bmoore4, I really relate to your post. Our DCs would have one rousing play date!

We were at the playground when DS3 spotted a rock structure with fossils (all man-made, but nice for the kiddos). My DS3 pointed to the fossil and said to his park friend, "See that ammonite fossil. That means this park used to be underwater!" The other boy said "Huh? and ran off.

Yesterday, we played his newest game, atom. He put the quilt in the middle of the bed, and said that was the nucleus, and he was the proton and I was the neutron. I can't remember if this was before or after he created his "mega-heater-keeper-outer" outfit for our journey to the earth's core.

On our coffee table sits a half finished drawing of the circulatory system.
