The Logic of Little Fish

The conversation:
"What that Mumma?"
"It's your medicine."
"I not liking that"
"No, it's ok, see, it's in a syringe, I'm going to put it into your tummy tube"
"Because it's good for you"
"Because you need it"
"Just because, ok?"

Brief pause.

"I not liking my banana Mumma"
"Oh dear, never mind, eat it up then"*
"Because it's good for you"
"Because it gives you energy, and vitamins, and helps you to go to the toilet"
"Because it just does**, now eat it up whilst I sort Mog out a minute"


And then I return to this:
A banana filled syringe."I not eating that, Mumma, I not liking that, you put it in my tummy tube."

I can't fault the logic.

*For I am a deeply sympathetic mother
**For I am also a deeply impatient mother.
