Tonight’s bedtime story: Dan, the Taxi Man.

I ask questions as we read because I want him to be College- and Career-ready or whatever. So I ask, “Where’s the Stop Sign?”

Stark: (Points to a stop sign.)
Me: How’d you know that’s a Stop sign?
Stark: S-T-O-P. Stop sign. (He says touching all the letters.)
Me: I would have also accepted “it’s red” as an answer.

The video that follows is an early indicator that this kid would grow up to be brilliant like his mother.
