Get everyone's smocks on, in seats, food before them. Hazel picks up her transparent sippy cup of water, takes a sip, and asks,
"Mommy, is it water or milk?"
Kind of surprised she doesn't see that it's water. Remember that whenever I answer this question with "water" she cries that she wants milk. Try a new tactic.
"What do you think it is?"
She takes another sip, considers.
He he he. Congratulate myself on another meltdown averted and the occasional ease of tricking a toddler.
