I know every mother thinks her child is a genius, but other mothers have not had to play with my son. I seriously need to go back to school so I can keep up with him. Other ten year olds might be satisfied with a game of catch, going for a bike ride, or maybe playing with some cars. Not my Coders. His 'games' are a little more....involved. And a LOT more cerebral.
Today I came home from work and saw the counter covered in these drawings:
I knew what was coming, even before he made the announcement.
"Tonight, at 8:30, we're going to play Name the Microsoft OS"
That's right. He mocked up a typical desktop for every Microsoft operating system from Windows 95 to Windows 8.
I failed miserably. I got two right, but that's only because he helped by giving me hints (Cody: "Windows nnnnn..." Me: "Windows 95? 97? 98?"). I also increased my odds by recycling answers figuring I'd eventually get one right.
And when I quizzed him?
He got every single stinking one right.
Not that I'm surprised. The boy's a genius.
