Success

Nothing like confirmation that now and then you've done something right as a parent.

This week's moments:

Watching Hogsfather, Child 1 and 3: That prop is incredible! The pace of the movie is kinda slow, but the set design is really good. (mumblings of agreement)

A bit later, Me: So, what did you think of Golden Compass?

Child 1: Well... it was okay. But! The art design was fantastic!

Next day, Child 3 looking over the newly purchased copy of Princess Bride: Hey! Check out this cool font! This cover design is great - look at what they did!

Of course Child 2 was muttering something about nerds and possibly geeks sub voca all week long, but we will corrupt it to our evil ways, oh yes we will...

lol at child two... im afraid i would be with it, although people explaining thier passions to me fascinates me, whether its something i personally understand/am interested in or not...

Which unfortunately is why i have a vast panoply of knowledge of star trek, due to an ex-boyfriend i was with for three months who had a deep abiding love for it...


I think that makes me a nerd/geek too *blush*

child 2 - Don't forget I know have a solid hour of Walking to corrupt you in. You have no hope. Find the Art Nerd within you... go on!

emily - I managed to miss out on star trek but have an extra dose of just about everything else - including a growing knowledge of things Dr Whoish. Mmmmmmmm David Tennant....
