OK, it's official - I told my boss today that Dave and I are for sure going back to school, and I'll be leaving the company in August! Hopefully we'll be able to work out some kind of freelance deal - they were talking about retaining me part-time to do their French translations. Good deal!
In addition, I finished Freakonomics yesterday, and it was a very interesting final chapter about child rearing. Basically, the authors' point was that your child's outcome in life is largely determined before it's even born. Things like parents' I.Q., socioeconomic status, and education are all the highest factors in determining children's future success more than all the Baby Einstein tapes in the world.
Makes you want to kind of chuckle at obsessive parents.
