I received a letter from my kids’ school with a list of suggested activities to combat Summer Learning Loss. Summer Learning Loss? NOT a problem at my house. Summer Mommy Mind Loss – huge problem. That’s what I need to combat. My kids, however, are learning plenty of things.

This year it’s being facilitated by our microwave (As a former engineer I am bound by my lifetime membership in the siblinghood of geekiness to point out that it is not a microwave. It is a microwave oven. It uses invisible microwaves to cook. My children hate when I point this out. I hate when they leave their underwear in the kitchen.
