A Cure for Morning Breath

"You smell that?"

“You smell that?”

My youngest daughter came into our bedroom for a family cuddle with us parents and our two other children.

But as quickly as she piled in, she put her hand up to her nose and said, “Yuk, somebody’s got stinky breath.”

Thankfully, she didn’t specify who and only indicated with her eyes that it must be one of us adults.

She backed away, and I asked, “Where are you going?”

“To the kitchen,” she said.


“To get some chocolate,” she said. “It makes breath smell delicious.”

She returned a minute later with a piece of chocolate and handed it to me. I got out of bed to test out her theory and tired not to think about what else her sommeliers nose could discover that morning.
