The editor's daughter

One of the gimmicks of the Captain Underpants series is that each book contains "comics" sections supposedly created by George and Harold, the 10-year-old heroes. They're written with deliberate misspellings of the type kids might make, and this drives G crazy. ("George and Harold are terrible spellers!" she says every time she reads one.) So right now, she's sitting at the kitchen table, going through The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby with a pen and fixing all the misspelled words she can find.

She's my kid, all right.

I'd be moved to tears to see my child editing. Sniffle, sniffle ....
