by-grace-of-god prolifeproliberty candiikismet gingersofficial Life path unlocked He’s a scientist now If your dad is telling you in great detail about something he’s passionate about you’re going to be hooked even if you don’t understand a word He tells us more… So now I have to deliver a quiet lecture on the Standard Model every night He loves lists of things like all the streets home from daycare or the train stations between here and Central so he loves hearing the list of leptons and quarks and bosons Anyway I made this poster for him based on the CPEP ones we used to have at uni Alas I ran out of room for antimatter colour charge and confinement but hey maybe there can be a second poster later It’s funny though — on the surface of it it seems like it must be far too advanced for a 3yo But when you think about it quarks and leptons are no more or less real to him than say dinosaurs or planets and he loves those too And he recognises the letters on the particles I am absolutely overwhelmed by the kind and sweet things people are saying about this thanks everyone ❤️ Addendum he has really grasped onto the “everything is made of atoms” part of this so tonight he listed just about every object he could think of and asked if it was made of atoms “And my bed?”Yes and your bed“And that wall?”Yep“And the armchair?”Yes the armchair too……“And… the book case?”Y— “And my home?”Yep the whole apartment block“And your home? Oh wait your home is my home”Haha it is……“But is it made of atoms?”Yep“And… best friend’s home?”Yes it is And other friend’s home and third friend’s home “Is yet another friend’s home?” Update from the other night “Is my… is… extremely long pause is my atoms poster made up of atoms?”—Yes! Yes it is I have never heard such a contemplative silence I think the next poster will have to be on the philosophy of referential language Update from this morning after listing everything in sight mummy? daddy? fridge? milk? cereal? table? etc he asks “is baby sister made up of atoms?” yep! *runs over to her on the floor**puts face up real close to hers*“HI! YOU’RE MADE UP OF LOTS OF ATOMS! DID YOU KNOW?” Meme
