Ten Planets?

So did everybody hear about the newly discovered tenth planet in our solar system? This is old news by now, but I hadn't had a chance to blog about it. Pretty crazy stuff... Think about the all the textbooks and stuff that has to be changed. I remember having a solar system placemat while growing up... How confusing is it for kids who may have just learned the names of the nine planets and now there's suddenly 10? I mean "My Very Energetic Mom Just Served Us Nine Planets" doesn't work to remember their names anymore. What's the solar system coming to?!

It’s worse yet if the temp name sticks...2003 UB313. Now that's just cruel to kids! (Just think of poor Emma and Maddy).
