I took DD8 to school with me today because her teachers had a work day. I was teaching my honors physics class about light and it's properties and was asking a problem about microwaves(also a type of light wave even though we can't see it). Before I could finish my question DD raised her hand and asked "Mommy, are you talking about the microwaves in the ovens or the ones that are in outer space?" When I said they are the same kind of wave, her reply, "oh, that's right, I forgot" sent my class into spasms because they are still having difficulty accepting that. She then continued to participate in class as if it were her own!

Now, why is it we have her in third grade?????????
