Tonight I’ve been teaching my son how to operate a metal lathe. Awesome. He’s got a healthy respect for the machine and is doing a good job of understanding how all the gears and levers work together to make the cuts you want to make. This is one of my favorite parts of being a dad.
Dan: “Gavin, here’s a picture of your new babysitter.”
Naomi: “Ooh, I saw your eyebrows raise. You like her?”
Gavin: “I’m just thinking how I’m going to mutate her.”
Naomi: “I think you mean ‘manipulate.’”
Gavin has very strong opinions about Home Depot vs Lowe’s, and they’re based mostly on the quality and comfort of the shopping carts he sits in when we go there.
Gavin and I are always talking about math and astronomy and all sorts of stuff. This morning I helped him calculate in his head how many minutes there are in a day, and how many seconds in an hour, and he came up with the right answers. That’s pretty advanced for a second grader.
Today is the day Gavin reaches the part in Final Fantasy 7 where Sephiroth kills Aeris. Here we go.
