It started with my friend Jenifer. She made reference to 'Old Man Eleanor' and I thought she was talking about her Uncle or something.
We were in the car today and I said, "Parker, who is Old Man Eleanor?"
He responded, "Oh, that is Mrs. Jenifer's friend...the old Lego Obi-Won..."
So I blew it off and thought my son has too many legos!
Then tonight, the pieces came together! Parker has been blessed with an amazing mind. He has been recently pulled out of class twice a week to work with Mrs. Horn.
Tonight at the dinner table, I asked Parker if he met with Mrs. Horn today...
"Yeah Mom, we talked all about John Quincy Adams.."
I said " Oh, the second President.."
He corrected me, "No mom, he was the SIXTH President"
that he was known as ..
"OLD MAN ELOQUENT".....
I asked Parker if he knew what eloquent meant...and he proceeded to define the word better than I could.
He just switched the names "Eloquent with Eleanor"..because he thought it "sounded better".
I love my boys! They keep me busy! I also love this home. It is John Quincy Adams house...the SIXTH President...also know as
OLD MAN ELOQUENT.
