Bobbing for apples

William was sitting on my lap eating "worms" (spaghetti) for supper and we were watching Little Bear.  On the episode they are having a harvest party and one of the activities at the party was bobbing for apples.  William started talking about bobbing for apples and that he uses his hands. 

I wondered if maybe at some point at his Mom's he had bobbed for apples and he was speaking from experience.  I asked him when he had bobbed for apples before but he said he hadn't played but saw it in a book at preschool and the kids in the book were putting their faces in the water to try and catch apples. 

I asked him why he would use his hands and not his face and he said it was because he didn't like the shower and he doesn't like to get his face wet.  It's a strange thing when you realize your child can associate something like bobbing for apples in a cartoon to the fact that we would have to use another method because he doesn't like getting his face wet.

They really do grow up too fast.
