On Saturday, Mr. Brooke mixed up some milk for Bluebird and gave it to her, which sparked the following conversation:
Bluebird: "This milk needs to be stirred more."
Mr. Brooke: "Oh...alright." [He then stirred it some more in order to dilute more of the milk powder.]
Bluebird: [Takes a sip] "I think we need to pour this in the sink and get me a glass of water."
So there you go, how to get your children to drink more water--serve them reconstituted milk.
(Rabbit downs the stuff once I put a little chocolate syrup in it. I've also found that reconstituted milk is far more palatable if you mix in a little vanilla flavoring.)
