At Which Point I Know Another Child Has Been Geekified...

When Chris comes home, he plays his podcasts while he cooks; I take Karenna to ballet/tap, apprentice ballet, or modern--depending upon what night it is; and Jude hangs out doing whatever it is Jude does.

Recently, Jude has been doing any of the following:

  • dressing in costume,
  • playing with his stuffed animals,
  • playing DS,
  • playing action figures,
  • playing lightsabers,
  • drawing,
  • writing his letters,
  • usign fridge magnets to try to make words (which often requires our help--"How do you spell 'Spiderman'?"), or
  • any combination of the above.

The other day I found one of Jude's notebooks on the living room floor with some letters on it: "B,A,N,D, and W" in very large print, and on the next line, "I,D,T, and H".  I thought nothing much of it until I set the table the next day with Chris and I turned off his podcast--I cannot handle background noise.  Here's what he said:

So Jude came in while I was cooking and Jude came up to me.  "Daddy," he said, "How do you spell 'Bandwidth'?"

"Where did you hear that word buddy?" I asked him.

He pointed to my iPod.

(It was a TWiT.TV podcast.)
