Everyone seems to be pretty amazed at Hunter's fantastic skills.
I had an childcare inspector come in the other day and comment, jokingly (yet still seriously awe-struck), that "He's just about ready for college!"
One parent I interviewed went on about how, she has a friend with a four year old and, for only being five, Hunter was really smart.
The repair man had his two cents to put in, too, commenting how bright Hunter was.
Their cause for amazement?
His intense sandwich making skills.
I did not think spreading peanut butter and honey on a piece of bread was that much of a rocket science. Seriously.
And while they might have thought he's bright, I just call it lazy parenting.
You see, at three years old, when I was making lunches for three kids under three, Hunter was kept busy making his own sandwich. And setting the table and doing other little things like that that toddlers love to do and keeps them out of trouble (while learning a thing or two, it wasn't all selfish). And now he has extended his culinary skills to helping himself to a significantly wide variety of lunch and breakfast materials, with the exception of those which require flames or intensely sharp blades. Although most of the time, he just ops for a sandwich.
I guess one person's laziness is another person's genius.
"Thou preparest a table before me..."
