Sam: Momma, tell me something about electricity.
Me: Electricity is interesting, isn’t it? What do you know?
Sam: I know it comes in through wires and goes to the breaker box. Then when we turn on the light switch it makes the lights go on.
Me: Do you know anything else about electricity?
Sam: Yes. It loops around and around something called a circuit. And when it’s outside it goes into transformers. Those are the big things on top of poles.
Me: You sure know a lot.
Sam: I know. I want to learn more, though. Maybe someday I’ll know everything about electricity. Wouldn’t that be fun?
Me: Sure, learning is always fun.
Sam: I know . . . especially learning about electricity.
Note: We have no idea what makes him so curious about electricity. Some boys obsess over dinosaurs or space; our little guy obsesses over electricity and clocks!
