There isn't a more perfect hat for this boy's head. First of all, he loves buffalo and totally geeked out when he saw it. He usually doesn't like attention drawn to him, so I was happy he even let me take the picture let alone put the thing on his head.
Second of all, he has a huge cranium which completely filled the hat. Without it he looks like a little white-boy version of Megamind.
I've known for a while that Brandon's smart - I might have had an inkling or two after he read several 600 to 800-page books.
As a seven-year-old.
Then one day after used the word incidentally in casual conversation, it occurred to me he might have more going on upstairs than we realized.
Just maybe though, one can never be too sure!
And when he pulled this little number out of his hat
I thought DAMN! I think the kid just might be a little brainiac!
Today I received a letter in the mail, and it was about Brandon:
The StarGATE Selection and Placement Team is pleased to inform you that your child, Lil' White-boy Megamind, has been selected for participation in the Gifted and Talented Program...
Like OH MY GOD he is smart!
All kidding aside, of course I've always known my little man is smart. I just want to take a minute to say how very proud I am of him! I wouldn't want to brag about him so much if he walked around boasting and being a giant big-headed jerk off.
Instead this child is one of the most kind-hearted little boys I've ever known. A compassionate, giving, loving, humble little guy who just goes along in life as if it's perfectly normal for a kid his age to use big words and read giant books.
I'm proud of him for being smart, and I'm proud of him for his awesome character; however, as I say to him as often as I can, I am most proud of him for just being him.
I love you Bubba!
