DONT Teach the Alphabet
When my children were young, I took them to the local Mother’s Competition Group… I mean playgroup, and it was in this ‘nurturing environment’ that many mothers felt their child showed great promise, simply because they could recite the alphabet, more or less, correctly.
Fanboys are a breed unto themselves. And being married to one is often… interesting. I initially thought of writing a piece to make fun of my Fanboy, but then I realised I couldn’t. Not because of any deep seeded loyalty. Please, we’ve been married for over 20 years; it’s trench war far when it comes to who can find the biggest laugh at the other ones’ expense. No, I can’t make fun of him or Star Wars because, to my horror, I have realised I’m a Fangirl!
