I love this. Not for the dog, of course. But it just shows that you guys talk to him at his level, but in such a way that allows him to grasp difficult concepts like motion…i have always talked to my kids that way, too. I think we have such a tendency to assume that Because they’re little, they only understand little things:

The car goes fast.

See spot run!

Oh, no!

Spot did not see the car.

Oh, no!

The car did not see Spot.

And so on. But they are capable of so much more.

Not that I think parents should be overly concerned about packing them full of higher order information before they start school…but if a child shows a significant interest in something, I say let them gather all the intel they can about it.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
