You most definitely can learn a thing or two from a 5 year old. He is very intelligent and well diversed as well as outspoken. I am 45 years old with a 5 year old who motivates me more than he could ever know. His hourly hypotheses are sometimes very factual; his uttering words of "I love you, Mom!" Brighten my entire daily, it the smallest and cutest things my son does that I am truly grateful for.
