After jumping around my room and raising my voice in excitement as I talked about the nervous system today with my students, an interesting thing happened. When I asked, "Are there any questions?" one student rose his hand and said, "Are you going to have children some day?"
"Well, yeah, someday."
"Um, Mrs. Daniel. I feel really sorry for you."
I proceeded to ask, "Why?"
"Well, you always have a lot of energy and from what you have told us, so does your husband."
"Okay?..." I said not understanding where he was going.
"You see, it's just that, well, I feel bad for you because if your children are anything like you, you are DEFINITELY going to have your work cut out for you!"
Ahh, the things kids will say....
The question is, is this student right?
