I was given the nickname of MacGyver about 10 years ago. This was due to my knowledge of seemingly random information. Information that I am able to use to to solve problems. I have been asked many times how is it that I “know all this stuff?” I usually answer, “I read.”
The honest answer is, I don’t like not knowing. If I am curious or I have a question, I learn what I can about it. We watch two, maybe three shows a season with a few movies mixed in their. The rest of the time we spend reading or watching informational videos.
I hope we can pass on this preference of constant learning to the kiddo. So far he prefers educational videos or the company of a good book. Let’s hope it stays that way.
