Out of the Mouth of Babes, 24/7

My daughter’s oldest, Camden, 10, calls me every Sunday to talk.
Recently he called when I was working on my long arm and this is about how the conversation went.
Camden: Are you downstairs sewing?Downstairs view
Me: Why do you ask?
Camden: I can hear one of your sewing machines.
Student Spaces
Me: How do you know it’s a sewing machine?
Camden: Grandma, you have 12 sewing machines, (he counted them the last time he was here) I know what they sound like. (in my defense. some have a specific purpose and others are for students/volunteers)
Me: I could be doing something else.
Camden: You teach classes and anybody that comes to your house. I bet you spend 5 hours a day downstairs sewing.Studio Entrance
Me: Well, Camden I would if I didn’t have to work long hours everyday.
Camden: I bet if you didn’t work, you would be downstairs 24/7.
Me: Do you know what 24/7 means?
Camden: (sigh in his voice) Yes.
Me: So what does 24/7 mean?
Camden: (talking to me as if I need explanation because I don’t know). Twenty-four means the 24 hours in a day and seven means the number of days in a week. So that means you sew all day, everyday.

    So sweet. I am sure he is right. I would also be in my workroom 24/7 if I could.

      Jaye, he does have me pegged. Wouldn’t it be nice if we all could stay home from work and play?
