Sweet as Pie (Shepherd’s Pie)

Seth-7yr, after a field trip to an apple orchard. He holds up a less than stellar looking apple and proudly tells me it is “the exact kind that YOU are, Mom.”

 

“What?”

“Yeah. If you were an apple. You would be exactly this apple.”

I frown at it.

“come on! Name some apple types!”

I try. But Macintosh and Granny Smith and Honeycrisp don’t have anything to do with me. And Seth-7yr can’t stand it anyway.

 

“NO!! It’s a Pink Lady with bruises!!!!”

 

He giggled and was very proud of himself for this. I looked at what skin i had showing, and yeah, there were the usual few bruises.

Huh.

Well. Okay. 

If I have to be an apple, he’s right. That’s the one.

That’s my family’s favorite apple. Definitely not an insult to be compared to one. =]
