This is how my Grandma would describe Emma and I would have to agree. Here's why;
One day last week Emma was sitting on the counter in the kitchen and I was standing in front of her. She was looking me in the eyes and she could see her reflection in my pupils. I was surprised when she told me she could see herself in my pupils because I didn't know she knew what a pupil was. Emma then proceeds to tell me that when it's light out your pupils are small but when it's dark they get bigger. That brought on complete shock because Dave and I have never talked about pupils. I asked her where she learned that and of course she has no clue. Actually her exact answer was "I don't know I just learned it myself".
This brings us to yesterday morning. Dave and I were watching Fox News coverage of Hurricane Gustav. Emma was sitting on Dave's lap asking him questions about Hurricane's when she informs us that she knows how rain works. Of course Dave and I were very curious to hear her description of this thinking it would be something like God's tears. What we heard was, when there are puddles on the ground they turn into vapor and float to the sky. When they get to heavy it falls back down as rain drops unless it's cold then it comes down as snowflakes. Clearly Dave and I were not expecting this answer from her and we were silent for a few moments.
The only thing I could say was "and she can't start Kindergarten why?" I really would like an answer to this because it makes no sense. She can't tie her shoes so she can't start school even though she knows what rain is. Does this seem utterly stupid to anyone else?
