    I like the Barnes and Noble poem. J and I are both very left brained and have degrees in math based subjects. We’re trying to walk the line between letting the kids be who they want to be and trying to be practical as well. I’m not sure how well I would react if one of them wanted to get a degree in English or Creative Writing. The new Cinderella movie looks great! I’m hoping it lives up to the preview.

      Our daughter is working on a degree in Literature and Writing, but also taking education courses so she can get a teaching certificate. She’s the one who pointed me to that poem – she reblogged it on her Tumblr blog.

      I’m looking forward to the Cinderella movie, too. Good cast, good director – I have hopes! Also looking forward to Into the Woods. . . and of course the third and final Hobbit movie!
