Because we inexplicably fed our children garlic bread this morning for breakfast I got to have this conversation:
Me: Go brush your teeth before you leave for school because your breath smells like garlic.*
Her: Do they have garlic toothpaste?
Me: No. They don't.
Her: But what if someone made garlic toothpaste?
Me: Trust me, they wouldn't. Go brush your teeth.
And because our air quality is currently in the toilet:
Me: Did they let you outside at recess?
Her: The other day was a red day so we couldn't go out. But yesterday they said you can go out unless you have air breathing problems.
Her: I don't have air breathing problems, so I can go out.
*disclaimer: I do have her brush her teeth regardless of any garlic that may or may not be present. I do manage to be on top of that morning detail. But of course, this morning the smell was paramount!
