Not really. I thought he was just a hyper little boy who happened to be smart and maybe a bit bored.

Can you explain what you mean by normal? My two year old is a weirdo, and no one needs to tell us that :)

We love our weirdo

I began to think my little darling was an asshole. I mean why else would he step over his book bag on his way out the door?
And why was he ignoring me when I said do A.B.C.

Turns out it was ADD. he literally didn't see the book bag, just an obstacle. And he could remember A. (B+C) was legitimately forgotten within 2 minutes.

meeting general milestones in time and displays behavior within the norm considered for the age of said child...now explain what you mean by your child is a 'weirdo'

You can speak with your doctor, ask people you are friends with who have children the same age (take this with a grain of salt), and look up milestones for that age group online . 

How old is your kiddo?  Are you concerned about something or just curious?

My son is a weirdo......just because he is.  He is a huge 2 year old goof ball.  He gets mad when you call Orcas "killer whales", his favorite animal is an Okapi and he sleeps with two stuffed ones. He calls us "Mama Kitty" "Dada Kitty" and "Wessy Kitty" and   then purrs as he hugs us.  He potty trained himself at 14 months old, and asks for quiona. Dude is just weird.
