Emma's words of wisdom

Emma (age 5 1/2) bought and wrapped her own gift for me with great care.

In addition to the "Congragarashons" she wished me, she composed her own special cheer:  "Go Mom! Stop Mom!"

According to Emma, this means, "Go Mom! Go study! ... "Stop Mom! Come home and play with me!"  (The 'No ... Yes ... Yes ... No' written across the middle mean the same thing: "No, don't study. Yes, study.")

In my commencement speech I talked about the "rhythmic alternation between school and family life."  Emma clearly has a handle on it!
