Last night as we drove home he was explaining the digestive system to me, as he understood it. I'll spare you the gory details, but suffice it to say, he has the general gist of it. He finished the dissertation with "Right, Mom?" I replied with a chuckle and "Something like that...". He then said, "Well, at least, that's my hypothesis." It was nearly all I could do not to all-out laugh, but he was being so serious! As we were nearing home, he proceeded to tell me about how he figured by now dad and the boys were probably done with baseball and would be arriving home soon as well. We soon pulled in the driveway to find Todd and the boys were, in fact, already there. He shouted with delight... "Look mom, they ARE home...my hypothesis was right!"
So, apparently this is our word for the week.
