Profoundly Gifted

I had a mother call me once and tell me that her child was "profoundly gifted." 

I was concerned. As the mother of two reasonably bright children myself, one of whom had spoken in complete sentences at 18 months, ("Mommy, do octopuses have testicles or just tentacles?" he asked while I was changing his diaper.)

I was sure it was a bad sign. A parent who had bought into a label she thought would bring her child joy and fulfillment. 

Oops.

In response to that call and interview that followed it, I made this little video.
