Dear Harvard,


I realize that the freshman class of 2028 may not be on your radar just yet, but I wanted to keep you apprised of two little girls that you are really going to want at your university. In fact, I would go so far as to say that you should go ahead and put them on your waiting list, right now.

You might be wondering how I can make such a bold statement when my girls are just north of a year. I'm happy to explain.

Parenting Magazine came out with a great checklist in their April 2011 issue to determine if your child is gifted, or just smart. This list gives me and thousands of other mamas the opporunity to determine that my daughters are gifted, just like that!

I know you need evidence. I've compiled a summary of my findings below:
  1. The girls have impressive memories. Hadley only had to be shown one time how to blow kisses sign "thank you".
  2. They both have great, very sophisticated senses of humor. Burps and toots don't result in so much as a smile.
  3. They play intensely. They will pour over puzzles and books for hours.
  4. They have unbounded intellectual energy. They will tirelessly try to figure out how things work.
  5. They are great problem solvers too. Brynne will look at a toy under the couch from every angle before determining the best method of retrieval
  6. They are self-starters--they practically teach themselves!
  7. They have great creative instincts--they love making music and love to dance with or without music.
I can now say, with absolute certainty, that my daughters are geniuses. It really would be in your best interest to snatch them up before it's too late.

Lol, love it. You can hope for a two for one to Harvard, a BOGO if you will. By the time 2028 rolls around the cost of an Ivy League education will cost more than any house I will ever own. Lets all pray for scholarships!
