You know how it's cool when your kids are little and they ask highly intelligent questions and you have no idea what the answer is but you can make up an answer that makes you sound smart? My kids are like, "Mom, you are so smart! How do you know so much?"
You see, I just make up answers and these words come flying out of my mouth like I'm possessed by a genius.
Some of the more recent genius imparted upon my children includes:
Mom, how does a light switch make the light shine?
(Time to pull all the electricity buzzwords that I can manage)
Well, the switch acts as a adapter and it tells the fuse to ignite the electrical circuit and force the light to shine.
Oh, ok, thanks mom!
My poor kids. I'm so scared for the day that they realize that I no idea what I'm talking about most of the time. But for now, I'll relish being their hero who knows everything.
