Whose child is this!  

Friday, 4 June 2010

Now, I think I may have mentioned how bright Jordan is, he picks things up easily and retains them. Of course this is why he just passed a ton of exams with top grades, and why he takes an extra advanced maths class (just for fun!)

I do sometimes wonder where he gets it from, but I am just glad he has the ability.

But even I was surprised when he announced that he wanted to learn Japanese...okay, so I got him the books and CD's he asked for, but on flicking through and realising there are about 10 different alphabets and about 2000 characters, I was less than optimistic...

Well, just a few weeks later, Jordan has memorised most of the alphabet, knows dozens of phrases, has learnt what alphabet is applied where and can read quite a few phrases as well.

I am very impressed, of course Jordan thought maybe a trip to Japan to try it out was in order...nice try J, a trip to the nearest Sushi bar will have to do!

    Good for Jordan!

    A Japanese friend wanted to take me to lunch for my birthday and said I had to try sushi. You know how there are certain foods that you just KNOW you won't like? So I told him to order some tempura dishes as well. I took one bite of sushi, pushed the plate towards him and said, "You said I just had to try it." lol!

    thanks Dragon, he makes me proud...usually lol!

    J.J. thats funny, thats exactly what jordan (also known as JJ by the way) has always done when I say try it, i'm pretty sure, that even if he loves it, he wouldn't admit it lol!

    It's OK Missy, we have banned the kids from any involvement in the oposite sex until they are at least 30...I am sooo gonna be one of them mums who says no-one is good enough for their boy!
