We try to instill nerd pride in our house. That means being proud of yourself because you are a smarty. Alex is trying to figure out if he is a nerd or a geek (don't know where he heard that word). I voted nerd, especially when I found out that geeks used to be men in side shows who bit the head off of live chicken (YUCK!!). I didn't share that info with him and he is still debating with himself.
