I had to laugh at this sentence.
From a parenting magazine, where a mom is answering the question "What trait of yours do you hope your child doesn't inherit?":
"My stubborn nature. The bad thing is that at age one and a half, I think he already has some of it!"
According to this sentence, the mom, not the son, is one and a half. Let's rephrase:
"The bad thing is that at age one and a half, he already has some of it, I think!"
