  1. Awesome post! I confess to being guilty of focussing on the shortcomings of my brilliant, absent-minded professor of a 12-year old. He still gets dressed wrong half the time, can’t remember a two-step instruction (or even a one-step instruction sometimes), etc. And you’re right — when we’re stressed out, it’s hard not to wish a child of that age could be able to manage a little more on his own. Thanks for the reminder to back off a bit and get some perspective. This *is* what genius looks like, at least in this child.
