After dinner this evening, we spent some time outside drawing with sidewalk chalk, having barefoot races to the neighbors’ driveway, practicing cartwheels, spinning in circles on the lawn…you know, normal stuff. When it was time to pick up the aftermath and come inside, we had the following conversation.
John: Kids! Pick a number between one and 10.
Me: Neely, it has to be a number that comes between one and 10.
Aidan: Five, no, six! Seven! Eight!
(We went with his first choice.)
John: Aidan was closest. Aidan, pick up the sidewalk chalk. Neely, go take a shower.
Neely: What?! Five.
I die. These kids crack me up. Daily.
