Chocolate really is fattening ...

As usual, we are in the car, we stop at a junction near a school.

A sea of children are exiting the school gates.

4 Year Old - Mummy, that boy looks like the one out of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory.

I have no idea which child she is referring to as there are approximately 50 children floating about; plus I am listening to her the radio at the same time.

Me - Who, Charlie Bucket?

4 Year Old - No, Mummy.

Me - Mike TV?

4 Year Old - No, Mummy. The one who swims in the chocolate and is soooo fat he gets stuck in a tube.

Me - Ah, that would be Augustus Gloop.

I'm so glad we were cocooned in the car for that one, with glass seperating us and the fat boy.

On a bus many years ago my sister (pre-school at the time) proudly announced to a lady passenger stepping aboard that she 'looked like a witch'. She did, too.

Kids do tend to tell the truth.

Don´t you just love how little kids minds work? They come out and say it how it is.
