Just the facts, Mom. What’s it like to raise a Joe Friday

My first real clue that Liam’s left brain might be outpacing his right was a note home from his kindergarten teacher.

Liam’s data-driven penchant persisted, and I found that raising a Joe Friday had challenges beyond simply policing his reading material. Every holiday/birthday became a snipe hunt for a gift he might like.

I did my best to raise my little truth-monger, but most of the time I was flying by the seat of my ill-fitting pants.

Today I am still nudging my Joe Friday into the grey areas.
