Iris is a big fan of fruit. Being mindful of allergy warnings, we’d been keeping her away from citrus and strawberries. But it’s citrus season, and about a week ago I bought a big bag of clementines for Carl’s lunches and snacking. And, after all, how bad could it be? She wanted it. Just a taste.
Iris and I ate pretty much the whole bag, with the only known side effect being a much more satisfactory poop schedule. Yay fiber. Yay hardy babies.
Besides being delicious, oranges are also endlessly entertaining as toys, and I have fished them out of her toy box multiple times now (there’s another one rolling around the back seat of the car that I never remember to grab). They also act as surrogate security blankets.
She is occasionally lured by flashier toys.
But in the end, it’s all about the orange.
