Brad and I tease each other over our various obsessions. Mine tend to be artsy-craftsy, Brad's are more nerdy-geeky... it's all in good fun, of course, our way of appreciating each other. Our kids tend to have a bit of both of these traits, with Honor leaning more towards the creative, and Brian towards the scientific, proof of which Brian brought home in his homework the other day. He got an 'x' on one of his math problems. He'd answered it with a "?" and that, obviously, was not good enough. It was a word problem: (something along the lines of) "If a box with 3 crayons weighs 60gr, how much does each crayon weigh?" Brian wasn't sure how to answer it without knowing how much the box weighed.
Think he has a future in engineering? Law?
