Opinion about Baby Nursery Imagery

Hi All,

As you may or may not be aware, in a few months I'm going to be a father to the world's newest little boy. And my wife and I are thinking about his bedroom decor.

But my wife and I have a little disagreement. She wants cute traditional things like animals and whatnot.

And I'm thinking it might be cool to have pictures of atoms, molecules, polymers, cells, all the way up to solar systems and galaxies... Kind of a tour of the universe, starting from the very small and working up to the very big...

I know it's a bit cerebral, but it seems like if the fundamentals of science can become part of his surroundings from the beginning, contributing to his early education -- when children are supposed to be able to learn with the greatest ease -- that would be doing him a great service far and above pictures of Winnie the Pooh and the Lion King.

What do you all think? Am I out of my mind - already putting too much pressure on my unborn child - as my wife seems to believe? I mean, I have nothing against, "Go Dog Go," but compared to the endless wonders of science and mathematics, it seems somewhat lacking...

Thanks in advance,
