I was fortunate enough not to have to work the whole of today after all. The combination of my (hopefully) new Saturday guy doing a sound job, and a sick cleaner needing to get a lift home, meant I was home myself by1pm! Yay!
Jack had already had his lunch, but was facinated by me eating mine, which was only a tuna pasta pot and an apple. Nothing he has never seen before.
He really REALLY wanted my apple. I was going to share it with him once I finished my tuna, but he wanted it NOW so Yorkie went to fetch him one of his own.
He played with it for a while, not sure of what to do. He had eaten an apple by himself - a couple of small bites - once, but that was ages ago, and he seemed to have forgotten what to do. So Daddy took a bite out to get him started. Jack took his apple back, looked at the bite taken out, looked at me taking bites out of mine, and the penny dropped.
For the next hour and 45 mins he has been chewing on this apple (with breaks while he played with something else) and has now chewed it right down to the pips!
I think it's safe to say that we don't need to bother peeling and chopping up his apples for him anymore!
