Caroline counted the cats, the dog, and the two of us. "Five! There are five of us in the family down here."
I mentioned that Daddy and Sylvie were sleeping upstairs.
"Ok, seven. Seven people in the family. Well some are creatures. But there are seven people and creatures in the family. That's a lot of people and creatures! TOO MANY!"
I asked what she thought we should do about that.
"I guess we'll have to... sell Daddy."
I asked what price she thought he would bring.
"Seven dollars." Then she kind of raised an eyebrow and made a slight grimace, " Wait, maybe six."
