Conversations in our pediatric household
Sunday, September 23, 2012
You might imagine it went this way (because it did):
Child: What's your favorite beverage, besides water?
Parent: I don't know, I like water. What's yours?
Child: Hot fudge.
Parent: Hmm, that's probably considered a liquid, but not necessarily a beverage.
Child: Okay. So what's your favorite liquid?
Parent: Blood. And no, I wouldn't drink it. I also like intranasal influenza vaccine.
What's your favorite (pediatric) liquid, or beverage? Oh, and don't forget breastmilk!
