X is athletically and academically gifted, a situation that facilitates the baby’s easy time in school. The teachers help the child in the best way they can as they are informed of the happenings. Surprisingly, baby X succeeds in most of the activities that are meant for both sexes. X appreciates every undertaking that he pursues.
