When your kid is too smart:

The draw back to your preschooler knowing his shapes:

Day 1:
Mom: Matt, do you want your sandwich in rectangles or triangles?
Matt: Squares!

Day 2:
Mom: Matt, do you want your sandwich in rectangles or triangles?
Matt: Circle!

Day 3:
Mom: Matt do you want your sandwich in rectangles or triangles?
Matt: Octagon!
Mom: ????
(and he counted the sides to be sure I did it right.)

Oh my! If he is so smart what part of do you want triangles or rectangles didn't he understand. Octagons were not listed in the options. :) Just kidding. He is pretty smart. Cute stories.

it's your own fault, who taught him that stuff, they pick it up at home, he didn't learn about octagons out on the street,

I'm with Cathy, Octogon was not an option. What kind of children are you raising that answer multiple choice questions with an answer not on the list.

How will he handle standardized testing? He may never get into college if he can't pick from the provided answers.
