I took DD8 with me to our local wine store to pick up our monthly wine club selection (I know, I'm a great role model for her!). Anyway, they had one of those 'fast bottle-chilling' machines. The proprieter told DD to put her hand in and said that it's really cold and chills the wine really fast. DD put her hand in and said "it's not as cold as liquid nitrogen, but it's pretty cold". She spent the 15 minutes that we were there finding patterns in the corks, talking about the different countries the wine came from, marveling at the difference in prices, etc. The proprieter was shocked! They say kids remind you to stop and smell the roses-our kids remind us that there's a learning opportunity everywhere!
