Today while speaking with my chemistry prof, my 4 year old made me one proud Mama.
Here's the tale:
Wednesday, whilst shadowing a doc, I asked about the differences in "new breeds" of medication. He answered and I had no idea what he said. He sort of sounded like the teacher on Charlie Brown. I mean, I caught a few of the words but...not enough.
So I asked my Chem prof today.
He whipped out his models and was showing me the differences in left handed and right handed isomers and really, I understood what he meant.
Apparently, so did my 4 year old.
He said, "Hey those colors match!"
To which CP (chem prof) responded, "That's right, there's blue, green and white..."
4yo: "Wait, White is NOT a color."
CP: "um, what did he just say?"
Yup, I'm raising a little army of nerds. And I am PROUD of it.
