Big and I talked and talked this afternoon. He really enjoys the time we have alone while Bud's in school. Part of today's lunchtime conversation made me laugh.
Big: "What do rabbits eat, Mom?"
Me: "They eat lettuce, carrots, radishes, and things like that. They love raw vegetables."
Big: "Ewww! That stuff is yucky!"
Me: "Well, rabbits like it."
Big: "What do donkeys eat?"
Me (answering as Big gets distracted by something): "They eat hay and oats and stuff like horses do."
Big (in complete shock): "They eat horses?!?"
I clarified, which made him feel better.
Big: "What about goats? What do they eat?"
Me: "They eat pretty much anything."
Me: "Yeah. You know, they like grass, garbage, even hats."
Big: "Of course they like hats. They like to put them on their heads."
Talking to Big is always fun.
Then he started calling me Gordon.
