Living here

I think living here in this particular corner of New Mexico, with its emphasis on science and all that, is starting to rub off on my family. Consider the conversation I had with Miss Lucy yesterday:

Lucy: "Mom, how does the baby grow bigger?"
Me: "Well, he gets some of the healthy food Mommy eats and uses it to grow."
Lucy: "So when we eat healthy food we grow bigger?"
Me: (momentarily distracted and thus not responding ...)
Lucy: "Mom? Did I make a good hypothesis?"
Me: " ... Um, yes. Yes you did."

Her Dad was so proud.
