The boys’ room is way down my list of home decorating priorities, but I may have to rethink that.
Me: I just have to get the pillows and hang the pictures.
Peppers: And then you can work on my room?
Me: Well, then I’ll be done with Fluffy’s room.
Peppers: And then you can work on my room, because my room is not cool enough.
Me: I think your room is cool.
Peppers: No. It’s not cool enough.
Me: What if we put in ships and the ocean?
Salty: And mermaids!
Me: Maybe not mermaids. Maybe pirates!
066-419Salty: Awww. But I really love mermaids.
And then later we talked of doing a planet theme. And then one of my four year olds schooled me. Salty knows a shocking amount of stuff about the solar system thanks to screen time.
Me: Which one has 27 moons?
Salty: I don’t know, but Saturn has one moon, and it’s name is called Titan.
Me: uh, I believe that’s Jupiter, but very good.
Salty was totally right on this one. Dang. Are my kids going to know more stuff than me someday? Gah! Well if that means we graduate from Uno to Trivial Pursuit sooner rather than later, so be it. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to bone up on some astronomy if I want to keep any semblance of authority over Saltitude.
And here’s a picture of Salty holding 3d printed chains from Nerds of Tomorrow Day at Lockheed Martin. He’s sporting a comic book themed shirt, and his pants are on inside out, so I like his chances.
