When hunger strikes, creativity kicks in. We hit the fridge and whip up improvised recipes depending on what ingredients are on hand. But apparently, this resourcefulness kicks in early on in life.
Take the hilarious story of 18-month-old Eve Jackson who, out of thirst, frantically searched for boobies and breast milk while in a Primark boutique bra section!
Toddler looks for milk in bra section, mother captures it all on video
Her mum Vicky Jackson, 35, managed to capture it all in a short clip, which shows the toddler rifling through different bras while babbling “MILK!”
“Is there any in there?” asks her mum at some point, in between light chuckles.
The mum told MSN news that her hungry tot was “entranced” by the rows and rows of bras she “thought (would have) boobs in them.”
She went on to say that it was “quite sharp” of her daughter to associate bras with milk.

The mum shares that her “inquisitive” daughter was at the weaning stage, where she often “breastfeeds for comfort.”
“It was so funny,” said the mum of three, whose other kids Isabel, 11, and Nat, 13 were also with her and her husband Sean at the Merry Hill Shopping Centre in Birmingham, England.
Vicky was just about to feed the hungry toddler before the hilarious incident happened.

The importance of having a sense of humour
Parenting can be challenging at times and it always helps to have a sense of humour!
From the moment you first blow raspberries on your baby’s belly to your first tickle fight, sharing a laugh with kids is always a priceless moment.
It’s important not to take yourself too seriously as a parent. Don’t be afraid to goof around and just roll with your kid’s sense of humour!
Encouraging their funny side will help kids:
- be more spontaneous and adventurous
- see beyond a regular perspective of situations
- be more open to creative ways of thinking
- engage and savour the lighter side of life
- be more optimistic about life and become determined to solve problems
- learn to laugh at themselves!
- be open to learning about themselves in the world
- gain healthy social skills
Most importantly, it helps them have fun growing up!
