The Things I Learn From my Kids

Zachary: I'll turn on Jacob's nightlight by this switch.

Me: Well, look at that. It's magic.

Zachary: No, Mama, it isn't magic. There are wires that run through the walls from this switch to Jacob's outlet and electricity runs along those wires.

Jacob: My paper airplane has too much lift and not enough drag. That's why it flies so well.

Me: Where did you learn about lift and drag?

Jacob: The Wright Brother's museum video from vacation. Didn't you see it?

Simeon: You're eating Campbell's Soup. That's good.

Me: Why is that good?

Simeon: Well, for one thing, their stock rose on Wall Street today.
