My future genius

Ok, as a former Bio teacher and a lover of all things science, when my seven yr old makes connections that some of my high schoolers couldn't heart races and my momma sense soars!

Hotrod, Princess and I are beginning our study of nutrition. As we were reviewing atoms and molecules, I was showing Hotrod how to write chemical formulas. In the picture, you can see where I wrote the formulas for water and hydrogen peroxide at the top of the board.

I got up to chase Little Man and when I got back Hotrod had written out the chemical equation for hydrogen peroxide.....I never taught him that. Never mentioned it. It just made logical sense in his!

It was a moment that gave me momma shivers!

You can see in the picture, at the bottom of the board, that he has drawn a pic of water on the left and a pic of hydrogen peroxide on the right. He then wrote out the equation. (Yes, that is a two on the far right, not a three.) 
Proud momma here!

I just Couldn't Help Myself

Ok. I have been told, by my closest friends, that you know that I am a type A within five minutes of meeting me. I am not quite sure what vibe I give off, but I know it is there. I don't know how to turn it off. 
Just recently, our lovely First Lady came to our Library for various reasons. My children had the privilege of spending some quality time with her. Together, they were trying to figure out a brand new, children's computer. They were having some trouble.

Watch my reaction.....

Calm, proud mom.....watching.....waiting....

.....oh dear....they can't figure it out....should I?....

I couldn't stand it any longer. I had to tell them how to do it. Yes, I was giving direction to our wonderful First Lady. 

I just couldn't help myself....:)
