With a houseful of fussy kids, food (and drink) are big issues in our family. And sometimes the source of some mystery.
LG age 4 1/4: What’s that green thing that lady’s eating? (It’s an APPLE!)
Daddy: Do you want a quarter cup or a half?
LG age 4 1/4: Is a quarter lesser?
LG: What does lesser mean? Is it more?
LG age 4 1/4: How does your food get into your tummy? Why doesn’t it get into your bones?
LG age 4 1/4: B1 said sausages are actually made out of pigs, are they?
LG: But they don’t look like anything on a pig.
Me: No more for LG or your tummy will go pop.
LG age 4 1/2: When tummies go pop, does the food go everywhere?
B1 age 9 1/4: Why are some potatoes horrendous?
B2 age 7: Why are you getting wine? Because it’s Jesus’ blood?
Daddy: No, because it’s polite when you visit someone.
LG age 4 3/4: There’s Jesus’ blood!
B2: No, that’s Coke Zero.
