just desserts

I know I just wrote a post recording some of the memorial things that Simon has said recently, but I can't NOT write these down.

Me: Simon, are you ready for some yummy apple crisp?
Simon: Yeah! Apple christmas!
(except it was more like "Chriskmus" because he kind of clicks his 's')

Me: Simon, would you like apple crisp or lemon pie?
Simon: Um... I want lemonade PILE!
(or rather, "melamade")

Yes, we do eat food other than dessert, it just so happens that I made an apple crisp this last Friday (with some of our delicious apples that we picked at a local orchard last week) that was gluten-free and dairy-free for Simon to make up for the fact that his older brother got to go to the church with our homeschooling friends and he didn't.  Then today -AFTER SPENDING 7+ HOURS AT THE GATINEAU HOSPITAL, AKA THE WORST HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM IN CANADA, ONLY TO GET AN ANTIBIOTIC THAT I'VE MOSTLY DECIDED NOT TO USE- I decided I needed a bit of a pick me up. In the form of lemon meringue pie, of course.

Of course.

Thus the two desserts.

And thus Simon's insistence on calling it pile instead of pie.

(I realize that that last "thus" doesn't really work there, but I choose to leave it. I am exercising my right to be grammatically incorrect.)


  1. I don't think you ever need an excuse for desserts and a pile of desserts is even better. I hate emergency rooms, they are rarely any good and unfortunately I've seen the inside of several in several countries.

  2. I agree with Kristin, a pile of desserts sounds like heaven to me!

  3. You guys are too funny! Had another crummy night with Andrew and your comments made me smile this morning. Thanks!
