I was part of a movement of "dinosaur moms" when I lived in Maryland (Astrodon Johnstoni is the Maryland state dinosaur.) Which is nothing more than this -- dinosaur moms delight in the half-feral nature of the beasties they parent, even as they whisper Shakespeare and Kierkegaard in their ears at night.

Shutupious Curse

Beloved has undertaken the reading of Harry Potter to Girl (mostly) and Jones. So, lately they've been barking orders expectantly at household objects and waiting for their powers to manifest. Jones has invented the "shutupious" curse, which I think quite ingenious, even though I've had to outlaw it. I would give a lot for a shutupious curse.
