The family that studies calculus together, stays together.

I kind of love this story by Bonnie Miller Rubin of the Chicago Tribune, about moms and daughters attending community college together. (No accident that it is not about fathers and sons, by the way.) Personally I can’t imagine it, maybe because while my mother did go back to school recently, it was to clown college. Seriously.

My favorite is the kicker quote, in which a 19-year-old marvels that her mother “is doing homework all the time—even when it’s not due the next day.”
