A few days ago, Matt and Kael started watching Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos on netflix. This evening, I’ve had the greatest pleasure watching an episode with Kael and hearing him say, “the galaxy is so beautiful!”, “Mommy, look at the stars. They are so amazing!”

His dad thinks that I project my nerdiness and neuroses onto him…. but no, I think that’s just the person he is… and as I’m typing this he says to me “oh my gosh, Mommy, I’m growing an extra tooth where no tooth fell out!! Why do I have a tooth here?” It’s a molar. Point made.

Stay curious, my little love, it will serve you well.
