Must brag about mine a tad. Our sophomore got the best score in his school on PSAT, beat all the Juniors too. 98th percentile for all ages who took it in the country. That's huge on the scholarship front. Practicing on SAT since 8th grade is paying off I think. And having a dad stay home. Pretty damn proud of him.

Awesome!
Tell him the income difference between a HS grad and a college grad. Unless he likes being a bartender or fixing cars.

Pippa, 4 yrs 11 months old did 7 bunny hops and a figure 8 (more like a figure 4) after skating lessons at the ice rink.
And she made a new friend.

Riggs, you never cease to amaze. Well done.



Yesterday I threw a bit of a detailed wobbler in the"Fuck" thread about how I can barely crack eggs and stir them anymore. It was a bit too much, so I deleted it.

First thing this morning, 40 degrees and dry) I was out on the deck with coffee and iPad while my 4 yr old Olivia was playing on the Dadstayshome Play Palace, and it dawned on me: quit beatin your head against the wall and taking breakfast head on. Olivia loves to help in the kitchen.

So this morning my 4 yr old did more than half the omelet making,most importantly, the things that really fatigue me. Instead of it being a major struggle that nearly brings me to tears, it was an incredibly wonderful shared learning experience that nearly brought me to tears. Instead of it being a demoralizing fading morning ritual, it was a very uplifting and gratifying experience that we can build on together.

Olivia cracked the eggs, added the heavy cream , the Janes salt, stirred, put butter in the pan, and poured eggs into pan. She also opened the sausages and put them in the other pan, and opened the cheese for.

ALL of which has become a major fucking struggle for me, after which I'm worn the fuck out.

Of course I was preaching baspic kitchen safety fundamentals the entire time, including where to keep your pan handles so you're less likely to accidentally hit them and knock the pan off the cook top, etc.

I added the cheese, and flipped the omelet (with two hands putting full body into it), but showed her the technique for flipping the sausage patties and let her practice doing that over and over again.








Well, time for her and I to go see how my buddy is doing as he prepares the new wheel-in shower for tile. Life is good. :-)
