A breakfast lesson in lactodynamics

Julia: It's hard to push all the Cheerios to one side. The other ones keep coming around.

Me: That's because when you push the milk away with the spoon, the other milk comes around the side to fill in the space. You can't make a hole in milk. And the Cheerios get pulled along with it.

Julia: [Immediately starts pushing Cheerios carefully along the surface of the milk instead.]


Now that is a child who gets physical concepts. You should see the stuff she builds out of cereal boxes and masking tape.

Julia reminds me of the younger of HPR's two sisters (currently age 14). She used to take things apart to see how they worked, and if they were broken, fix them. Her latest obsession, however, is jazz singing.

It's the smart ones we gotta watch out for. ;)

Hmmm. Maybe there IS something to the gene theory. Except that with me it was the the white cardboard inserts that came back from the laundry with my dad's shirts. (This was the late 1940's.)

So, how about showing us some of the stuff she builds out of cereal boxes and masking tape?
