One of the things that I have admitted eagerly about fatherhood is the ability that it gives me to unabashedly play with toys again. There’s a quote that I heard once (Turns out its Corinthians 13:11) and if you know whom it should be attributed to(Thanks to NG for the find), let me know, but it goes something like: When I was a child I spoke as a child and played with childish things. When I became a man, I spoke as a man and put away all childish things.
Well, I believe that as a father we can add one more line… When I became a father, I spoke as a father, and brought all the childish things back out of the basement. ðŸ˜‰ In the 26 ish years since I was a started out as a child, the toys have really come a long way. Very few trips to the toy section end without me exlaiming something like “would ya look at the stuff they have these days!”.
a group blog focused on fun science/tech/math/engineering things to do with your kids, ranging from robotics to rocketry. Working motto: “Permission to play with cool toys isn’t the only reason to have kids, but it’s up there.”
Sounds like a lot of fun… I mean it sounds like a very educational avenue to look into for the continuation of our childs education. ðŸ˜‰ The first post over there(minus the initial placeholder) seems to nail down the geekdad motto pretty well…
