    Last week in the bath Nathan (5) insisted that I get in with him. I felt flattered as he usually likes his quiet alone bath time to regroup before bedtime story routine altogether.

    So I complied feeling very smug until he made me sit and stand about 35 times over while he measured the water levels. He was figuring out displacement after reading about it online and in a book he has and I was the test subject as I could clearly displace more water than his little body could.

    Good thing we'd talked about homonyms a few days ago! Cue a discussion about the soul and spiritual healing.

    As a young child, I always wondered why we never went sewing with the priest:

    Priest: May the peace of the Lord be with you all
    Everyone: And I'll sew with you.

    wink

    Adorable lilmissunshine!

    My dad says he always thought, "Herald be thy name" was actually, "Harold be thy name." He said his parents finally caught on one day when they asked him who Jesus' father was, and he said Harold matter-of-factly.

    The book wouldn't happen to be "Mr. Archimedes' Bath", would it? smile

    And then you turn and shake hands and wish them all "pizza, be with you!"

    I don't know what she's been reading.

    Oh maybe this goes along with my DD9 discussing, in her sleep very angrily, "The ice cream is all gone, Johnny ate it all." I still don't know who Johnny is but if our children's minds are linked in their sleep I think we are all in trouble!

    LOL No but that sounds fascinating. It was a book on science something or other - I'm not sure, he doesn't like to show me all his library books as then I ask if I can read with/to him and apparently I read too slowly.
