See You Monday

The picture above shows the new sign on SteelyKid’s door. She had to ask us how to spell the words– she’s not five for another month, yet– but she is now the proud owner of a hand-lettered “DO NOT ENTER” sign for her bedroom. About half a dozen years earlier than I was hoping for……

Preschool Science

Kate’s off at Wiscon this weekend, so I came down to my parents’ with the kids, rather than be outnumbered at home. We packed everybody into the car Saturday and drove to Ithaca to go to the

Nature or Nurture?

During our weekly trip to the Schenectady Greenmarket, we took refuge from the rain in the Open door bookstore, where a short while later I saw the following scenes at opposite ends of the kids-book aisle (also the “Featured Image” for this post, but I’ll reproduce it to save the RSS folks from having to…

My 20-year college reunion is coming up at the start of next month (at the end of the week of DAMOP in Quebec– I’m going to be completely wiped out…), so I’ve been thinking a bit about nostalgia. A little while back, the subject of reunions came up on an email list, and somebody trotted…

Preschool Science

SteelyKid takes a bunch of enrichment classes at her day care, none of which are explicitly science. I was, however, thrilled to discover that they were doing actual science in her computer class though. The “Featured Image” at the top of this post (sorry, RSS readers, you’ll need to click through) is a cell-phone picture…

Sunday Morning, Chateau Steelypips

The Pip is getting really into books these days, and SteelyKid has been into them for a good while now (she’s four-and-a-half, after all…). At some point last week, she asked about my writing, so I got down a copy of How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog and showed her her name in the…

A Plan and a Story

OK, here’s my idea: We put a leash on Emmy and we put her up on top of this rock that’s on top of all these other rocks. Then she jumps down into these petals. so she’ll be safe. And you pull on the leash so she jumps down a little faster. I’m down here…

OK, Daddy, guess what? Here’s my idea. We get a stick of wood and we put a timer on it, then we get a big rock and put it on the end. We have to put feet on the big rock, so it can stand on the stick. Then when the rain comes down, down,…

Long-Overdue Kid Blogging

WordPress’s upload is broken, so here’s a link to the photo: SteelyKid and The Pip. February was… not a good month, in a lot of ways. Let’s leave it at that. One of the unfortunate consequences of this was that I went just about the entire month without even taking any pictures of the kids,…

Cute Kid Update

It’s been a good while since I did any Cute Kid Blogging, due to excessive busy-ness. There’s big news among the younger residents of Chateau Steelypips, though: SteelyKid lost one of her front teeth the other day: That gap? Wasn’t there on Friday morning. Lest you think we’re horrible people who let her run headfirst…
