The Care and Feeding of Elayna

A letter to my parents... yendi, I know this isn't everything. Tell me what I'm forgetting!

Food: She has the same basic food obsessions... but now she also likes Quaker Chewy granola bars in oatmeal raisin. And she likes to make brownies from the boxed mixes - they don't require milk. At restaurants, she's interested in vegan desserts.

TV: Half an hour a day on weekdays, an hour a day on weekends. She can earn an additional half hour for every half hour she reads.

Movies: I don't think there's anything coming out that I specifically *don't* want her to see.

Books: She's almost at a high school reading level, but I'd limit her to middle-school-style books. The only barrier is content.

If I can find her Latin book, I'll send it; please remind her that it exists. She loves it when she has it, but it's out of sight, out of mind. If she finishes it, let me know and I'll get her the sequel.

Her current obsession is neurology, due to my seizures. See if you can get her library books about the brain. Dad, if you can tell her anything, that'd be great. She's also just interested in the human body in general. (She hasn't had the birds & bees talk yet.) If she expresses any kind of scientific or research interest, please encourage that!

Music: Try to expose her to new stuff! She loves Harry Belafonte, Dad.

Math: She's way into division. If I can get to the school supply store, I'll get her a book of worksheets.
