The mouths of babes...
I was at the farmers' market this morning, glancing at the hand-made chocolate stall. A small boy was eyeing up the large Easter eggs, and noticing me, he started a conversation...
Small Boy: You should buy one of these.
Me: I'd love to but I shouldn’t.
SB: Why not?
Me: Because my tummy's already too big! We don't want it to be any bigger do we?
SB: (ponderously) I know you don't have a baby in there... but if you did, and you ate one of those really big eggs, the baby could get squashed couldn't it?..."
Even with such a rudimentary understanding of biology, I was grateful for his support in the non-pregnant campaign!
