While I was watching TV, my two-year-old Claire brought two apples to me. One for her and one for me. A lady of few words, she handed me hers and said “Open!”
I replied with “would you like me to cut it for you.” “No,” she insisted.
I repeated my offer. “No… Open!” She pointed to the stem.
For giggles, I pulled off the stem.
She grabbed the apple back: “Dank yoo!”
She then contentedly sat on the sofa and took a big bite of the opened apple.
