Here was the conversation I had with Hotrod this afternoon...
Hotrod: "mommy, how long have I been alive on this earth?"
ummm...I wonder what is coming?
Mommy: "five and a half years"
Hotrod: "Was I a baby?"
Hotrod: "Do I have baby pictures?"
Hotrod: "Are they in a baby book?"
now is not the time to start explaining my failures as a parent to him...
Mommy: "ummmm....they are on the computer!"
Hotrod: "can I see them?
Hotrod: "was I born with eyes??"
Mommy: " of course, you were born with eyes! all babies are born with eyes!"
Hotrod: "No they are not! Marsupial babies aren't born with eyes!"
....here is where I just stared at him....and stared...I just got checked by a five yr old using the word "marsupial".
Mommy: "Actually, they do have eyes, but they are not developed yet."
I am raising a geek...a nerd...a very cute little nerd! :)
