<Eating cheese on toast at lunch time>
Pre-schooler – I don’t like cheeseon.
Me – You don’t like the cheese?
Pre-schooler: No, this bit.
Me – The toast?
Pre-schooler – No, the cheeseon
Me – You don’t like the cheese on top of the toast?
Pre-schooler – *clearly annoyed with me* NO. The cheeseon.
Me – It’s just toast, with cheese on top. Melted under the grill. You love cheese *pointing* and you love toast *pointing*. I don’t understand what is the matter.
Pre-schooler – This bit!!! The cheeseon.
Me – There is no such thing as cheeseon! That is cheese. Melted on top of toast.
Pre-schooler – I have a tummy ache.
<end of lunch time. Extra cheese on toast for me>
