My 7 year old has been studying a new chapter in health the past few weeks. He comes home daily with little tidbits of information to share with us. Like the fact that he should brush his teeth after every meal because it's "super important, mom". Now he comes home from school and goes right for the toothbrush because he couldn't brush right after lunch. This is the same kid that if mom tells him to brush his teeth the world is coming to an end. But hey, the boy is brushing 3 times a day without a fight.
A few days ago he came home and told daddy that drinking water is very important and we should drink "6 GALLONS of water per day". WHOA! Daddy just smiled and said "are you sure?" J says, "oh yes dad, 6 glasses just like this one." So then they had a quick lesson in measurements. J realized it was glasses NOT gallons.
I just excited he is paying so much attention in class to share it with us when he gets home.
