Pumpkin Carving

Me: "Elliot, help me get the seeds out of the pumpkin. We have to scrape it out and make it all clean."

Elliot (looking in the pumpkin and then backing away in disgust): "Stinky."

Chris (putting his own hand in the pumpkin): "Come on, Elliot. It's fun. It's not yucky."

Elliot (looking at Chris as though Chris had just suggested that cookie did not, in fact, start with the letter C, but J, instead): "Yes, yucky."

Needless to say, Chris and I ended up doing all the leg work on this project. Elliot did, however, enjoy the result.

I love how you document your dialog with Elliot, he's really going to get a kick out of it when he's older!

I have to agree with Elliot on this one. Carving pumpkins is messy and gross.
