As the nerd–off rages on (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here) I turn to the sprogs as evidence of my madly nerdy parenting skillz.
Elder offspring (whose mousing skills my better-half feared might not be on track, developmentally, when elder offspring was about a year old) has joined Game Boy Nation since turning 7. This has led to frequent use of Froogle (to investigate prices of games and platforms), as well as use of Google to locate game “cheats” (whose very existence were revealed to elder offspring via a Google search on the name of the favorite game).
This all was probably inevitable.
But here’s the recent sprog development that has me bursting with nerd pride: Younger offspring worked out the inverse operator for inside-out pajama tops!
“See, you take the inside-out top and put it on. Then you take it off, and look! It’s right-side-out again!”
