Ben's Favorite...Mom's Standby



When I need Ben to behave (like at the Doctor's office yesturday) and patiently sit anywhere the trick is a whole apple. He loves apples like I have never seen a boy love anything. If I am eating an apple within ear shot he stops whatever he is doing at turns at the familiar crunch. He is delighted when I share my apples with him. I peeled and cored him one yesturday and he ate the entire choking hazard in one sitting. I snapped these pics the other day with a staged whole one. I didn't realize at the end that he had actually eaten through the skin and was almost down to the core. Better then candy I guess...

Oh, Jen, youa re a good mom! You know it seems that different parents are given different challenges, & I often think, "it's a good thing that that mom was given that child, because she'll do a good job with that challenge"-
I feel that way about you with Ben's allergies. Good for yoU!
