I was just reading a science book to the kids. We were reading specifically about all the parts of the eyes and I was pointing to the diagram and my own eye as I was naming it's parts.
The boys were thoroughly interested and my daughter was interested too, but she started to get jumpy and weird. I had just finished explaining to my oldest how the pupil of the eye is actually a hole underneath the cornea.
"What is up with you?" I ask my squirming daughter.
"I just don't want to listen to this anymore! I want to go outside now!" She says this in a very fussy way. "It scares me, ok?"
"What?" I ask.
"It scares me!" She yelps.
"Why would it scare you? You can go outside." I laughed out.
"Ok," she said, "I just don't want to hear anything more about some 'hole,'" she murmurs as she walks toward the front door.
I tried to suppress a laugh but failed. Eraser Eater and the Oldest giggled.
"AN EYE! AN EYE! YOU SEE WITH IT AND IT IS SCAAAARRRRYYY!" sang my oldest, while wiggling his fingers toward my daughter as she shut the door in a huff.
