We turn to go back inside and I notice this nice, rectangular, patch of land, perfect for a little garden. I imagine tomatoes, squash, lettuce and all sorts of healthy things to offset the evil down below us. Perhaps we will even go organic to fit in to our CA neighborhood.
"Hey guys, this would be a great place for a garden! We can plant some tomatoes or squash!" I exclaim.
"Or maybe we could plant some fruit trees, mom. That would be better," Aidan replies.
"Yeah!" Madeline adds. "We could plant squash, or, I know, MARSHMALLOWS!"
I was getting ready to explain to her how marshmallows don't grow on plants when Aidan chimes in to set her straight.
"No, Madeline. We can't grow marshmallows," Aidan tells her. I stay quiet thinking how grown up he seems, explaining to his little sister how marshmallows don't grow on trees.
"WHYYYYYY, Aidan," Madeline whines.
He answers, "Because the coyote would come get them."
Well, close enough.
