    I had a mother who read to me
    Sagas of pirates who scoured the sea.
    Cutlasses clenched in their yellow teeth;
    "Blackbirds" stowed in the hold beneath.
    I had a Mother who read me lays
    Of ancient and gallant and golden days;
    Stories of Marmion and Ivanhoe,
    Which every boy has a right to know.
    I had a Mother who read me tales
    Of Gelert the hound of the hills of Wales,
    True to his trust till his tragic death,
    Faithfulness lent with his final breath.
    I had a Mother who read me the things
    That wholesome life to the boy heart brings-
    Stories that stir with an upward touch.
    Oh, that each mother of boys were such!
    You may have tangible wealth untold;
    Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
    Richer than I you can never be --
    I had a Mother who read to me.

    Don't worry about what other people think. They don't do it very often.

    That Today show clip nearly put me in a homicidal rage. If my children EVER behaved anything like that, every single thing they owned that was not school-related would be delivered to the Salvation Army within the hour, and that's being way generous because if I had acted like that at that age they would have never found my body..

    Well, since we're in Canada and the drinking age is 19, I guess it'll be the perfect way to teach her about prime numbers
