I heard it through the grapeline
E's friend SMA and his parents joined us for second seder last week, and the kids mostly were off in the family room playing, just returning to the table for food. At one point, E and SMA were both eating grapes. SMA's mom had ripped the vine and handed them each a small bunch, and they were sitting on the step from the kitchen to the family room, picking off grapes one by one and eating them. Now E only wants grapes if we give her a little bunch to walk around with in her hand. "I want to eat them off the LINE, Mama! Like SMA eats them! Off the LINE!" We're going to invite him back over to use his powers for more good, like telling her how cool it is to sleep straight through the 3am hour.
