The kid woke up like a shot at 7am:

"Mom, in space, Mars is so far away from da sun. So Mars is so cold. So only Canadians could go dere. But Mars doesn't have any air. So only aliens could live dere."

Canadian aliens, I'm guessing.

Smarty Pants

This just in from the Kid's dad:

"Dad, I know everything."
Oh, is that right?"
"Yes! And Mom knows I know everything."
"Wow. I guess she must know everything too then."
"Nope. She just knows about cars and fixing things."
He thought about that while gazing out the window for a minute.
"Actually she doesn't know about that stuff either."
