Heck yes I did a massive victory dance around my boy and made him bow down and worsh-- just kidding but I did have him smiling big in awe of his mother. Which made me think it's a good day when parents can put their kids back in line - show them how it's done.
So I told the story to my mother who was visiting here and no sooner had I finished the story then she told me about HER mother (Grandma Great) who threw down on a 100wpm. 100!! Talk about being set DOWN. I vowed right then and there to beat my 80-something grandmothers' record (life is long...perhaps next years resolution??) She managed to finagle a scholarship with those awesome typing skillz and a wonderful job after high school.
Sometimes however - kids manage to put parents in line.

When the other parents and I first saw this demonstration we just stared blankly for a moment - then both inquired "what's the point"? We were so lost as to how they were teaching about their subject and left the room assured they were going to BOMB.
Fast-forward to the day of the interactive museum. As it turned out the boys had a massive line the ENTIRE time. Non-stop beatings and kids lined up to experience life without joints and tendons. I just sat there stunned. Speechless. Amazed. They actually were extremely successful.
Sometimes kids can show their parents "how it's done"....
