        I just talked to them like adults about everything from the stars to politics when they were little babies… in between making funny noises and faces. Never be afraid to be silly. Always let them see you reading and do lots of art with them.
        Mostly, before you pass on your genes, find a woman smarter than you.

          Very Nice… I see we agree on a lot of things. When my son started going to school they would all ask where he heard this word or that and I’d be like, I don’t dumb myself down for him and I explain what the words mean. But then, my son is the best son ever. 😀
