Without a doubt, Dalen is a NERD and
without a doubt, I absolutely LOVE IT!
Some kids want to play football and mine would rather open the ribcage and disect an alien, search through it's slime covered body parts, staple it back together and monitor the growth of his brain each morning for the next 2 weeks!
Some kids want to learn how to play baseball, mine would rather make candy snot and ear wax and inject it into a fake ear and nostril....in anticipation of tasting it before and after it goes in the ear/nostril to see if the taste changes!
Some kids want to play basketball after school; mine would rather become a 'Certified BathTime Color Scientist'!
I will support him in whatever he chooses but I am really loving the Nerd phase! This kid is AWESOME!
