Geek Parenting

Tonight on the car ride home:
Coryn: Mom, are mermaids real?
Me: I don't know. I've never seen one and I don't know of anyone else who has but I like to think that the sea is so big there could be things in it that no one has seen. Maybe even mermaids.
Coryn: I think they are real. I can't get them out of my mind.
Me: It's okay to imagine that things are real even if you can't see them. That's called wonder. It's what keeps people exploring.
Coryn: There are people who explore the deep. They are deep sea divers!
Me: Yes, that's why the Doctor loves humans, because they are always exploring and are very curious. It's a good thing to be curious. It keeps us learning about our world.
Coryn: We always explore. We never give up. We always win!
Me: Yes, those are very good things.


  1. Hi Heidi! I wanted to let you know that I nominated your blog for a Liebster Blog award! You can read all about it at my blog here:
    I just love reading about all that you are up to with your girls and all of your creative ideas! One day I hope to be a fun geek mom like you! :)

    1. Thank you so much for the nomination! I will check it out and make my post as soon as I can. We've been traveling for the last several weeks, so my blogging has been haphazard at best.

  2. Hi,
    I just finished reading your book: Sir Percival the Overly Ordinary Knight. I didn't know where else I should post a comment...
    I really enjoyed reading your tale and it kept me spellbound throughout the entire adventure. You have a great talent in writing captivating literature! I would love to read your sequel.
    Way to go!
    I have to post this as anonymous as I don't have any of those accounts listed. But I enjoyed reading this book.

    1. Oh, thank you so much! I'm just glad when someone reads it. I have been considering publishing it as an ebook as a package with its sequel. I just need to do some formatting to prepare it, but it seems like every time I get started, something distracting happens.

    2. Well... get around to it! :-D
      I would buy it - I need to get a kindle or something first...
      I definitely would love to read more of your fiction.
