I could write about kids but that’s so vague I could I could write a book. Or at least a novella. Perhaps the world needs a parenting picture book.
But today is Thursday and I don’t like to break tradition. Neither one of those is a “K” word. Besides, the kids were asking anyway. So today…
is for knowledge. Not just random useless knowledge like
If all the females in a group of clownfish die a male will change its gender in order to keep its group alive.
There are humans that do that, too. But not because they want to save their species.
Nope, this kind of knowledge is about my kids. It comes in the form of an interview – questions and answers.
