I think the Dandelion just created his very first science experiment!
Dandelion: "Mommy, Look! When I clap with my glubs [gloves] on it is quiet"
Me: "Oooh, I like quiet clapping!"
Dandelion: "Want to hear me play the piano with glubs on?"
Me: "Do you think it will be quiet too?"
Dandelion: "Uh-huh" and runs off to the piano...
Me (listening to piano): "Well, was it quieter?"
Dandelion: "No, I can still play really LOUD!"
His Hypothesis: If clapping is quieter with gloves on, then piano playing will be quieter with gloves on.
The Conclusion: Piano playing with gloves does not sound different.
Okay, childhood is really a string of trial and error experiments, but I still like his mature thought process on this one!
