Damn, they're cute.

I made your husband bug-eyed this morning. He was looking at Allison's "Pretty, Pretty Princess" game with horror. I promptly told him that it will be sent to Germany in about 2 years. :-D

You know my opinion of religion in general, and orthodoxy in religion in particular. I can figure our morals on my own, thankyouverymuch.

However, I believe that children are a weird combination of blank slate and pure savages and that they need to be taught to behave appropriately, kindly, morally, whatever. Perhaps I read too much Heinlein as a kid, but I believe that it is my job to do that, not some religious leader. That is not to say that I wouldn't take guidance from certain religious principles. The seven UU principles seem to me to be very useful and good to teach.

And you have clearly done an excellent job, taming the savage and filling the blank slate. Now I have something to live up to, lazy wench that I am.

"figure out morals", not "figure our morals". Grrr.
