We have a bright son. At almost three he teaches us daily. Here is the latest lesson:
While kneeling down for prayer last night we here the saw the crack of lightning followed by the boom of thunder and the following conversation ensued:
Parker: Ooooh. That's thunder and lightning! I want to see thunder!
Mom: Parker, you can't see thunder. You only here it.
Parker: No. I want to see thunder.
Mom: You can't see thunder, you can only hear it.
(more thunder and lightning)
Parker: I want to see it.
(after giving in to his demands)
Parker: (after seeing lightning) See, it's "Lightning Mcqeen!" (after thunder) "and Mater too!"
Dad: See mom, you can see thunder and "Lightning McQeen too!"
Mom: (always the teacher) Parker, do you know why he is called Lightning McQueen?"
Parker: (No response, too busy watching "Lightning McQueen and Thunder")
