She's a blast, man. Especially now. I just spent the last couple hours on the phone with her and the majority of the conversation was her asking me about horror movies. We went through detailed breakdowns of every Scream and Resident Evil movie, plus in-depth Q&A about AMC's The Walking Dead, plus comic book movies, and about a dozen other things movie- and video game-related. My kid rocks, man. Plain and simple.
And I'm especially proud of her as an artist. She's been asked to draw front and back covers for her sixth grade yearbook. Which is awesome, because when I was her age I was asked to paint a store window for Halloween (a pic of me in the process even made it into the local paper at the time ) so for me, it's a blessing; to know we have so much in common despite me not even having laid eyes on her in the flesh since she was 7 months old (she'll be 12 this July). It amazes me.
Yeah. She's awesome!
