Even after I googled it, I did not recognize "Q". Now, if you were alluding to Q in James Bond movies, I'd know. Used to love all those gadgets as a kid.)

Oh my!
You should have seen the tantrum DS had when he finally learned to ride a 2 wheeled bike! Totally melt down, and "I've wasted so many years by not learning sooner. The fun I could have been having."

It is odd to be hearing that out of a child's mouth. But these children ARE like this and deserve respect. I just have to roll my eyes at the "Tell him it's Fun" part, and I've been there many, many, many times. Sad to say. It is really beyond my understanding.
