Just because I want to remember the cute things she says...

For some reason, Miss Brielle has recently been waking up with a new burning question on her mind.

First it was, "Mom, who's Pharoah?" I, having had in only one cup of coffee that morning, wasn't prepared for hearing her ask about "Pharaoh", so I didn't understand what she was saying. Finally, in frustration, she said, "You know, the one in Egypt!"

Another day, she asked, "What's a meteor?", and when I asked her where she had heard about a "meteor", she ran and got a book I had read to them a while back. So, much to her curious delight, I reread her the part about a meteor.

Then came the early morning question, "What is Uranus?", to which I gladly grabbed a book about the planets, and then cuddled on the couch with my little inquisitor where we both learned more about this obscure planet.

This morning, she came downstairs and asked as clear as day, "Mom, what is echolocation?" So, I proceeded to describe echolocation using a bat and a mosquito as examples. She, of course, wanted to pretend to be a bat hunting for a mosquito, so at 7:00 a.m. , we were "flying" around our house looking for prey using our echolocation.

This little girl is a homeschool Mom's delight!
