Saturday Sentences - Apple Skin
I'm not sure I'll do Saturday Sentences every week, but we had dinner with Andrea and her family this evening and she made a good point... why not "capture" even the kids' silly (or enlightening) conversations so they can be remembered and shared:)
At lunch we had apple slices on the table. We try to encourage the kids to eat lots of fruits and veggies.... and we noticed that Christopher hadn't eaten any....
Christopher: I don't want any because it has skin on it.
Mommy or Daddy: Christopher, just try it, you've eaten the skin before:)
Christopher: No I don't like skin.
Anna: Christopher, to take the skin off all you have to do is turn the apple around and bite the skin off... like this. (She then shows him how; biting pieces of skin off and eating them.)
Christopher : Oh, OK...... (then he starts biting off chunks of skin and apple and eating the side with skin)
Hah ha haaa.... Guess he's grateful for a big sister that can "solve" any problem:)
