Me: Pai? How do you think science and art are alike?
Pai: Both are about discovery. Artist and Scientist discover what the world is all about. What about you, Mai?
Me: I think they are alike in courage. Creative people are very brave. What do you think Hank?
Hank: I wonder… I wonder… What is that last bit of chocolate doing there and if anyone needs me to eat it for them?
Pai: Go on. It’s all yours.
Hank: Mama, can you please come here and help tie my shoes.
Me: Of course. (swivel in my chair and narrate) I am imagining I just dove into the sea and I am swimming to you and you are a baby seal and I am your mama with a fish.
Hank: bark, bark. Fish! (Pantomimed eating) Mama, what are sharks made of?
Hank: Mama, be serious.
Me: I am serious. Sharks are made of shark meat, just like pigs and cows are made of carne (meat) and galinhas (chickens) are made of frango and people are made of flesh.
Hank: No mama. I am not. I am not made of flesh.
Me: Yes, you are.
Hank: Oh no I am not. I am made of batatas fritas! (french fries)
Me: (roaring with laughter) Yes. I believe you are.
Hank: (giggling himself blue)
