We've created a monster. My 13 year old boy (otherwise known as Oatmeal Head) has been introduced to the TED talks, a series of scientific videos that are fascinating. I got up this morning (very late, having gone to bed at 4 am, darn that Pioneer Woman!), and the first thing he wants to talk about is the TED talks and our military. What the heck?!?
I think he started with this one, not related to the military:
My boy has always wanted to be a scientist and inventor, almost as much as he wants to climb mountains and tall trees. But we aren't really the scientific type. So here's to progress, Oatmeal Head's future and a new year! And TED. And a year of dangerous things. I suppose he'll be learning to drive soon. *sigh*
Until I write again ...
