I can't remember exactly what we were talking about. I think it was monsters, probably Godzilla, when it became clear my girls were completely unaware of a plethora of boy-type topics. Disturbed and stressed as to where to begin I rummaged around and pulled out Will and Abe's Guide to the Universe that Pete and I were obsessed with in college. It broaches many more topics than I could ever imagine, providing them with an endless supply of questions to ask.
The comics are really simple—It's pretty much just Matt Groening following around his boys and writing down everything they say. I appreciate this in many more ways now that I have kids.
Godzilla, Mothra, Dracula, ghouls, zombies, slime, voodoo, cyclops, skeletons, ghosts, bugs, horror movies, robots, space ships, aliens, superheros—all these topics can now be discussed and analyzed easily, greatly contributing to their well-rounded education.
In the back there is a handy index, which I had never noticed before. Brilliant!
Happy Father's day to all the dads! We celebrated with challa french toast and some gifts. This is a big week for us—after Father's day we have Summer Solstice, Grammie's b-day, And Liddy's B-day (4!) all in the next 3 days. Add a ballet class and a gymnastics class in there too. Whew! I'm already tired typing it. Liddy has requested a cake that looks like a hamburger, with fries (made of cake) on the side. I will not be attempting this but will enlist the help of a bakery, 'cause come on. I think this is a very wise move. I did sew her a dress which I can't wait to show. And I also bought these striped nail decals. For myself, not for her. But she sure appreciates them. I have them on now and they rock. Hard.
