Silliness over a Peach

I bought a peach over the weekend.  Little Miss has always enjoyed them.  So, I remembered it last night and said she could have it.  I cut it into slices, and we all took a piece.  Little Miss asked for the skin to be peeled off.  I told her the skin, with peaches, is very important because peaches are delicate and need the skin.  So, she promptly ate the peach like an orange slice - around the skin.  I told her that was fine.  Whatever she does, DO NOT EAT THE SKIN OF THE PEACH.  What did she do next?  She ate the peel.  She looked at me and said, "Mommy, did you see what I did?"  After every bite, I gave her mock horror as she ate more and more of the peel.  She ate it all, but instead of constant whining, the evening was filled with giggles.
