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.”



“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.


Well. Okay. 

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

I love little boy humor!!! I actually got a good chuckle out of that one.

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