In Which Maximus Proves he Lives in Lucas Roebuck's Home

Today Maximus was looking at a little placemat we have that lists the numbers 1-10 and then the corresponding number of a particular type of food next to it. As I was feeding Maggie her breakfast this morning, I  heard Maximus quietly listing off the numbers and the foods:

"One apple, two carrots, three strawberries, four tomatoes...."

And then he paused, studied number nine and eventually looked up at me and asked me:

"What's this one, Mama?"

I leaned over, looked at the placemat and smiled.

"That, my dear Roebuck child, is an onion. Nine onions."
