Apple Pickers Anonymous

It started early on Friday.

Ethan: Mom.mom.mom.mom.mom. I think we should make applesauce. Did you see on Sid the Science Kid that they made apple sauce? They took the apples and they melted them and then they mashed them and made apple sauce. We should make apple sauce.
Kristen: Cooked. Not melted.
Ethan: MELTED, Mom. They MELTED the apples.

I know. Pick your battles with a three-year-old already. Melted, cooked. Semantics.

We got up on Saturday and Ethan started in with the applesauce recipe.

Ethan: Dad.dad.dad.dad.dad. We should make applesauce. On Sid they made applesauce but they didn't melt them the first time and it didn't work so then they melted the apples and then the smashed them and made applesauce.

An hour later we were on our way to go apple picking. Nothing says good times like handing a three-year-old a 10-foot apple picker.

He woke up the next day and asked to go apple picking again. I would like to thank the people at Sid for keeping it season-appropriate. You just can't make applesauce any time of the year other than September or October. It just isn't right. Applesauce post coming on Thursday. If television is going to be so compelling, I wonder if there is any way they can do an episode on financial investing or even making your own bed.

And when Ethan tires of applesauce, or the apples tire out themselves, Sid can offer a lesson there too. Check out the video on apples decaying located http://pbskids.org/sid/#/VideoPlayer-Its_Not_Scary_Its_Decayed .

Yeah- good point. When are we going to see Sid sit down and poop on the potty?? Then we can talk all about the science of pooping. I would TIVO that and how to make your own bed. Get it on the list! :)

Loved the video.
