I have a root domain, lets call it:  DomainA.com.  I created a child domain.  Called Child.DomainA.com

why is it that i cannot place my account (in parent domain) in the domain admins of child.domainA.com?  

what sense does this make?  The enterprise admins were added to the Domain controllers administrators group, but not domain admins.

Because the domain admins is specific to eachdomain, allowing the delegation of permissions for that domain only.

The enterprise admins is then added to the domain admins to give an Enteprise or Forest administration group.

You said -
"The enterprise admins is then added to the domain admins to give an Enteprise or Forest administration group. "


yes - but i cannot add the enterpise admins to my child domain's domain admins group.  Therefore my enterprise admins, are not so enterprise :(.

i believe that is because it is a global group and can only contain domain users.

yes but the default domain admins group is a global group.  you can't change it.  So i guess what i'm saying is, that by default when you add a child domain.  youre enterprise admins are not really enterprise admins because they can't administer any servers in that child domain unless they are explicitely added to that servers administrators group, or they have an account in the child domain that is in the domain admins group for the child domain.

if this is true, then i have to throw down a wtf on that one?

Yes, that is correct ;) you need to create a new group.

Fantastic.  I just wasn't thinking clearly (like microsoft).  It's obvious the 'Enterprise' is not all domains. LOL.

thanks for the clarification.
