I am a firm believer in family dinner. Most evenings around 6pm you will find our family sitting down together at the table. We have some of our best conversations there.
Today I accidentally burned Kelsey while we were baking. During dinner she started talking about getting an air bubble on her hand.
Mom: "A what?"
Kelsey: "An air bubble."
Mom: "Oh! You mean a blister."
Kelsey: "No, an air bubble. Like you get when you touch something hot. There's air in there."
Olivia: "Kelsey, it's not just air in there. One time I was licking this thing on my hand and I didn't know it was a blister and something came out. It tasted salty and Mom told me it was pus in there."
Mom: "No, it's not pus - not unless there's an infection. It's just a fluid."
Olivia: "What's it made of?"
Mom: "Oh, probably mostly water and salt."
Olivia: "Yes, there's definitely salt. I tasted it."
Mom: "Yes, you did."
Olivia: "Well, it's not like I did it on purpose."
And then Connor (who had remained completely silent and appeared uninterested in this entire conversation) came out with his two cents without missing a beat.
"Yes, you did."
