Starting His Day

I shouldn’t wonder how Henry seems to know things that are far beyond his seven-going-on-eight years.  Nothing goes better with his morning decaf latte than The Wall Street Journal.

This morning, he was enthralled with the article concerning how business travelers are using smart phones instead of laptops.  With a dad who travels and uses both iPhone and MacBook, its relevance was obvious to him.

 Last week he came to me with the following bit of insight:  “Mom, Matt Groening is rich, but he’s not a multi-billionaire like Rupert Murdock, right?  Because he owns the whole Fox network!”  

Um, I don’t know Matt Groening’s net worth, but I can’t argue with that logic.  He throws around comments like that in passing–like a periodic trivia brain dump.  And then he skips off and goes back to playing with his Star Wars characters or reading his collection of Peanuts comics.

The only thing that has changed since he used to sit with his mini decaf latte (yes, he has loved the taste of coffee since he was a baby!) and his Washington Post every morning is that now he can actually read!

    Henry is more aware than a huge percentage of adults.

    Is this good, bad, or both?

    Haha, this cracks me up. The latte just pulls things together, too.

    I’m with Lara, though. Yikes!
