Slow News Day
Not a whole lot to report on the day. We didn't go anywhere. They're doing some work on our building this week, so they've blocked off a ton of parking spaces for equipment and such. Parking, consequently, is going to be kind of a pain this week.
Kind of interesting article from Slate today, about developmental milestones and how in many cases there are cultural differences as far as what kids "are able" to do when. (It includes a link to a photo of an 11 month-old baby using a machete to cut fruit. Yowzers.) The overall conclusion presented by the author, however, is that there is ultimately no such thing as "normal" and that a wide degree of variation is in fact what should be expected. Anyway. Not earth shaking or anything, but an interesting read.
