How many rolls in a wheel, where did eyeballs come from

Little G, a fearful sort, hides his face whenever anyone says "witch." Also, he hides his face when he thinks he might see a scary eyeball. Like when I showed the book About Your Body and it depicted bones, veins, muscles, and eyeballs.

The other day we had a math coloring page that featured a witch with bulging eyes. G seemed okay with it --- the witch was very comic looking --- so I asked him whether the eyeballs scared him.

"No," he said, coloring away. "I only don't like eyeballs when there's one, or a big pile of 'em."

That seems reasonable.
