Pint-sized patriot

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CBS 8) - If you want to know what Rockford Ramirez knows -- and believe me, this 2 1/2-year-old knows plenty -- all you've got to do is turn on a camera. He'll rap you all the presidents.

With encouragement from his parents, Rocky and Raquel and a kid-friendly iPhone app, Rocky has developed an inquisitive attitude.

In fact, this prodigy is so tech-savvy that his mother began seeing pictures on her Facebook page that she didn't post.

"He's not allowed to look at pictures or videos on our iPhone," Raquel said.

Now that Rockford has counted the presidents and conquered the country, he's moving on to continents.

"He can count up to 100 and identify numbers up to 1,000. He can read, I would say kindergarten or first grade level," father Rocky said.

All this leaves his parents proud, amazed and somewhat confused.

"He knows stuff that we don't," Raquel said.

But this talented two-year-old is ready to share what he knows, if you're ready to roll.
