So, it's been a long time since I've posted here. Dean is almost 5 now. He'll be starting kindergarten in the fall. Scary, right?
One of the things about Dean is how smart he is about things. He integrates in formation in a fascinating way. The other day, at the mall, there was a kiosk that had various toys. They had a machine on the roof that filled bubbles FX fog. When you popped the bubbles, you got a little poof of "smoke". There were, predictably, many kids running around trying to pop the bubbles. They also had "guns" that blow bubbles when you pull the trigger. Dean quickly figured out that if you shot the fog bubbles with the regular bubbles from the gun, they'd merge, making larger bubbles. For the next several minutes, he ran around trying to make the bubbles bigger.
Science is awesome.
