Wanna hear somethin' cool? Or at least what I might consider cool. Julia came home last night after going to my brother's birthday party. (I was teaching drum lessons and couldn't attend. Happy b-day Mike, although I don't think you visit here.) She said "Daddy, look what I can do: 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 1+3=4," etc. all the way to ten. I said "That's great honey, did you learn that in school today?" She said no she hadn't. I looked quizzically at my beloved wife. She looked back at me. "She didn't learn it in school. She just figured it out on her own." I'm no child development expert, but I think figuring out a little addition table on your own is pretty cool.

Replies: 1 person has rocked the mic!

Now, don't get me wrong brother ... I like your drum and firetruck obsessions. But it seems to me that you ought to be spending a bit more time creating a proper and fitting page about that wonderful young lady of yours. Jus' my lil' ol' opinion, das all.
