On the way home from pre-K today, Sophie said, “Mom, you know what?” “What?” I inquired. “The brain is the boss!” We then went back and forth about why the brain is the boss. Sophie says the brain makes you talk, it tells you to walk, it tells you to line up and it tells you to eat. She was very proud of her assertion. Rightly so, in a pretty perceptive pre-K kind of way.
I always thought I was the boss. But the brain as boss works for me. Maybe the bossy brain will do a better job of telling her she should eat her vegetables. That would be one cool brain.
