WORM SPROUTS

Miss V, "Mum?"

Me, "Yes Miss V?"

Miss V, "Didn't you know I am vegetarian?"

Me, "I do know that, Miss V. We are all vegetarian..."

Miss V, "But mum - how come you put worms in my dinner?"

Me, "I didn't!!"

Miss V, "You did.. Look.."

Me, "They are bean sprouts, Miss V! They come from a plant."

Miss V, "Mum, I am almost three now you know. You'll have to do better than that."

Me, "It's true! Bean sprouts grow from seeds!"

Miss V, "Can I just have cereal?"

Me, "You can have cereal after dinner if you're still hungry."

Miss V, "Can't I have cereal for dinner a'cause I'm not hungry?"

Me, "No, Miss V. This is your dinner. You can eat around the worms - I mean bean sprouts! You can eat around the bean sprouts if you don't want them."

Miss V, "Can I just go hungry?"

Me, "If you'd prefer to starve your body of nutrients, ok... But I'd rather you ate some stir fry."

Miss V, "I'd rather not ear worms. Thanks."

*Sigh*

...... And so, for our next project, we will be growing bean sprouts.

"You'll have to do better than that!" That's hilarious!

I once told my daughter that we were having angel hair pasta. That was a mistake.
