Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Kids These Days

Today we took the Things to look at a potential school for Thing One.  It's a really cool Montessori farm school.  He got to play with a kid goat named Cinnamon whom he immediately fell in love with as he's wont to do.  Then we inaugurated the Christmas kayak with a paddle on Bantam Lake, followed by a nice Cinco de Mayo meal at the only decent Mexican restaurant in the area.

We pretty much tailored our day around our kids.

"Did you have a good day?'

"I dunno."

You basically give up any idea of having a life of your own when you have kids.  And you have to wait until they have their own kids before they can appreciate it.

So, anyway.  Thanks Mom and Dad.
