Frances: I don’t want to hurt your feelings, Mum, but it isn’t ‘bath time’.

Me: Oh, why not?

Frances: If it were ‘bath time’, I’d actually be in the tub right now. I think you mean that it is almost bath time. No offence.

I love her logic!

(She was six years old at the time and had just learned how to tack on ‘no offence’ at the end of her very honest observations. She still does this.)
