    My 4yo at breakfast told us he finally knew how Daddy became a Daddy. We waited very anxiously to see how on earth he'd anything about the birds and the bees.

    DS then reports, "Daddy, while you were asleep, Mommy bought you glasses. Then when you woke up, you put them on and you were a Daddy!"

    Whew, our very innocent four-year-old is still blissfully innocent.

    DD5 is getting to know her classmates at her new school. Today, she came home and told me she had to ask one of her new friends for some quiet time since she kept on asking DD one question after another.

    I almost wanted to say karma is a xxxxx but I think she already knew that.

    When DD6 came home from one of her first days in first grade, I asked about some of the kids in her class this year. She said K and Z were in her class again. But this year K isn't running all around and Z isn't pinching her. Then said, "Maybe last year they were just too young to understand what they shouldn't do."

    DS is in a graphic design class and has an assignment to create a font. His is orange, and his potential names (so far) are:

    Orange Fonta
    A Fontwork Orange
    Fonty Python and the Holy Grail

    He also, evidently, created an Adobe Illustrator "bowling game" during free time, in which he drew pins and somehow uses a drawing tool as the bowling ball--he said this was a big hit with his classmates.

    His teacher reports he is "very imaginative, but needs to focus a bit more on his classwork." smirk

    Thank you! I think he's pretty great. The font names gave me a much needed mood boost. smile

    DD6 just ran up to me yelling, "Mommy, I heard the Doppler effect!"

    On a slightly related note: I remember one of our kids, as a preverbal 1.5 yo, sitting on the front steps, very intently clapping or vocalizing (all very short impulse signals), then listening to the sound reflecting off of the house opposite. Good for a solid ten minutes of toddler amusement.

    That's funny, I remember being tickled when my DD (just turned 9 at the time) was watching the opening scene to the 2005 Dr Who series with me and openly wondered whether or not the red and the blue time vortexes that you see the Tardis traversing indicated via the Doppler effect whether the Tardis is traveling to or from you in Time!

    My DS10 is reading a new book and excitedly told me that it is about 80s technology in a post apocalyptic world with blah blahbblah and something else. I am no slouch and was also a big reader at ten but you know nancy drew and wrinkle in time and island ofvthe blue dolphins and little house books and little women. Um in 1970s I don't think I knewvtheword post-apocalyptic.

    Sorry about the typing from my phone.
