I try not to make this a “Kids Say The Darndest Things” blog. For starters, Bill Cosby had that market covered in 1995. And if I spent all my time on this blog relaying the hilarious things Elijah and Luca say I’d be missing out on my favorite subject: me.
But today I’ll make an exception.
Last night I made it home in time to participate in crazy time. Diana and I laid in our bed and watched as Luca and Eli ran from room to room screaming and shouting and generally terrorizing Grover.
At one point, Elijah stopped short and looked at us in the bed.
“I have to get the camera.”
He arrived several seconds late with our ancient digital camera around his neck. He began to art direct us for the perfect shot.
“Turn that light off. Move over to the left.” He was practically saying “Work it…work it…”
He snapped off a few hundred shots and some of them were quite good. Diana said, “Eli, maybe you could be a photographer when you grow up.”
I immediately thought, “There’s no money in that.”
Eli looked at us and thought for a moment. He said, “No. I’ll be too busy being Luca’s dad.”
