Science- and Duct tape

I am sorry if you get tired of hearing the Jayce stories. He honestly starts talking the second his eyes open in the morning and he stops when he falls asleep at night- so I rarely get a break- unless Ross is home- but sometimes there are moment that I know I need to write down or I will forget and today I have two of them.

Jayce- "Mom, Does Baylie get to study science in school?"
ME-Yes she does
J "AWESOME! Do you think that I can study science when I go to Kin-ter-garten?"
ME Well, I am sure you will learn a little about science every year while you go to school.
J "Well, I only want to study science, and maybe math- but usually I only like science"
Me- Okay, what will you study in science?
Jayce- Silence!
Mom- Are you okay buddy?
J "Yes, I am thinking!"
Nearly an hour later
J "Tree skin"
Me What? do you mean bark?
J- "Mom, Don't you know that dogs bark and trees have skin- like me, and maybe they shed, or maybe it bleeds, have you ever heard of tree blood, and do trees cry when they get cut or do they get a bruise or can they tell you not to hurt them or could they fall on you to make you stop or could they ask their tree friends to protect them------------------------ on and on and on and on and on and on!
Turns out trees are rather interesting from Jayces point of view!
Secretly I am so excited for Kin-ter-garten (this is how Jayce says it)
because its a 2 and a half hour break from the chatter! But I do feel a little bit bad for the teacher and the principle and the secretary and the janitor and the little people that will be listening to the constant chatter while he is at school!

At the grocery store he is rather friendly- I might have mention this before- a few times! He says to the clerk, "Hey What is that" and points to a place on the counter that has been covered with duct tape- She says- "Thats Duct tape dear, you will learn all about that some day- it fixes everything!"
Jayce says- "I already know all about duct tape- we use it to fix Baylie's mouth when she's mean and I think probably on Kelcey too- but mostly shes just getting married so we don't tape her up anymore- but its too hard for me to rip so I have to ask Baylie to rip it for me and then I can tape her mouth shut and ask her all the questions that she doesn't want to answer."
At this point I am moving toward the door- before the lady asks for my address and calls child protective services on me!
Just to clear things up- I have never used duct tape to shut my kids up-- But I am beginning to think there could be some wisdom in it- like, maybe taping Jayce's mouth shut when we go out in public!!

"but mostly she's getting married so we don't tape her up anymore"? where does he get this stuff? he's been spending way to much time with grandpa christensen, all the crazy stories, they're too much alike! :)
