Why Men Shouldn’t Wait To Have Babies - Discovery News
Took Adam to Chabot today.
Perfect for him since he’s been interested in “outer space,” especially “the crab nebula!!!!”
He had fun and even did part of a planetarium show. We did “Astronaut” which is scary as it is. We waited for the really scary part at the beginning and he liked the bits in space and training.
I need to remember these sometimes.

Excellent advice, all of it.
Bonnie: Are you BRAVE like Merida?
Happy Hollow over the weekend.
So nervous he was going to be scared and cry like last time.
He did great.
He’s tall enough to ride the roller coaster, but that was too scary for him. He’s so much like me.
Stunning coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an eight week old human foetus. The foetus’ eye, nose and hands are visible. The eighth week of pregnancy represents the end of the formative developmental stage, and the embryo becomes a foetus. It is human-like in appearance, with the head large in proportion to the body. All major organ systems are formed by the eighth week, but require much growth since the foetus is only about 3 centimetres in crown-rump length.

Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes.
Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science.
There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: “I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.
I like how Adam has no issues going for the high notes when he sings in front of us.
