''Do you know that if you fell into a black hole, you would stretch like spaghetti?'' Colton leans forward, looking at me straight in the eye. His brown eyes wide as he nods his head continuously. I blink quickly as he back away, ''It's not just that but a day in Mercury lasts approximately as long as 59 days on earth.'' It fascinates me how he has more knowledge than me.
''Oh! Oh! Do you know that—'' I pick him up before placing him on my lap and he continues, ''—different parts of the world have their own local cuisine. The diets and general food habits of various cultures depends on social, religious, economic and safety factors as well as availability of different foods.'' He grins widely, ''Do you think that my facts are significant?''
I smile back at him, ''They're great facts, Colton. Where'd you get them?''
Alex appears out of nowhere and starts wrapping his arm around my neck, pecking me on the cheek. He messes with Colton's hair as Colton laughs, fist-bumping Alex. I watch as they bond. They both look like brothers who are close to one another; which is adorable. I'm not going to lie, even though Alex doesn't admit about liking kids but he's good with them.
''Me and mommy went to the zoo the other day.'' I hear Colton say toward Alex. Alex's eyes widen as he pretends to rub his lower lip and Colton goes on, ''There was lots of animals! I even saw a baby monkey. It was so cute. So tiny—'' Colton shows the size of the baby monkey with his fingers. I smile unknowingly, seeing him explain.
