Mixed Blessings (or be careful what you wish for)

Good: Eldest Weed takes sudden interest in foreign policy, reading widely.
Less Good: passionate a.m. lecture on Qom nuclear facility before you can drink your coffee and get your head on.

What I know: What a blessing! Praise God he has interests and he talks to you and is not sullen, moody and non-communicative. Most moms of teens would be thrilled to have a conversation beyond grunting. Don't bruise the tender reed!
What I feel at 7:30 am: OMG, stop TALKING.
