It's dinner time.
"E? Elijah! Can you hear me?" [He was obviously engrossed in some activity because my kids would never hear me and not come...no, never. :)]
"Could you make some limeade for me?"
Limeade in progress, good. As is customary with my 7 year old chef, lime and/or lemon halves are stacked in neat order. As I'm stirring the sauce for our spaghetti squash, Eli comes over to discuss limes.
"Mom, if we were a big family, I'd juice like 12 or 24 limes and I could make a castle out of them."
"If?" I say, thinking perhaps he doesn't realize we are a big family.
"Honey, look around, we are a big family."
"Well, I know, but I mean, a real big family...you know, like a BIG family."
Wonder how many kids Eli will have?
