I can't count the number of times I've answered questions or solved bug by trying to explain it to my wife, who is not an engineer. Breaking your problem or question down so someone who has no or extremely limited domain knowledge works wonders. And you don't look as crazy as you do talking to a duck. The added bonus is that my wife now has a passing knowledge of all kinds of software-related topics. :)

Totally sums up how I feel about being a father. It's especially interesting watching from an engineer's standpoint as my son learns how to do new things. Also, congrats and good luck with the twins. :)
