He's No Einstein, but
I know that I've mentioned before that Tucker isn't the brightest bulb in the pack. He doesn't say a lot, he's pretty clumsy (pretty sure he gets that from me) and I know that he's probably not destined for the Nobel Prize, but this kid is something else when it comes to mechanical workings and fine motor skills. I believe that each person is gifted in a certain way. Silas is very artistic and personable; he is very smart and has a great memory. Gavin has a strong athletic ability and is very neat and organized. He is an excellent planner and very comfortable in himself. Amelia is a charmer. She can get herself in and out of trouble in a flash. Her vocabulary is outstanding and in many ways, she is very similar to Silas.
Then we have my baby. He can take off and put back on any screw cap (toothpaste, sippy cup lid, ketchup); he can also turn on the water in both the bathtubs. None of my other kids ever had such fine motor skill aptitude. It makes me wonder where his gifts lie.
