*'drowned' for a week?*

As the girls were enjoying their tea this evening, and I was pottering in the kitchen, I could hear a conversation going on, that went something along the lines of this:

F: You really shouldn't mess about with your food, A!
A: Why not?
F: Because if you're a naughty girl, mummy will 'drowned' you for a week!
A: What does that mean?
F: It means that mummy will be really cross, and you'll be drowned.
A: What does drowned mean?
F: I don't know, but it's really bad.

At this point, A decided to seek clarification, but because I'd only caught snippets of the conversation, when she asked me what drowned meant, I gave her the literal meaning, i.e. a watery end. It was only when F came in and said that she'd heard of people being drowned for a week when they'd been naughty, that I realised she meant 'grounded'!!! *phew*

The prompt at her space:my space today is 'milk'; rather than re-post the photo I took yesterday, which was distinctly milky, here is my contribution today:

And because we had the milk out, we also had to get some shots of A's milky chops!

Wishing you all a happy Tuesday, what's left of it wherever you are!
