Wow! It is good to be back! I have been without internet for a few weeks, but that is a story for another day, and I am finally back in business! I have missed all of you and I have so much catching up to do!!
I have a million posts, yes literally one million, running through my head, but today I just have to share the dialogue of this "philosophical" conversation I had with Charming Child yesterday. Before I get into the conversation, let me give you a bit of background information . . . Charming Child has a boy in her Fourth grade class who, to put it lightly, has an odd imagination and personality . . . as his art teacher I often have to ask him to ease up a bit on the graphic violence he depicts in his artwork. I mean, seriously, the assignment was to use a ruler to draw a train . . .not, use a ruler to draw a train that is running over someone!! Anyway, I digress . . . This young man, N.K., is also extremely gifted and bright, I mean really smart. N.K. has a young mother, I believe she had him when she was 14, or maybe 15 . . . so, here is our conversation . . .
CC: Hey, you know how N.K. is really smart? And, you know how Rory (from Gilmore Girls) just graduated from Yale, the Ivy "Link" college?
CC: Well, you know N.K.'s mom had him when she was in high school, and Rory's mom had her when she was in high school too.
CC: So, I was thinking that maybe they are so smart because when their mom's were pregnant they had to go to school everyday and so they were already learning before they were born.
