In a Galaxy Far, Far Away…

Monday, May 12th, 2014

My 5-year-old son is very interested in space, so we read a lot of books on the subject at bedtime. One night, my daughter asked very seriously, “Do you think Neil Armstrong and R2-D2 are friends?”

Science Lesson

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

After noticing the condensation on the tank of the toilet, my daughter yelled out to me in a disgusted voice, “Mom, why is the back of the toilet all wet?” I explained that it was sweating, and that it happens when the bathroom gets warm. After a moment of hesitation, she replied, “Then I think maybe it needs a drink!”

Science Struggle

My daughter and I were trying to finish her science fair project. Her grandmother came over and asked, “How are the mad scientists doing?” My daughter responded, “We’re not mad. We’re just a little bit frustrated.”
