On Friday morning, I left DS at the kitchen table with a coloring book and some sliced apples for a snack while I took a quick shower. When I came back to check on him, I found this:
My child actually ONLY eats the apple skin and then discards the rest of the fruit as trash (or into his crayon pile, in this case). How weird is that? If you give him a whole apple, he will literally eat every single bit of “red” off it and then throw the rest away. He also eats the crust first on his sandwiches.
I thought kids were supposed to want the skin cut off of their apples and the crust cut off of their sandwiches! Color me confused. Please tell me that my child is not the only one who has such weird eating habits.
P.S. In the above picture, do you see the round wax object on top of the purple crayon? That was one of DS’s Valentine’s gifts that he got at preschool last year. One of the moms actually melted a bunch of crayons and then used a cookie cutter to make them into multi-colored heart shaped crayons. Do you see what I have to compete with?
P.P.S. There’s now a Living with Lindsay fan site on Facebook! I haven’t told anyone about it, so there is only one fan – my good friend Angry Julie. Go and join the fan site, or else Julie is going to be even Angrier than she already is (and you seriously don’t want to see that…trust me).
