House of Geeks

Jay and I have long agreed that we would support Joshua 100% in whatever he decides to do in life. If he wants to be a ballet dancer, we'll be his biggest fans. If he wants to be a preacher, a teacher, a construction worker, or a computer programmer, we'll be his greatest supporters. Our greatest hopes and dreams for him are that he becomes a person of integrity, that he stands up for what he believes in, and that he concerns himself with protecting the dignity of other people. In short, we're far more concerned about who he is than about what he does. If he follows in either of our footsteps or blazes his own trail, that's all up to him.

That said, however, when Jereme sends you this shirt:
you just have to put it on your kid.

Nothing wrong with geeks...but I'm not sure he qualifies as a stereotypical "geek" because he is just so cute!

That is a very wise philosophy of parenting. And take it from one who knows from experience--it can be painful if a parent tries to direct what a child will do with his life!

I like the shirt, too--and the boy!

Hi Judy! Thanks for stopping by!

When we were in high school, my dad gave my sister and I Chemistry t-shirts that we proudly wore for a family picture.

Then a couple of years ago, dad gave me a "Nerd Power" t-shirt, and I wear it a lot. I think it was supposed to be a joke. I wear it for serious.

Please, oh please can I see the chemistry t-shirts?

I'll bet the Thief has a photo on his computer that he could post on *his* blog of himself and his sister (ahem) wearing said Chemistry shirts...
