Because You Don't Grow Out of Dorkiness

Dan and I have been teaching Shef "party tricks" of sorts. Little things; silly things; things that make us unreasonably proud and gleeful.

For example, here's a dialogue we repeat daily, if not more frequently:

Parent: Hey, Shef, what do dolphins do?
Shef: Jumping!
Parent: Right! What else?
Shef: Swimming in the water!
Parent: Thaaat's right! And Shef, [here comes the piece de resistance] how do dolphins find things under water?
Shef, proudly: Echo-cation!


Our son, he doesn't have the faintest idea what echolocation is, but man, it makes us happy when he says it.

Hail to the new blog space. it looks nice. you could move all the archives too? that rocks.

i taught r to spell her name when she was super little. she had no idea what she was doing, but she was very willing to go for it.

i should get a special something for being the first commenter, don't you think?
