She also learned half her alphabet when she was 2 because I was pregnant and wiped out by dinner time, so we'd watch Wheel of Fortune. lol
Oh, my goodness, mine too! He got a Sit N Spin, and instead of riding it, he would spin the thing, clap, and then shout out letters!

Great article. I had to cringe when DH asked me the other day if there was a HS curriculum we could order for DS. DS is 18 months.

Re: Article about early education.

I love it and totally agree!!! I have to admit I another one who just shakes my head sadly with every post asking what to do with their 2, 3, or 4 year old. We also are not unschoolers, but even our Kindergarten year is very relaxed. My current kindergartner is only doing lots of extra workbook pages because he is a self motivated, school loving child who even complained when I mentioned taking the whole week off for Thanksgiving.
