On the way to school this morning I was pointing out some of the spots of breakfast that Diva had missed with her facecloth. As she dabbed frantically, I mentioned that having kids know what one has had for breakfast is probably not an optimal conversation starter. Then as a concrete example I said:
'I've noticed that '****' (one of Diva's good friends) always has milk moustache when I talk to her in the morning at school. So I know that she eats cereal for breakfast."
Diva shook her head solomnly. "No, Mummy, that's not why '****' has a milk moustache. " she said in a hushed, almost reverential tone. "It's because she is so healthy."
