BREAKING NEWS: Alexandra signs her letter of intent

In a surprise move today, Alexandra Glotzbach, the 2 foot 10 inch, 31 lb. San Francisco native declared her early intent on a college. Although she hasn't decided on a major, or even really given any thought to what sports she might compete in, she has expressed unquestionable intent to attend Cornell University. Said the 21 month old, "this one... daddy's", leaving 2nd rate Stanford in the dust.

When asked about her decision, the parents feelings were mixed. "I'm very happy with the decision, and think that its a wise choice," said her father. "I thought my child would be smart enough to pick sunny Palo Alto over snowy Ithaca. And what about sports? Does Cornell even have varsity athletics?" said her mother. Although both schools are a fine choice, the parents will continue to investigate state school options, thereby making their large state tax payments worth something.

Too funny! ...and cute.

Madeleine (8) recently announced that she wants to save $2000 this year! We tried not to laugh, and worked out a plan for her to sell glow-stick necklaces at some evening events in a nearby park.

Later, Jen asked her WHY she wanted $2000, and Madeleine recounted a conversation she heard me having with my cousin about his student loans. Her plan (as only a second grader) is to save enough for college that she won't need loans! Is that great, or what? :-)

this is too cute! i wonder if mom might have a second chance if she asked again, putting stanford on the right this time. we used our first born as the magic eight ball for all kinds of questions, and whatever was on the right (or was the last choice offered) usually was the winner.

good luck with that one...
