The Human Head Weighs 8 Lbs!

Remember that line from Jerry McGuire? Totally reminding me of Cole right now. Everyday after school we discuss spiders and all that he is learning about them at preschool. I am seriously impressed with the facts that he spouts off... For example - did you know that wolf spiders have eight eyes? It has a square head with an oval body and stripes on its back. The babies are carried around on their momma's back. They have three sections to their body and the legs come out of the middle section. When the babies get hungry, they have been known to eat each other.

Cole says: Mom! The babies eat each other and they don't even care!
Me: Gross!
Cole says: So I asked the teacher if the mom cares and she ignored me!

I am guessing that this is when the teacher clued in that she was maybe providing a little too much info to my little preschooler. Ha! :)

I am impressed with the info Mister Cole is retaining. He is currently full of random facts about wolf spiders, black widows and tarantulas. If you need to know - just ask. He is fully prepared to give a discourse on his studies... Just ask Mimi and Papa...

Are Lulu and Cole in the same class, lulu goes every morning. She talks non-stop about the wolf spider as well, in fact she had a little melt down about her wolf spider picture, I guess she didn't think it was authentic enough because it didn't really look like a wolf spider. She knows because she and Norah brought their "pet" wolf spider Charlotte to Challenger last year for show and tell. I'm sure their teachers were thrilled. All Brad's idea, not mine.

Challenger is such a diva school. I have yet to learn about wolf spiders and i've graduated college. Mad. When do your little spiders come to visit me? I miss them, and I miss you the mostest. Love you

Steph Jade and I had this same conversation. Not to that intellegence as Cole, but I must say these sweet boys learn a lot. Jade is always excited to show me his pictures. Thanks for being so sweet to him at Western Days. Love you sweetheart.
