This picture perfectly sums up a conversation that I overheard yesterday between Miss A (5) and Miss M (just 3):
Miss A: Poor Pluto. It's a planet! Not a asteroid.
Miss M: Oh. I thought we were going there too.
Miss A: No! It's way up in outer space! There's like lots of planets!
Miss A: Trees can't grow to outer space only rocket ships are fast enough.
Miss M: Cars do that too.
Miss A: No they don't.
Miss M: Some times they do, some times they can't, but sometimes they do.
Miss M: Blue galaxies are just for me. I love blue galaxies. They are sparkly.
Miss A: Mama did you know that Pluto is a sun?
Mama: No it isn't.
Miss A: Oh, it's just a planet.
Miss M: Jupider has suns, but it doesn't have suns, but it does...
Miss M: Outer space lives in Virginia. It doesn't have Floppsies or anything.
(Silence in the car while heavy thinking is going on...)
Miss A: Earthquakes happened in Virginia.
Miss M: Volcanoes live in Virginia.
Miss M: Galaxies turn into Floppsies again. Galaxies have lights and they don't and galaxies have poison and they don't.
