"It's me, myself and you".

Conversation with Ellie, tonight:

"Mum, want some milk, we didn't have some milk"
"We don't have any milk love"
"Want you to give me some milk"
"We don't have any. There isn't any in the fridge"
"Well, you bring some"
"Where from, love? We haven't got any."
"Get the water and mix it mix it and make the milk and bring it to me"
