Sometimes I wonder why I marry myself to a scientist husband. I don't understand much what he talks about...... physics, light, electricity, wave and etc. I admire women who have artist, designer, architect, photographer husbands...... only name a few. However, I am kind of surprised how much the kids enjoyed the Christmas presents from their father: one disco light ball and one set of walkie-talkie.
The girls jumped up and down when disco ball was spinning with the music, and I had never seen them behaving so high! The girls (7 years and 5 years old ) walked 2.5 km home in a windy and cold day all by them selv armed with the walkie-talkie (real one, for adult use, not toy). They just want show us they are cool kids with the walkie-talkie. Anette did not complain a single word during the trip with her big sister while she usually does with us on trips.
I have to say that I had been too much focused on the aesthetic part of things while neglected the science part, of which children should enjoy more. Science is truly a wonderful part of the children's world. At this point, it is kind of nice to have a scientist husband. I begin to appreciate his knowledge and perspectives. I wanna my children to embrace the whole beautiful world but not only part of it.
