I Need This Book

I desperately need this book…

On the 45 minute round-trip drive to swim lessons tonight my 7 year old asked me what seemed like 200 questions. Everything from "Can a part of your body move without your brain telling it to?" (We determined yes, if someone pushed you.) To "Who started World War II?" and "What countries were on our team?"

While I consider myself fairly intelligent I will readily admit that history is NOT one of my passions. I know enough to make general conversation. Obviously not enough to answer the questions of my 7 year old. My husband is not helping matters by watching "Top Ten Military Helicopters" etc. etc. with him. Noah knows WAY more than I do. Tonight when I finally said, "You’re going to have to ask Dad that one." He said "Let me guess. You know NOTHING about war!"

He’s pretty close.

    I not an history buff either. But I suspect that I will grow into one as the kids get older. I didn’t know they made Dummy books for Wars. How neat, I will be picking them up in about 5 years or less, hopefully they have it on CD, so I listen in one night, it probably wouldn’t keep my interest otherwise!

    That is too funny! I think it’s great that you didn’t pretend to know the answers though because that would have been worse! I guess you’ll just have to start reading up on it 🙂
