Big words from little kids.

While I had fun teaching the kids the word bioluminescence a few weeks ago just because I think it's cute and funny when little kids use big words, I didn't purposely teach my three-year-old daughter the word solace recently. She did, however, casually (and correctly) drop it in a sentence today at the pool. Her mom and I are big readers, so I guess she got it from one of us. What really got me is that I didn't quite understand what she said at first and asked her to repeat it. She did just that, and followed up with its proper definition.

Yikes!

Your kids sound intimidating! But in an awesome way.

I predict a straight A student with a knack for writing and a voracious appetite for good books.

It sounds like your daughter is preparing early for this fall's James Bond movie (Quantum of Solace). ;)
