Aeronautics According to Nat

Nat: Mom how do airplanes and helicopters fly?

Me: I have no idea. (I mean I really don't. I've tried to understand it but I just don't.)

Nat: I think they have big engines that point down and spread out air really fast and that's how they do it.

Not quite right but I'm pretty impressed that a 5-year-old can come up with this entirely on her own, considering she has a scientifically inept mother. Wow, kids never cease to amaze me.

Children are so smart. Regardless of the credit we generally deny them, they really are brilliant in their own little ways! ;)

Kids are amazing. My standard answer when I really don't have an answer is, "What do you think?" I'm also amazed at what they come up with.

She's one smart cookie. Must take after her mom!
