Raising a geeky kid

Adrian and I are both self-professed geeks! We both love gadgets, science, and technology, although between the two of us, Adrian is definitely more into the theory & processes behind the science and technology, as he’s always been better with numbers!

We have always talked about how much we look forward to raising our children with these same interests and encouraging their love of science as well as their love of the arts. Well, thanks to the Ohdeedoh blog, I’ve found something that merges the two together beautifully… Tiffany Ard’s “Art for nerds & nurseries.” Check out the Nerd ABC Flashcards… so cute!!!

I am always on the lookout for geeky or nerdy kids items. When Adrian and I were up in Boston last month, I saw some really cute, geeky science stories for kids, notably the Sir Cumference series.

This one is Sir Cumference and the Sword in the Cone… but you can also check out The Great Knight of Angleland, The Dragon of Pi, or The Isle of Immeter for other math-related adventures. I’m definitely looking forward to reading these books with Baby Z someday! I hope he’s blessed with better math skills than mine!

Finally for a bit more geekiness… the latest in the Harry Potter saga – JK Rowling is going to be releasing the Tales of Beedle the Bard on December 4th.

You can pre-order your copy on Amazon for less than $8! I’ll definitely be pre-ordering a copy for myself. Though I know my little newborn baby won’t understand the stories, it’ll be fun to share my love of Harry Potter with him!
