Nobody Believes MeMay 25, 2010
A few weeks ago, I was talking to my daughter’s doctor and mentioned that she could speak at nine months and was fully conversational at two years old.
“I find that hard to believe,” the doctor said.
I shrugged. As Ripley said, believe it or don’t. My little girl was an alert and brilliant conversationalist by the age of two. And she isn’t alone.
I have been bragging about my daughter’s early conversational skills for years. People who knew us then will remember, newcomers don’t. Later, she taught herself to read in about a day.
Some children get language early. I didn’t; I waited until I was about four, then created my own language. Later, around high school, I finally figured out how to tell you all about me. As you can see, I am still at it.
