I have a really bad sense of direction. Even on routes I have taken many times before I can get lost. I have trouble with North, South, East, and West. Don't even get me started on Left vs Right. I don't know why this is really. A friend of mine asked my dad if I came into the world backwards and my dad said "well actually she was breach." Well at least I get it honestly.
I bring this up because my son Max has an excellent sense of direction. He knows the second I take a different way home, he yells from the back seat "going the wrong way!" Then I have to explain to him why I went the way I went.
We were at St Joe's a while back for some apt and we left the hospital a little differently than we had entered. I was looking around the parking lot for our car and Max pipes up and says "the car is over in there mom" Oh yeah, so it is.
My favorite happened just recently. The family had gone to the Hands On Museum and Jeremy lead us around the block the wrong way to get inside. On the way out he said we should go the other way, and we did and i looked at jeremy and we both quietly said I wonder if Max will notice. Sure enough "your going the wrong way mom and dad" He so did not get that from me.
