This morning at breakfast, Eli was sitting at the table, waiting for biscuits to be done. I grabbed a piece of sliced cheddar and ate it. “Daddy!” he said, pointing to his lobster-themed placemat. “I need cheese on my lobster.”

Later he had his round silver compact out. It’s some two inches in diameter, and opens to display two mirrors. In doing so it forms two overlapping circles, one slightly smaller than the other. “Look, it’s a snowman!” he told us.
