This is one of the things that I love about living in this country (truth be told, with the exception of candy and margarine, I pretty much always love living in this country):
I think it’s just something fun for the baby book. All three boys have a card, and they’re all different. So far, all the cards have been from the President Bush, but unless a new baby comes along a lot sooner than planned, the next card will come from someone new. I’m sure they do this in Canada too, but I just love this taxpayer perk!
They are extremely nerdy, so naturally I thought the engineer would love them. He went through all the letters until he came to K, Kepler’s 3rd Law. Shall I tell you what happened when he saw this card:
He says, “I don’t think that whole equation is Kepler. I think it was Newton. Let me go check my Physics book.” That’s right people he keeps a college Physics text book on the bedside table for random nerdy questions that come to him in the middle of the night! Sure enough, he is right. Kepler started the equation, but Newton developed it. At least I think that’s right, because I stopped listening to him when he said “Kepler!” So, there you go, Kepler has a 3rd Law, but the card is actually more than the 3rd Law. Holy Cow, I’m boring myself! Anyway, I ask the engineer if he wants me to write the creator of the cards, but he doesn’t want to rub it in her face! Who knew that my husband was too geeky for the Nerdy Alphabet Cards. Hopefully this won’t hinder the children’s intellectual growth!
