Life Lessons

Kids learn not only from what you say, but from what you do. This week, Cleo has learned a couple good things. From her father: make regular back-ups of your computer, whether you think you need to or not. This was a boring lesson, consisting mainly of watching him do it. From her mother: use pyrometric cones in every kiln firing, whether you think you need to or not. This was a more exciting lesson, consisting of watching her mother not do it, and then observing the wailing, nashing, and rending that ensued. Live and learn and be like your dad, sweetheart.

Do you have a kiln at home?

No, I've been taking her to the studio once a week or so. She naps in the sling, and I can do some of the less-messy tasks. I'm not sure how I'll do it when she's too big to nap like that...
