He Blinds Me With His Science

This morning, when I dropped Griffin off at Science camp, the camp instructor walked him to the door, saying: Let's skip there! Griffin enthusiastically began his "skip"... a half-run, half-walk with a little bounce of his body at the start of each step. In one hand, he was holding onto his rocket that he bought home from camp yesterday to finish decorating; in the other, his lunch bag containing a snack. His "almost skip" was the best thing I've seen in awhile. I want to sear it in my memory, to call upon it whenever I'm sad or overwhelmed or worried. It was so precious.

The morning started off with a little humor from my little scientist. Griffin: Mom, do you know what Gabby's (the pup) favorite vitamin is? Me: No. What? Griffin: A BITA-min.

Too funny. I'm sure that joke's been told somewhere sometime by somebody, but my amazing little guy had never heard it and thought it up all on his own, while finishing breakfast. I love him with all my heart.

I am so looking forward to some of the things you post about ... and things I have heard Griffin does and says ... I just have to say .. there is NOTHING in this world better than being a MOMMY!

LOL@ BITA-min... what a HOOT ... I've never heard that before .. he really has a GREAT MIND!

Is Izzie getting better when the Nanny comes? I hope she is getting used to it ... I'm sure she was just a little freaked out wondering who the new person was ... where was her MOMMY going ...

I look forward to your next update!
