(I thought that title would get you!).
This week my son is dissecting an earthworm in science class from it's nervous system right down to it's fallopian tube..Yes, they do have one. Honestly, I never knew an earthworm had SO much in that long, slimy body.
My son and I were up till 10:30ish finishing up his science stuff from drawing diagrams of the nervous system of a worm to looking up on the internet where the heart chamber was connected. After, an afternoon of much homework then a Spring concert, I must be honest that I was zonked (is that a word?)
Around 10:00, my son looks at me and says "Isn't this fun, mom??". My first thought is that I have learned more about an earthworm than I EVER wanted too but then looking in his "excited" eyes---I said "Yes, it's fun with you." This morning, when my son was getting his shoes on for school, he asks if we can look up some more stuff on earthworms. I told him I thought we were done.
He says "We are done but I thought you wanted to know more about them! Maybe we can dissect one tonight together.".
Think of me tonight....
