So I'm driving in the car with Macey (she is four), and we have this conversation -

Macey: Mama, what is that thing that keeps stuff from floating?

Me: That thing.. hmm. It keeps stuff from floating?

Macey: Yeah! It keeps stuff from floating!

Me: Um, do you mean rocks?

Macey: No, no! It keeps STUFF from FLOATING. You know what I mean!

Me: Hmm. I really don't know, I... uh.. hmmm....

Macey: It's GRAVITY! And it works just the same in the spring as it does in the winter! Just so you know!

Me: Oh, THAT! Thanks for letting me know!

Too cute! Reminds me of the old Art Linkletter books that were full of the amazing things that roll off the tongues of little kids.
