Good Vibes

Pranav asked me what vibrate meant. I tried to explain. He vibrated like my iPhone and said , "So this is what vibrate means?"

He sure is a thinker. At bedtime, he lay down in his bed with the lights off, thinking quietly while I checked news on my phone. A plane flew overhead, and he said, "Do planes vibrate?" I said I thought they did, as their engines run. "Like that time I felt sick on the plane?", he said, remembering the time of intense turbulence in a plane last month that made him nauseous. "No, that was turbulence.", I said.

Then he lay thinking quietly again and eventually fell asleep.

It is interesting to watch him go through his phases before he falls asleep. First he talks a lot and asks lots of questions. Then he grows quieter and  more thoughtful. Finally, his breathing goes heavy and he drifts off.

End of summer

It's down to the last week and a half of summer. Pranav will be a first grader, Summy will be in seventh. Summy has offered to blog about Pranav because obviously, I haven't been keeping up.
