Elemental Child’s Play


Here’s one of the most adorable videos you’ll see today, or any day:

She’s 26 MONTHS OLD and she recognizes the elements! She’s a Nerdist-in-training! I bet she’s even wearing the My Little Pony shirt in an ironic manner!

Well, okay, probably not that last part. But you gotta admit, this is impressive.

    Rose is very cute. The amazing thing is that most kids will light up like this if someone cares to work with them. I showed this to my 16-year old, who when he was 10 months old was singing “Your Mother Should Know” on a restaurant table and shocking the other diners – he just smiled. My daughter was about Rose’s age when we heard a piece on NPR about some guy who thought the extinction at the end of the Triassic Period might be due to a meteor impact – her response was, “hey, dat was my theory!”

    Everyone knows a child’s development depends on how popular or socially awkward they are during their teen years!

    Can this girl sub for Freshman Chemistry? lol

    The new sincerity is wearing a My Little Pony shirt UN-ironically, which she is clearly doing. She is so ahead of you all.
