Cheeky monkey

Isn’t it hilarious when kids try to use your advice/warnings/rules – repeated to them ad nauseum in a desperate attempt to teach them some manners – to suit them?

Today we walked into a newsagent and Ella was fondling the packets of M&Ms at the counter when she said: “We eat what we touch, mummy.”

[One of those things I say often at social events to prevent her putting snack food back on the plate after she’s held it, or even taken a bite of.]

Thankfully I could say that it only counted for things that are not wrapped.
