Is it just me?

Am I the only one who ever gets a call at work in the late afternoon demanding that I settle an argument between a nearly-3-year-old child and a 48-year-old man?

No, I didn't think so.

Now tell me the best way to settle it when the engineer is technically right but the child is demonstrating creativity and conviction in looking at the "facts" in a fresh way.

I have dilemma often. While I tend to fall on the side of the left-brained, linear thinkers, I have to say kids amaze me with their ability to think outside the boundaries we so readily accept.

And no, you're not alone in receiving those phone calls. I get them fairly regularly, which I find pretty amusing to be honest.

I have to admit, I really cracked up when I read this last night.
First thought was, "You go, Rachel!"
She sounds like an amazing little girl, with incredible potential!
I have a daughter like that who's 18 now. She's been a feminist since birth, and she's got great things ahead of her.
