So tonight, as I was singing bedtime songs to G-Rex, she showed me a little cup of beads she had accumulated and told me that she had drawn out three in a row - all red!
I couldn't resist.
I told her, "You know, if you take that cup downstairs and say, 'Daddy, will you teach me about probability and statistics?' I bet you'll get to stay up for an extra hour!" I made her practice saying "probability and statistics."
Mr. Geeky McEngineer had to get all involved in a lesson... but managed to pull away so he could play StarCraft with his brother. G-Rex is still up. And probably will be for a few more hours, playing with her cup of beads, surrepticiously watching the Olympics.
