He Says, She Says

Conversations with Colin

Colin: Mom, does your body use magic to turn food into pee and poop?
Me: Uh, no...your body breaks down food into energy and then turns whatever is left over into waste. It is a scientific process. *smiles happily because that sounded good*
Colin: What IS the process? How does it happen?
Me: Well, it's a pretty long process...I couldn't tell you exactly how it happens... *smile falters as Colin yet again stumps me*
Colin: You should go order me a book on that. I'm sure they have them online.

I'm on Amazon as we speak.

Hilarious! Also, Sid the Science Kid has an episode on "poop," but give Colin's nature - I'm not sure it would be scientific enough. Ha!!! What an awesome kid.

April, I am TOTALLY going to see if I can buy a DVD with that episode! Thank you! Colin LOVES Sid, and that show does a surprisingly good job of answering his questions. WAY better than I do. ;-)
