Yesterday after Griffin got out of preschool, Darwin wanted to play at the preschool park. This drives Griffin crazy (which, awesome, as I love driving my kids crazy). While Darwin was climbing, sliding and screaming TA-DA, Griffin took it upon himself to settle into a nice patch of dirt.
Random Kid: "Griffin, whatcha doin'?"
Griffin: "I'm making smoke. It's an experiment."
Random Kid: "Cool! I want to help make smoke too!"
Griffin: "Sorry. You can't. It's an experiment. I need a controlled environment."
Random Kid: "I can't help? Why not?"
Griffin: "When you do experiments, your environment needs to be Very Controlled. You can only have one factor being different. Everything else has to stay the same. Since I can't control you, you can't help me with my experiment."
Me: ::blink, blink::
Random Kid: "Oh. Okay."
Griffin: "But we can play Star Wars tomorrow. I get to be Darth Maul."
Random Kid: "Okay! See you tomorrow!"
Obviously, Griffin's watching a wee bit too much of the NASA station to be knowing all this stuff about controlled environments and experiments.
And? Crap. He's going to out-nerd me in no time at the rate he's going.
And it's Friday. Which means time for another Whip it Up...
Something for Aaron. More on that Monday.
I also have another WIP... it's nearly the end of the month. Which, by now, everyone should know what that means.
