In my past life, before kids, and before my husband and I said good bye to our fellow countrymen and moved overseas, I used to be a teacher.

I’ll let you in on a little secret that all teachers know. Most parents think that their kid is the smartest child to walk the earth. All teachers, at some point have sat at a parent-teacher conference, internally rolling their eyes as a set of parents declare their child a prodigy.

Now that we have that out of the way, let me tell you something else.

My kid is the smartest kid alive! Seriously. It’s my professional opinion.

I will explain.
