As for the brags, wow, my DD is turning into an incredible writer. However, she is also an insanely ambitious one. She turns a 1-paragraph assignment into a two-page dissertation, and it takes her two hours. Oy.

And DS3 beat me at chess. For real. Now, I suck at chess, for a relatively intelligent adult. BUT. He beat me. The next day, he almost beat me--I was on my toes the whole time.
