Do you share this with Scout?

At eight, I don't reckon she's interested in such essays. But I do write it with a notion that someday I'll be able to say, "Look at this, fool. I wrote this when you were eight years old!"

Rather than shorten the mantra, you should add to it, "... without my help."

Well done, BB. Thanks.

I once heard a story of parents who bubblerapped a hotelroom because their son would otherwise maybe hurt himself!

Well said David, as a mother of two, I hear you!

Wait, Annelies. You don't bubble wrap your hotel rooms? What kind of a mother are you?
