We knew it was coming.
We just didn’t know when.
And to be honest it’s almost completely our fault. We’ve set a terrible example by how we act and what we talk about in front of our children.
Well, that and genetics.
See, my wife and I, we… Well… We found out that my oldest son is a full fledge geekling.
We were hoping it would stay at the level where he was just a little spazzy and really, really enthusiastic about math and video games… and some comics… and Star Wars… and sometimes he quotes Doctor Who…, but we got the results of a school administered eye exam this week and it appears he’s getting glasses for his eighth birthday. Possibly thick ones.
He also recently started needing an inhaler because of allergy induced asthma.
And he seems to be really bad at sports. But that’s not a big surprise because he’s very small for his age and kind of uncoordinated…
Man am I glad geek culture is cool now.
