What a wonderful phrase…

Timon and Pumbaa teach Simba to live in the present ("hakuna matata") in The Lion King.

Timon and Pumbaa teach Simba to live in the present (“hakuna matata”) in The Lion King.

After listening to The Six-Year-Old sing “Hakuna Matata” repetitively for ten minutes behind a closed bathroom door, Mommyo, curiously: “Hey, kiddo. How’s it going in there?”

The Six-Year-Old: “I’m singing and rocking out.”

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.

    Sorry, I appreciate she rocks out but I hate that saying almost as much as I hate that Police album title, Zonyatta Mondatta or whatever it is….
