He is curious. Very. Although certainly not on the 'early reader' track yet- his interests seem to lean toward physics, mechanics and problem solving. Upon reaching a small marsh area with a drainage culvert being blocked by a fallen tree he recognized the 'dam' effect. Upon me trying to move the tree- he said "Hey Momma. I think you need some leverage. I'll look for a strong branch."
Umm. Ya. He really said that.
Later he tipped the bike over. (He's too big for it and the trainers don't really do much after a certain point. He's top heavy. Needs a 'roll over warning' on his visor.). He diagnosed the reason like this.. "It tipped over because the pedals were too dense."
I have no idea what that means either. Nor where he came across that word. I'm no physics professor. And I don't remember reading that in any of our Dr. Seuss' or Robert McClosky's lately.
