Today I saw what "My Baby Can Read". Teaching your baby to readat 9 months! Potty training as infants? Okay, first of all, if you choose to do these things, go for it. I'm NOT saying anyone is wrong, but I just don't get it. Why do people have to push their babies to do things older kids do? Don't our babies grow up fast enough with out us pushing them? Am I the only one who still thinks it's cool to carry around diapers and pull ups for my 2 month old and my two year old? Does anyone else thinks it's okay to be able to read a story to your kids and them NOT know the words? My DD doesn't know how to read so she makes up her own stories with the pictures. Even if I have read the story 20 times, she will still come up with something different. It is the greatest and most amusing thing to watch. And my DS will just stare at the pictures forever. I would rather have this in my home any day than a baby who can read.

I have the feeling that most people do this more to "show off" There's so many parents out there that will go to the limits to make sure their children are considered smarter, prettier, more popular, etc. etc. in comparison to their peers. Some parents might buy in to the "Oh, if your baby can learn to read at that age, he will be a genius when he's older!"
But once again, I think most do it to show it off so they can eat up all of the "oos" and "ahhs" and "Oh my!" "I can't believe your baby can do that!" etc.
