Eating for strong bones

At lunch today, Fainjin was pleased to see I had given him some cashews.  “Mum!” he said, “These are nuts! And nuts are good for you! ‘Cos they give you strong bones and healthy blood!”

I agreed that nuts are good for you, and he happily continued with his lunch.  Babess came to join him, and he told her that nuts are good for your bones.

“I have bones,” she asserted, pointing to her arm.

There was a short pause, then: “You probably have a head bone, too,” big brother told her kindly.

These kids crack me up.
