Our daughter (15): ‘Papa, do we have anything delicious for breakfast?’
Papa: ‘Don’t know. Let’s go down the kitchen to prepare something, call your brother, too.’
She (to her bro): ‘Walter, watch out, escape, run for your life, I got caught, but you might still have a better life waiting for you somewhere else….!’
She’s turned 15 today.
Only 15 and she is already constantly busy with the welfare of mankind!
Our son (10 yr old) in the morning, appearing with self prepared & served breakfast:
He: ‘Papa, egg breakfast for you, seasoned with herbs freshly picked from the garden.
Mama, you’ve received also butter to the toast as I know you prefer that way. Careful with the butter knife.’
Our son (10):
‘Papa, I want to become vegetarian. I don’t eat meat any more.’
My spouse (patiently):
‘Sure, no problem. In the meanwhile – would you like roast bacon for breakfast?’
My husband: ‘Voila, I have brought you some breakfast. Lili got the same, only with less soy sauce.’
..And so this is how I learnt that during Corona lockdown my biggest competitor in the food chain is our mini water-turtle.
Breakfast – incl. salty-caramel chocolate – served in bed by my son (10 ys) this morning.
An additional strong argument for having children (costs well exceeded by benefits).
