Auntie how do you eat?

Out of the mouths of babes and this from my nine year old niece a few months ago as we sat eating supper one night. No, I was in no way offended! Yes, I was delighted to have answered her question.

My niece Faith is a very bright and observant little girl and as she sat next to me on this occasion, I could sense that she wanted to ask me something. I could hear her whispering to my sister-in-law but could not really hear what she was asking or saying. Then I heard my sister-in-law telling her to go ahead and ask me and she did: “Auntie how do you eat?”

So I told her and showed her how I did and she closed her eyes and tried it out and she understood. She got it! Ah yes, kids! They never cease thinking and asking.
