At the breakfast table, we watch a BrainPop video on the Civil Rights movement that alludes to the Brown vs. Board of Education case. I ask who can explain Brown vs. Board, since we learned about it recently. Eliza authoritatively chirps right up.
"Well, the browns had to ride a bus to a school that was far away, while the whites got to go to a school nearby."
Oh, and a couple weeks ago I got this question -- also at the breakfast table, also from She Who Likes To Know the Answers:
"Wait. Mom [serious hazel eyes; cogs of mental wheels clearly spinning despite the threads of doubt working their way in], were you alive during Paul Revere's famous ride?"
That girl o'mine. There are times when I could just eat her up with a spoon.
