Conversation of the Week

When I asked my four year old son what he learned at school (daycare) today, he said they were learning about water.

"Hey Dad, do you know what water's made out of?"

(Me, thinking, "well, I know what it's made out of but I can't possibly imagine what you're about to tell me.") "No buddy. What?"

"Um, two H's and an O."

(Me, thinking, "I can't believe you just said that; there's no way he knows what that means.") "Huh!"

10 second pause

"Yep. Two Hydrogens and an Oxygen."

(Me, thinking, "I cannot believe you just said that! Unbelievable!") "Wow! That is really interesting!"

"Yeah Dad."

(Me, thinking, "wonder if I should get him started on 'Six Easy Pieces'...")
