Autumn brings the best winter fruit: mandarin oranges. The boys love them and quickly learned to peel them themselves. If they don’t want to eat their breakfast in the morning, I know I can get them to eat at least something by giving them their new favourite fruit.
So I was quite surprised when I came home this morning, after dropping them at school, to find two only half eaten mandarin oranges, hidden in their toys.
Cheeky little ones. Had they been fooling me all along? No, that was not possible, I have seen them devour this fruit many times.
They probably got distracted and then forgot, I reasoned. So I grabbed the fruit and put a piece in my mouth. JAIKS. It was the sourest mandarin orange I have ever tasted. No wonder they left it…
