Apple Mystery

Can anybody explain why when I give Klara a cored, skinned apple that I cut up into convenient little pieces, she pushes it away and tries to grab the huge apple that I’m eating and that she can barely hold on to? And when I relinquish it and bite into a second apple, she grabs the second one, too?

    She likes the apple skin? She wants whatever you have? What happens if you pretend to eat the cored apple?

    Ha! Same here!


  3. You’re her role model. She wants to be like you and to do what you do. Perfectly normal with kids of that age. To paraphrase a standard joke, kids worship their parents until age 8, and start to respect them again at 25.

    Because she is 1? It’s a great way to get kids to try new foods: just put it only on your plate and pretend it is only for mommy/daddy and then “give in” and let them have some 😉


  5. A professor I know has a 5 year old who currently refers to him as her “senior colleague.”


  6. If the apple is red, she may just think it is pretty.
