The Final Frontier

Little Miss has been obsessed with space for a little over a year. It's not an unwavering obsession, but it hasn't lessened. Last year, she got two books on space for Christmas and they are in frequent rotation. She usually specifically loves Miss Moon. Even this morning, she gave Miss Moon a loud greeting and wave on the way to school. She loves it when you can see Miss Moon during the day. She's expanded her knowledge to planets and stars. She had a blast at the planetarium last weekend and has been asking to go again. She asks to be quizzed daily on some factoid. I've now started to Google things to ask her because she's smarter than we are. 

The other morning, I asked her what galazy includes the Earth. I ended up telling her it was the Milky Way galaxy. She turned up her nose. 

 "I don't like the Milky Way," she declared. 

I had tuned her out by then and ended up responding, "The candy bar?" 

She had the nerve to tsk me and shake her head. She's getting very big and very smart. I don't know if I like it.
