  1. The difference between theory and practice is smaller in theory than it is in practice.

  2. Patchouli give me a migraine - I didn't know my friend started wearing it until I hugged her. :(

  3. My kids are trying to figure out if all three of them will ever have ages that are prime numbers in the same year.

      It already happened for my kids, but won't ever again. They were too young to know it, and indeed I never thought of it till right now!

      That sounds like a great math problem!

      We had 7, 11, and 13 and 13, 17, and 19---both for only about six weeks!

  4. My grown-up son is home from Japan for a few weeks. We had coffee together this morning then he did the dishes. :D

      I hope you have a wonderful visit with him!

      I am so happy for you both. Have fun.

  5. I think I had a weird day. I've already explained medical marijuana and dunce caps. It's not even lunchtime yet.

      My eldest had "douche" as a spelling word yesterday. We went through the full historical range of meanings because I didn't want to her misunderstand if she came across it in an older work. Much like the use of "ejaculate" in late 19th Century kids lit. :P

      I got to explain spit balls. :)

  6. My kids are having a brain freeze contest - I think I win because I'm not playing.

  7. Save me from kids who must be perfect. My dd12 knows about barbarian "invasions" but not about barbarian "migrations". It is stopping her from answering a short essay question.

      We call it "analysis paralysis" here;-)

      I really like that. I'm going to steal that phrase.

      Well, then there is the flat squirrel on the highway of life;-)

  8. A tiger does not proclaim its tigritude. It pounces. ~ Wole Soyinka

      Is not the pounce the proclamation of the tiger of his very being?

  9. Yes dear, the grammar book is supposed to start with Subjects and Predicates again.

  10. I probably shouldn't eat frosting with a spoon. My kids are sure that I'll make myself sick, again.

  11. My youngest just asked me if she could read The Wind in the Willows next. I think I will quit worrying about her reading now.

  12. Teaching my dd to use a skill saw isn't as scary as I thought it would be.

  13. I was sitting on the couch with dd8 in my lap watching her knit while dd12 practiced a piece from Carmen on her cello. About 2 seconds after I noticed my moment was idyllic, older dd got frustrated and younger dd dropped a stitch and started to complain. Got to enjoy moments of peace while they last.

      I guess that's why they call them "moments"! :P

  14. This morning at 1am my son graduated from college in Tokyo! We watched online and are celebrating with him next week in Rome.
