Suddenly, out of the long grass ...

We were trying to get our four-year old girl to have some lunch today, when I made the mistake of being flippant.
Mum: "What do you want for lunch?"

Girl: "A bowl of things."
(This is code for a bunch of biscuits and other non-nutritional food together in a small bowl).

Mum: "Not for lunch. How about a sandwich?"

Girl: "Noooo."

Dad: "An apple?"

Mum: " A banana?"

Girl: "A bowl of things."

Dad: "How about a small giraffe for lunch?"

Girl: "A small giraffe! A small giraffe!"

This is the resulting lunch. A bread, ham, cheese and marmite giraffe, fresh from the hunt. The girl promptly skinned the ham and cheese from her prey's bread carcass and played with the "naked giraffe" for a while before finally putting it out of its misery.
