I had NO CLUE how much Romeo LOVES apples.

The other night I just finished folding laundry & decided to watch a movie and eat an apple.
It was about 10 O'Clock and Wiler & the boys were asleep...or so I thought....
After about 10 minutes of Jane Austen bliss, in pops Romeo with a BIG GRIN and a "hey mom."
Up on the bed he goes, and we're on our bellies sharing an apple and watching the love story continue.
So...we've eaten to what I suppose is done. We've got the core & two ends, so it looks like it's set to be thrown away when Romeo says, "more mom!" and reaches for the apple. I give it to him and the boy DEVOURS the WHOLE APPLE! Core, seeds, stem, spiky circle thing on the base. I would have taken a picture but I couldn't believe it. ...actually he did save me one seed and a little smidge, which I took a picture of later because I was in shock at the time.
Totally thinking, good for you son.

Waste not, want not.

tiger suit.

So, Dash has found more fun this week.
He decided that he would be a tiger, everywhere we went.
....the grocery store, church (morning & evening), hiking, camping, to the landfill, to the animal shelter, to dominoes, to Lowes....
With the exception of my removing it to wash, he's been in it 24/7 since last Friday...the 24th.
And, he is currently on "restriction" for trying to "maul" his brother.
So, he is now a transformer...Optimus Prime to be specific, and Romeo is now Bumblebee.
...more than meets the eye.
Have a great day!!
