Your eyes aren't deceiving you - that is Eloise putting food in her mouth (whether or not she swallows it is another matter), and yes, that is 6 children. Two or three nights a week I feed the neighbor children, who ask me to feed them because "all the stuff in our fridge is rotten," or "there is nothing to eat at my house."
Mealtime is messy and noisy, but so full of life. I don't necessarily enjoy the demands and commotion, but I do love the feeling of fullness. Enjoying food and nourishing the body communally is a joy, and I enjoy our mealtimes despite the madness.
