The other day I showed my children that you can eat the outside layer of a baby carrot and find a little core that runs through the center. Since that conversation, every time Mim eats her "crunchy carrots" she shaves away the outside like a very precise bunny and shows me the center.
Zaya, who isn't particularly fond of crunchy carrots, (He only likes "squishy carrots") decided that it looked like so much fun he had to try one. So he asked his father this evening,
"Dad, do you eat the outside first, and then the spinal cord?"
Daddy explained the problem with his terminology and then gave Zaya his carrot. He's currently in the bathtub eating it while holding his nose.
At least he's eating it. I'm not going to complain, however gruesome the thought of munching on a carrot's spinal cord may be.
