We usually have some Greek yoghurt in the fridge, in 500g pots, which the children will eat with honey as a sweet healthy-ish treat. I don't know quite how or why but it has become usual to eat this treat from a teacup. Also, in a bid to develop independence (and because I'm lazy), we encourage the children to serve themselves.
This evening Ethan asked for honey and I encouraged him to sort it out himself.
I turned around and he'd grabbed a large pot of double cream out of the fridge and was about to help himself. I said "Er, no Ethan. That's double cream. If you ate that you'd die."
"Really?" he asked.
"No. I was kidding"
"I didn't believe you anyway."
I love the fact that children don't like to feel duped at all, just like grown-ups really.
