I'm pleased that my children are becoming interesting people.
Banana reads the newspaper from time to time and McMonk is becoming aware of geopolitical zones and leadership issues in them. They are starting to interpret lyrics from songs and we discuss them as or after they play on the radio when we drive. Both are fully aware of what is appropriate and inappropriate language in movies. We even watched a crappy movie last night that was full of swearing - neither of the kids seemed put off by this and they started a discussion about the courseness of the language after the show. "We've heard lots worse on the playground," Banana remarked.
Due to this nagging cold I've been trying to shake, this week I haven't had as much energy to spend on my wife and kids as they deserve. Finally, tonight, I felt like we had a good evening together.
