Standing in my kitchen smelling every utensil in my drawer because something smells off in there.

My handsome boy. (Taken with instagram)
Ruby: Mom, can I use some tape? (looking guilty but calm)
Me: What did you break?
Ruby: I don't want you to look.
Me: I promise not to yell. Please show me. (It is the big red umbrella, she's broken the stem part in half)
Me: Oh. Honey I don't think tape will fix that.
Ruby: Oh. *pause* We should hide this before daddy gets home.
Rachel: Mom are you going to cry next year when Ruby starts kindergarten?
Ruby: I am going to walk to school. And when school is over I will walk back home. (she hugs me as she says this)
Me: Why do you want to walk to school?
Ruby: Because then I don't have to hear you crying.
Eli: (looking at a picture of a peach with it's pit still in tact, with the word "PIT" next to it) What is a pit? This looks like a peach.
Me: The pit is the part that looks like a seed.
Eli: Why can't it just be called a seed?
Me: Because it's not actually a seed. The seeds are inside of the pit.
Eli: (a few minutes later) Why do arms have pits?
Me: Um, I'm not sure why we call them that. Maybe because when you hold your arm up it makes a dent, like where the pit is.
Eli: No, that's wrong. I know why.
Eli: You can't see it, but the bones inside are shaped like seeds.
