Eli was in love with the chicks. So much so that he wanted to take one home with him for his pet, claiming that they had zero pets. He is so into animals right now. He rode with Jeff and me to my mom and dad's. We were talking to him about what he wanted to be when he grew up. At first he said that he wanted to be a court reporter like his mom. The reason being that he wouldn't have to work every day! HA! Then he went on to say that he would like to work at an aquarium or zoo.
Everything Eli says cracks me up and charms me at the same time. He asked my dad if he just bought a carton of eggs for the chickens to come out of. His favorite chick was the light golden one. That's what he called it. Light golden. There was a little runt whose eyes were just barely open. He was kinda left out of the group and we all felt sorry for he/she/it. Eli gently picked he/she/it up and took he/she/it to the water jar. We felt like the runt was feeling better by the time we left from all the TLC
Eli gave him.
