Driving while parenting, Episode V

Mommyo, irritably, after being forced to yield inappropriately to a driver who clearly doesn’t understand the concept of right of way: “Really? You’re going to turn into the street now? Awesome decision, dude.”

The Six-Year-Old, suspiciously: “Are you being sarcastic?”

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    Here in Las Vegas we have some of the worse drivers. I NEVER take it personally yet others in the family always seem to. Baby picks that up. He wonders why I don’t. I tell him there’s absolutely NOTHING you can do about it anyway, so why get all worked up about it? Case closed.
