Is this just an English English idiom, or is it used in other parts of the English-speaking world? This milk is definitely spilt - and spoiled - and there's nothing that can be done to put that right. Accidents do happen, don't they?But I reckon Mid-West Mom doesn't see it that way and little Miss Mid-West isn't going to sitting comfortably on that milking stool any time soon. I love this illustration and have seen it here and there over the years, but don't know where it's from or who the artist is. Can anyone help?
