Fourth Grade Science and Second Grade Singer

The Boy is learning about water systems in in science (his favorite subject) right now. For the last 48 hours this has been my life:

~While boiling water...

Mom! Do you know what is happening right now? The heat is causing all those water molecules to bounce around. Do you know what happens then the molecules form steam.

~When drinking iced tea...

Mom! Do you see that? Do you know what that is? The ice in your cup is causing condensation on the outside of you cup!

~When filling the dog bowl...

Mom! How much do you think Kona drinks? How much do you think is lost from evaporation?


The Girl is driving everyone crazy because I found a CD I had that was a seasonal sampler of some Broadway shows that a received several years ago (I LOVE musical theater!). I was listening to it and their are several songs from Annie.

The Girl asked if she could borrow and then proceeded to listen, for almost two, to those three songs from Annie, over and over, and over, again. Which makes me have an idea of what my parents went through when I was a kid. Because I did the same exact thing.

Of course, The Boy, when he heard the phrase, "Bet your bottom dollar there be sun." He replied, "Not if those clouds carry precipitation!"

Last night, in my sleep, I was singing "Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love ya! Tomorrow! Your only a...DAYYYYYYYY.. AAAAAA....WAAYYYYYYYYY!!!"

That's funny! The proverbial, "I hope you have one just like you some day!" You know, only a grandma wishes for more noise from kids! (When they don't have to live with it!) ;)
