    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?????????

    I love it!!


    (reminds me of when my then-6yo DD attended the practices for a grad student in my group who was preparing for her dissertation talk... she kept asking questions about whether the relationships in figures 'had mechanistic explanations, or were they just correlative at this point...' blush )

    I finally told her that she had to be quiet, but the grad student (who had known her since she was two) just laughed and said "no way-- she's right. I'm glad she said something."

    Still, I learned not to take her into doctoral seminars with me. wink

    My DS8 is wonderful, lets start there. He is also emotional, pig headed and a pain in the butt. You all know what I mean.

    About two weeks ago, he morphed into someone I don't recognize. All of a sudden, his room is clean, he has stopped debating everything and is the posterr child for fabulous!

    This morning, as i'm making the rounds getting everyone dressed, I find DS8 helping DS5 get his shirt on. I finally had to ask "what's going on with you? Where's my son, the cranky one?" He laughed at me and said quite simply "I've decided it's time for me to grow up." With that he turned back to his brother.

    Did they put something in the water or what? I LOVE IT!!!
