Genetics is a bitch

Don't get me wrong - I adore my daughter and believe with all my being that she is capable of doing anything and everything.  I think that there are just some things, that strangely enough, repeat themsleves throughout the generations.

I tried sports , I sucked at it, but I loved the socialising.  After attending the madam's second soccer game (after doing a soccer workshop as well) I think she is a mamma's girl! Much to my amusement she was much more interested in talking to the boys than chasing the ball....thus the Mr is now taking her to the park for practice sessions.

I think art might be her forte!

One, two...what did you do?

Okay I have tried about fifteen times to write this post.  I know I have a tendencies to over analyse and drrrrrrrrrrawwwwwwww things out so I am trying to make this simple.

How did you, if you did at all, decide how many children to have?  Was it just go with the flow or a process? What was your reasoning? Would you do it differently if you could?

I ask because we have decided to stay with the Madam being an only child.  The Mr doesn't particularly want to increase the number of small people in our house - and I wont do it if I'm the only one that actually wants another one (to messy).


I have had numerous people recently comment on this lifestyle decision of ours - both pro only children and pro more kids so I wondered what you all thought.

* Just for the record if any family/friends from my real world read this - we are not trying for another one nor intending to try - it is just a question*

Revolution required

I found this through Marvellous Kiddo - it is amazing.  Dr Ken Robinson talking about why we need to revolutionise our education systems.  As an out and proud geek - this gave me great food for thought.  He has a few talks so I might post them over the week.

I would love to hear what you all think - what is your approach to education? What is your approach to your kids education?
