Five-Year-Old Wit


This week we studied apples. Did you know that they used be known as "winter bananas"? What about the fact that the average person eats 65 apples a year? (I actually think my son eats more than that.) We also learned there are 7,500 different apple varieties. And finally, "pomme" is French for apple. I like to throw in some French vocabulary every once in a while since I grew up in Haiti and Daniel finds it interesting.

Later in the day my son asked, "Was last Sunday Palm Sunday?"

Busy folding fabric I mumbled, "yes."

"You mean Apple Sunday."

I looked up. My son was grinning, quite proud of his quick wit. So am I.
