Noah reading his college level biology book :)

When Noah opened it, at first he said, “Mommy, I’m not going to read this — there aren’t enough pictures in it! I use pictures to determine whether or not I want to read about something.” 🙂

Then he became super obsessed with trying to figure out what grade the book was for, I told him to let that go — once he realized it was a textbook, I could see he only wanted to read it if it was for his grade level —

I put my foot down hard.

“Noah, you need to let the grade level thing go — you will never, ever, be normal, and frankly, that’s a good thing.”

Then I told him if he reads something he doesn’t understand, he can always ask Dr. Crosby or Dr. Pitchon to explain it to him.

He thought about that for a second ‘okay, sounds reasonable…’

Now he’s been flipping through the book for the last few minutes…he’s on the vitamin page, reading a chart about deficiencies of vitamins in human beings…

Noah is now rambling on about iodine deficiency and its impact on the thyroid, lol…I might have made a mistake buying this book–I can see he’s gonna be lecturing me on what he’s reading along the way 🙂

Did you know if you don’t get enough salt it causes muscle cramping? Or that Vitamin A is so important, that a deficiency will cause sight, skin and immune problems?

Class is officially in session 🙂

About hopeforanswers

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
