We’re in the car today. You know, just driving along. Sam starts talking about s’mores, because I guess that’s something he thinks about on a regular basis.
That talk led us to a conversation about fires. So Sam starts talking about how fast things burn. He wants to know if paper burns fast. We agree that it does. So I ask him what he thinks would burn slow. He says wood would burn slow. I agree, and then he starts asking about sticks, and sticks with leaves, and how do things catch on fire and some other stuff. It was a great little Thinking About Things session we had.
Then Quinn pipes up. And this is what he says:
“What about pandas? And panda ears? They burn slow, right? Right?!”
And there’s a little taste of what it’s like to ride in a car with Quinn.
