We're making dinner together. Davidi and I made the noodles; I cut the onions and cabbage for frying. I asked Elie to cut the frankfurters into small slices. We'll fry the mixture. pile it on top of the noodles, add a sauce, make a salad. Quick, easy, mid-week dinner.
"Elie, don't do that!"
"Why? I didn't cut myself." He says as he carefully positions the frankfurters on the cutting board. He's very careful. He really is - he's also got a lot of strength which, since I didn't defrost the franks first, is needed to get the job done.
Okay....cut. Fry. Cut. Thwack!
"ELIE! That was my FAVORITE cutting board!"
"Now there are two of them," he responds with a grin.
Yeah...great. God, I love that kid!
