One down, 22 to go

Assuming that he goes on to get a PhD in the family tradition (every family has traditions--ours are just dorkier and more desperate than those of normal families), Kid now has only 22 more years of education to complete, having graduated from kindergarten yesterday. We're just about free and clear!

He's clearly treating this occasion with all the solemnity it deserves.


  1. Is that the man with the boy? They are both cute.

  2. Tracy: Oh, I think men are wonderful.
    Liz Imbrie: The little dears.

    --The Philadelphia Story (1940)

  3. Excellent quote, darling. I like to quote Clare Boothe Luce: "A man's home may seem to be his castle on the outside; inside, it is more often his nursery."

    And when I've really had it: "They are vulgar and dirty-minded and alien to grace, and I would not, if I could, which I hasten to say I cannot, cross their obscenities with a wit which is foreign to them and gild their futilities with the glamour which by birth and breeding and performance they do not possess."

    Sigh..."the little dears."
