    HK - the Brag Thread AKA the Modesty Free Zone exists for just that

    Brag ahead, please...

    madeinuk, HK said the brag would be too identifying. I've had a couple of those moments, actually. Maybe we should have a separate "pm me for my brag" thread, or just a convention on the main brag thread :-)

    Solaris and HK--I'm still giving you moral support for your children's achievements even if they can't be disclosed due to risk of doxxing. Way to go!

    We saw a banner featuring robotics research on the local university campus during a family walk. This caught the eye of DS2.5, who is a robotics enthusiast.

    DS: "Mummy, can I learn to build a robot like that one [on the banner]?"

    Me: "If you go to [university x], you can study to specialize in robotics. But, knowing how Mummy and Daddy operate, we'll probably teach you when you're much younger if you want."

    DS replied, "I'm much younger now! Can you teach me tonight?"

    So we agreed to get started.

    after a grade skip, your child's percentile on standardized tests, goes down from the 99.9 percentile to the 98.9 percentile. Punctuation really messed her up.

    Love that "I'm much younger now!" smile


    Thanks Solaris! He knows how to phrase requests to make them irresistible, that's for sure.

    How about Richard Feynman? Someone already suggested Tesla, or I would recommend him wholeheartedly.
