Earlier this week my daughter asked if she could have a banana for a snack. I thought that was a good choice since our brown bananas needed to be eaten--and because I don't eat brown bananas. As she was peeling the banana it broke off and fell on the table. It was a very tragic moment accompanied by a few tears. My daughter only likes to eat her banana while holding the peel. I was afraid this banana might go to waste. No way was I going to eat that brown banana. But with some quick thinking we created Pinocchio bananas with a little chocolate syrup and a toothpick. And like magic the tears went away and the banana got eaten up.
Phew! No brown bananas for me.
