… so, I’ll share a little something about the kids, since that always makes everyone feel better…
Miles got a half-point taken off of his math assignment last week. It was a word problem, and he got the answer right (“If Mary has 7 apples and George has 2 apples, how many do they have together?”). He got a half-point taken off because, under the section where it read, “How did you reach this answer?”, Miles wrote, “I did math in my head.”
I love my kids.
Related to that, the whole “tattooing and piercing” thing has come up, but I was a little concerned about how my increasingly odd appearance might negatively affect the kids at school (something we’ve never really had to worry about). That’s when Crystal informed me that, for all intents and purposes, I was already screwed in that regard. Apparently, whenever anyone asks Lili and Miles what their parents do for a living, they reply, “My dad’s a web developer, and my mom’s a witch.”
My kids are awesome.
