Kid fears

What a lovely world it would be if your children only ever inherited your good points. Every generation improving on the last.

There’s not much I can do about genetics, but here is my Henricus wish list for today:

That he hears ‘mental maths test’ and is pleasantly excited.

That he can eat a tomato without feeling like all the wrongness in the world has converged on his tongue.

That he’s not afraid to dive into a swimming pool.

That he never in his life has the indignity of publicly running from a pigeon.

No joy with the tomato thing, yet.

Suppose I’ll keep working on it.
