    sad for her frown

    but I had a good giggle - we have had indignation at the same thing!

    We've had a similar moment at a library last week. Suffice to say, we'll be under a self-imposed ban until the librarians and security guard's memory fade a little.

    There were no tears just a lot of whining, but we had this experience too when we bought tickets to the show for children when we had a friend with us.

    When your child begs to go to a show at a live theatre and the tickets are all one price. No different pricing for the child and the people there think it's odd that your child wants to go to a show like this. (No it is not an adult themed show so I don't know what the problem was but we had to pay full price for my 9 year old.)

    When his toy train derails, your DS2 says, "I hypothesize that this tanker car is stuck." DH asks him if he can test his hypothesis, and says yes, then tests the track out and tries alternate ways to get the train moving. Gotta love the scientific method in action.

    When you think nothing of your child waking you up in the middle of the night to tell you random trivial knowledge they just have to let you know right then.

    You think to explain something to DC about a movie or book you are sharing, and DC explains what was really being said, and you realize with the current trend line it is just a matter of time before DC is the one changing your own diapers smile

    When your DD is bummed with the current reading assignment in school because she read it 2 years ago. But is okay watching the movie that goes along with the book because it's a movie day! (And she's seen the movie already as well.)

    when your 5 y/o holds up a partially-chewed grape tomato and exclaims, "this structure reminds me so much of the left ventricle!" [in a heart]

    You decide to homeschool and the principal of your child's school just says, "how great!" (the real story is longer, but that is the jist...lol.)
