Last night at dinner my boy said this.. (I cooked steamed fish for dinner by the way)
"Mummy, I don't want to eat the fish. I want to see the fish swimming. I don't want to see it like this on the plate. Mummy, please don't eat the bones. I want to see the whole fish! Mummy, I want the fish swimming! Can you give me a fish so I can see it swimming and put it on my bed on my blanket? Can I have a whale?"
When I told him that a whale was too big, he then said...
"Can I have the whale on a big plate then.... but I want to see it swimming."
His sister added...
"You will need a big bowl then because fish needs water. Mummy, can we have a fish to put in a bowl in the middle of our bed between us?"
And what did mummy MG say?
"Can we all stop talking about fish so we can finish our dinner? Here eat this pork instead."
After lunch my boy said, "Mummy, when I eat, all the food go down my body to my feet and then it will push and push and make me grow taller." (probably in response to our always telling him to eat up his food so that he will grow tall and strong). Looks like another science lesson is in order. Lol.
