And my five year old says . . .

At dinner my 5 year old (six next month!) asks how a telephone works. I passed that one to daddy for an explanation. He gives here a very detailed and scientific explanation. She laps it up!

He ends by saying, "So when Nana calls, her voice travels in tiny bits of info super fast over the phone lines and then they all come together on your phone and you can hear what she says."

I add, "Yup, and they travel that fast over thousands of miles. Cool huh?"

She says, "Man, Nana's voice must be really tired."

that's too cute--and what a great explanation, I can't believe she could repeat all that!

Ha! Too cute! I love when they have something so cute to add! :)

When we were house shopping, Linus asked our realtor what a square foot is. I don't think I thought in terms of square feet nor how a telephone works when I was five! Or six. Or ten!
