Quotable Sunday

Elizabeth, silly.

Earlier this week while I was reading from the complete tales & poems of Winnie-the-Pooh during quiet time I laughed (to myself) that this was so like Elizabeth…

Pooh always liked a little something at eleven o’clock in the morning, and he was very glad to see Rabbit getting out the plates and mugs; and when Rabbit said, “Honey or condensed milk with your bread?” he was so excited that he said, “Both,” and then, so as not to seem greedy, he added, “But don’t bother about the bread, please.”
— A.A.Milne

And then on Friday after they had enjoyed frothy milk with honey in the afternoon Elizabeth asked for more. I said that she had had enough for the day… and she replied – incredibly honestly:

“Ok, can I have a teaspoon with just honey then?”
— Elizabeth, 3 years old.

As to prove my point I think.
