Good morning, gentles all. 🌇
Today, the 6yo is throwing a giant fit because I won’t cut the apple they want to eat into slices. “Why was I even alive???” they ask meaning, “Why was I even born?” Indeed, is life worth living if your parents don’t want to wash a cutting board and knife every time you look at an apple and you have to just take bites if it? Surely not. 🙄
I'm with the kiddo on this. Apples taste better when slices.
But also, I cannot count how many times I've injured myself trying to slice some tasty apple.
But also also, it just made the apple more delicious.
@guerrillarain If the kid wants to slice their own apples, and wash the dishes and do their own first aid, I’m not gonna stop them.
@guerrillarain Like, I agree that slices are great. But throwing an enormous fit over getting only 90% of exactly what you want is… whew.
@benhamill 😂 but but but isn't that what dads are for?????
@benhamill I don't notice the blossom-end stuff.
The hard stuff around the seeds is only a problem in a couple varieties with a drier core, and I avoid it in those. I can't remember which.
@benhamill Oh hey, our 5-almost-6-year-old has just started pulling this nonsense too.
