Meteors, Not Shooting Stars: Musings From The 6

When it’s time to put the kids to bed and they have me or my husband all to themselves in their rooms is usually when we finally get a quiet one on one moment and they each tell me all they know or tidbits and random highlights from the day. On this particular evening my 6 says to me in one hurried breath, “We’re learning about planets and people think shooting stars are stars, but they’re not, they’re meteors, but when they land on the ground, they’re meteorites and if you wanted to travel to the sun, you couldn’t because you’d die before you got there. Also, there’s a Mr. Bailey, did you know that?”

There’s some moments I just want to remember forever.
