Confidence

Staley:  "Daddy, do you know a lot about flowers?"
Zach:  "I know a little about flowers, but Miss Vickie [our neighbor] knows a lot about flowers."
Staley:  "I know more than Miss Vickie."
Zach:  "I think Miss Vickie knows more about flowers than you do, but I'm sure she could teach you."
Staley:  "I can teach you something about flowers."  (Thinking for a few seconds and then matter-of-factly sharing the following 'fact')  "Flowers need a lot of wind."

Confident?  No doubt.  Misguided confidence?  Definitely.

Now excuse me while I go outside to blow on my flowers.
