(on our way to storytime at the library, and playing at the playground after)
luke: let’s go to a different playground. let’s go to the playground with the tires we can climb on,
me: which playground?
luke: grandma and grandpa’s playground, with the tires I climb.
me: oh, the playground by grandma and grandpa Payne’s house?
me: it’s kinda far away. we would have to drive for days and days.
luke: ok, let’s drive for days and days. it will take 5 minutes.
me: no, it takes a lot longer than 5 minutes. hours and hours, a couple of days.
luke: like, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 (counting on fingers)?
me: yeah, lots.
luke: like as big as our house?
me: yeah, as big as our house.
luke: like as big as all the houses?
luke: oh. let’s go to the library.
sometimes things take a long time, as big as all the houses.
