Knowledge is Power?

In my grand visions of teaching G-bean to be literate, I dreamed of it being an outlet of expression for her. The gateway to greater knowledge and written worlds. I imagined that her first scribbles of gratitude would go a little something like this...

"Dear Mom...vessel of life...all knowing goddess of the bathrobe (okay so that's a little bit of a stretch),

Thank you for countless hours of patience in teaching me how to read, write and count one fish, two fish. You & Dr. Seuss have changed my life. I promise to use my power for good."

~Love, G-bean

Well, the little dickens went rogue on me and this is what I got...

Mom is talking on the phone for a long time.
I don't know why?

So I ask you, is knowledge really power?
