september 17 2008

Children often come home with the most interesting questions.

We're now past the questions about the excistence of Santa Claus (Sinterklaas here).
Sometimes I miss all those interesting conversations we had in the kitchen.
"Why this", and "why that".

Sometimes questions were just asked for the sake of asking something.

Those were the years that mom knew it all.

But I'm happy I have internet to assist me.

Today I got questions about ozon and the ozonhole.
I knew quite a bit about the subject and I was able to put it into the right words.

But when I was asked how big the ozonlayer was today I just didn't know.

I found out, however.

The NASA has a site: The Ozon Hole Watch.
You can find it here.

  1. My 5 yr old has been learning all about the ozone layer & everything to do with the business of recycling. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry when I discovered a huge mound of uneaten bread crusts, crisps & other snack food he's sneaked to his room because he was making compost!
    I'd tell you all about the fun I had cleaning the carpet but I'm too exhausted from the cleaning & toxic fumes from the pile to type


Thank you for your comment.
