well, consider me a new fan of Jason Sklar! i've heard about the Sklar bros, but have never really actually heard them (maybe has something to do with having a couple of kids and work occupying much of my time and limiting my podcast listening!). his son sounds a lot like my older son, and i think the "talkabouts" is very cute, and actually a great idea for bedtime. i'm all for anything that involves them and gives them a goal to reach before bed.
i also wanted to weigh in on the college debate. i remember when Jeff said in an early episode that he is pretty much against the idea of Arden (did i spell that right?) going to college, so his bias was fairly clear here. i'm pretty much in the middle, and thought Jason had some excellent points. in my career, i haven't really made full use of my university degree, but i value the experience i had over those 4 years. i do somewhat regret not living on campus and fully experiencing that life, but that wasn't that big a deal for me.
the last thing i wanted to mention was how it really hit home with me when you guys were discussing how you wonder what kind of person your child will be...i think about that a lot, and it's thrilling and scary at the same time!
great, great episode!
