My mobile number.
He is 2.5yrs old and recited my whole mobile number to me. Is it normal for a 2 year old to be able to recall a 10 digit number?

That seems pretty clever to me! My DD is 5 and has only just learnt our numbers

Did he kind of sing it? Either way it's pretty clever!

My nephew could do it. He is obsessed with numbers. Just started prep this year and they have him doing times tables etched in maths because he is so far ahead. Might have a gifted little munchkin on your hands.

I think it's normal, I wouldn't call it abnormal or anything like that.
Dd is 3 and gets confused counting to 10, she wouldn't be able to remember my phone number, she even has trouble remembering how old she is. but she knows each planet in the solar system, the names of their moons, she also knows the alphabet in English and Finnish.
There are things she can't do that other kids her age and younger can blitz though, and there is things she can do which others her age struggle.
It all balances out and works out in the end
However, your ds knowing your phone number is a cleaver and pretty awesome thing, we are trying to teach dd to call 000 and how to use it, we are so not getting inch anywhere! Lol

Wow I would say outstandingly clever! DD can count to ten but that's probably from watching too much telly!

I would say very clever.
She can count. 1, 2, 6, 10 ready here come...
My 2 year old just told me as I was cracking an egg into the frying pan " eeew scusting.. Chicken poo.. Chick chick bum.. Egg.. Eeew scusting".
Yep we have chickens and now we know she knows where they come from, exactly where they I from! Lol

My DS and 3.5 and he learned my mobile number at kindy when they first started at the beginning of the year. I never asked but I assume they did it as some kind of safety thing. Anyway, 3 is older than 2.5 so he has done well.

That's pretty cool. I was amazed when my almost 4 year old had typed down my mobile number into his DS and asked me if it was my number. I thought he must have copied it off something but nope, he had just heard me say it so many times that he remembered it.

I'd also say it's fairly normal. Not in the sense that most kids do it at that age, but that it's not ABnormal. Must have been pretty amazing to hear though
I love it when DD does something that I had no idea she could!
