Owen and I were reading about space the other night for his bed time story. He was asking about astronauts, space ships and planets. I showed him the diagram of how the planets orbit the sun. He sucked up all the information like a sponge. Hungry for knowledge. You could almost see his brain feeding on it all.
Owen: So the sun stays still and the planets go around it?
Me: Yup. Can you guess how long it takes earth to go around the sun?
Owen: How long?
Me: One whole year.
Owen, his brain chewing on this new information: One year! That means I've been around the sun six times!
I suddenly felt like a big space explorer. I've been around the sun 32 times! He always makes me smile by the way he sees the world.
