But it's not that amazing. That's what I have to constantly keep from telling my sister Janet. She flew in on Saturday with her 9 month old son Brandon for a visit. I've since been regaled with all sorts of stories of the amazing things that he has recently learned to do all by himself:
I'm reminded of a stand up routine... though I can't for the life of me remember who's it was. The comedian was complaining that parents often attribute small accomplishments that their child makes with what they'll be when he grows up. For instance, "Look, Johnny is playing with that toy car. He's going to grow up to be a race car driver. Look, Johnny is running! He's going to be in the Olympics!" to which the comedian said, "He's also drooling, maybe he'll be in the Special Olympics."
I know... I'm a terrible uncle.
