Yesterday I was doing my physics homework and there was a picture of a ballerina leaping into the air to illustrate center of mass changing. My four year old sister came in and was looking over my shoulder, and she asked me, "Where's the nutcracker?"
I was confused at first, but then when she turned the page to see if he was on the next page I figured out that she was talking about the ballet she'd seen with my dad this Christmas. So I had to explain to her that this was my science book, not a ballet story. She said, "Oh. Well, science is pretty!"
I hope she keeps thinking that!
