Plain apples have never been a favorite of mine. I love them in dishes but I’m not one to go, “You know what sounds good? A fresh apple.”
My youngest, on the other hand, loves them. Last week, he asked to have one as a snack. Normally I cut up his apples for him but he is getting old enough now that I figured he could just have one right out of the fruit bowl this time.
Then, he calls across the room for me because he thought part of his apple was bad and didn’t want to eat it. I go over to check it out for him and find that the “bad” part of the apple he was referring to was the freaking core!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
