Just how big is very big??!

A conversation over idlis for breakfast this morning:

Ashwin: Amma, yesterday I had 4 idlis, right?
Me: Right (although the yesterday was actually many days ago and I make mini idlis)
Ashwin: Today I'm going to eat 5 idlis.
Me: That's good. You will then become a very big boy!
Ashwin: I will grow up very very very very very very very very very big right?
Me: (Not knowing the scale ) Right.
Ashwin: Then I will not fit inside this house!
Me: We will build another house for you then, a very big house.
Ashwin: giggle giggle..
Me: What's so funny?
Ashwin: I'm laughing because then all the clouds will come inside my house and I will be wet!

In all this while, he had eaten nearly 2 idlis.

Ashwin: Enough.
