents sending their kids to model agencies? Hmmm....

Being a Pinoy, your wife is most certainly teaching him Tagalog on the sly. When you see him, say 'Ako Mag Tagalog!' and see what he does.
