An Apple A Day

2 Comments

On Monday, I packed nine year old E an apple with her morning snack.  She didn’t eat it.

On Tuesday, the same apple went back to school in the snack bag.  She didn’t eat it.
She said, “Don’t pack another apple for my snack.”
I answered, “It’s not another apple.  It’s the same apple.”

On Wednesday, the apple went back to school in the snack bag.  She didn’t eat it.
She said, “Mommy, I told you not to pack another apple in my snack.”
I answered, “It’s not another apple.  It’s the same apple.”

On Thursday, the apple went back to school in the snack bag.  She didn’t eat it.
On the way home from school she said,”Mommy, why do you keep sending this apple to school?  I’m not going to eat it.”
I said, “Okay, hand it to me.  I’ll eat it.”  I ate the apple.

On Friday, before she left for school she asked me, “Did you put an apple in my snack?”
I answered, “No.  I did not put an apple in your snack.”

Then I laughed.  I had put an apple in her lunch.
