Perfect Moment Mondays ~ Intelligence Quotient

Kyra: Mom, I kinda have a weird question to ask you.

Me: Okay – shoot.

Kyra: Well…is it true that the bigger your eyes and your, y'know … boobs are, that's the smarter you are?

Me: Where the heck did you hear something like that?

Kyra: I heard it on TV. This lady was talking to a guy and she said, "My Eye-Boob score is higher than yours, so you'll never be smarter than me." And I snapped my fingers like this and I thought to myself, "AHA! So THAT'S why Mommy is so smart." So Mom, is that true?

Me: (trying very hard not to shoot juice through my nose from laughing so hard) Well umm…I'm pretty sure what that woman said was IQ score. IQ means intelligence quotient. It's a measure of how smart you are. The higher the number, that's the smarter you are.

Kyra: (after a moment's thought and looking slightly deflated): Darn…because I already have the big eyes and I think I'm pretty smart already, so I thought that when I start growing to be a woman like you…then I'd be a GENIUS!

    You, dear Moxie, have just ruined my day. I have big boobs and always thought they were what made me so very clever. You ruined it for me. Sigh.

    Now I know why I “swing” between being completely brainless and genius! I have huge boobs, and not so big eyes. LOL!!
    Very cute! And by the way – thanks for your comment on my blog. I didn’t think of it as “You’re never too busy to show your family you love them” – and I think that’s a great perspective! Also – it would show them that they were born out of the love their parents share, and that their very being brings so much joy and love into the house.
    Yep – good perspective. Thanks for sharing it with me!

    Oh, that’s going to make me smile all night. Also, explains a lot. I’ve got nothing, a solid A cup.

    Awesome. My favorite part is that she would think that the official name is Eye-Boob and not Eye-Breast or something more clinical. 🙂

    That is just priceless! Eye-Boob – heh!

    LOL, that’s hilarious! Every time I get made that my shirts are too small, I’m going to remind myself that they’re a sign of intelligence. And you get smarter when you have babies, apparently. LOL.
