Home Spun comic strip #460

It's interesting when you suddenly realize that your child is teaching you. This happened early for me. What can I say? Marina is a voracious reader and lover of history. She tells me so many stories and facts that the slightest comment from me sets off a chain of memories. I'm suddenly treated to the intimate details of the life of Elizabeth I, Akhenaten's push for monotheism, or the properties of the element Polonium. I live an interesting life.

Yes! It's wonderful that they can teach/re-teach me so many interesting things... especially since I can't seem to rememeber anything! ;) Have a great week!

I had this same experience a few weeks ago, watching an IMax movie about space, narrated by Morgan Freeman. Each time some new picture came up, my nine-year-old said, 'oh, that's a supernova!' or 'oh, that's this galaxy/planet/star system' - and then Morgan Freeman would say the same thing. It was very cool. My boy sure knows a lot more about space than I do!

Way to go, Marina! Love, Grandma

So many times I think I'm going to blow ds1 away with some really cool information or fact and I get "Oh, I already knew that." (because he had read it elsewhere). LOL Very cute strip!
