The serious business of laughter

My son laughs at the slapstick pratfalls on a television show. He laughs at the goofy knock-knock jokes that I tell him. And he is super ticklish.

Blinding them with science

One day far into the future, when my son accepts his Nobel Prize in chemistry, I fully expect him to thank his Mom for doing all those "way cool" egg experiments with him on that one rainy Saturday afternoon. "Because of her," he will say, "I learned to look at the world as a place filled with answers. You just have to know the right questions to ask." And I will tear up, and it will be lovely. (Trust me.)…

Slime Time!

Glue

 

Pour the 1/2 cup of warm water into the glue. You can use less. This is where it gets fun to play around with the amounts and how it changes the consistency. Keep the conversation, and laughs going with the kids.

Once the water is in, you can now add the Borax solution. You can see in the picture below, it immediately starts blobbing. Colin was not all for putting his hands in…

Please Brand Me Now!!!

Branding.

Argh.  Sooo challenging...and so permanent.  It needs to be just right.

Identifying your "brand" is kind of like going to college, where the goal is trying to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life.  But at eighteen, who really knows THAT?

You have to pick a major but what are the odds that in a few years you'll even be interested in pursuing a career in the field?  Your scope of interests expands, you identify and refine your skill sets, you…

Do you parent from nature or nurture?

My father used to rock me to sleep; my mother used to sing with me. These are things that I do with my son because I have such fond members of them from my childhood. But those are things I know I learned from my parents.…

Women are smart: We need more of them as scientists

I'm getting my niece a chemistry set. 

Well, not now. She's still little. But when she is old enough, I plan on getting her a chemistry set and then help her create small explosions. (I have a feeling we'll be doing this at my house and not at my brother's.)

Edu Science 450x Starter Microscope Review

I had a coupon and the "birthday bucks" from ToysRUs, so instead of letting it go to waste as I sometimes do, I decided to make a quick detour to ToysRUs yesterday. I was kids free for a couple of hours, so there was no one there to tug on my clothes and whine that they're tired of hungry or "want to go hommmmmmmeeeeee". My "quick stop" ended up being more like 45 minutes.…
