Foods that start with the letter "X"
At Corbin's kindergarten orientation today, we were told that there is a project called "Eat the Alphabet" or something like that. Basically, each child chooses a letter and on the designated day, the child brings in a snack that begins with that letter. So I took Corbin over to the sign up sheet and we talked about what letters would be good and what he wanted. I gave him the pen and said, "Sign up for one." His pen moved up and down the page as he perused the options only to settle on...X. Before I could say anything he was writing his name on the line next to X. I nodded, not wanting to disppoint him, but X? What food starts with the letter X? All I have found is a rare fruit from Africa called a ximenia fruit. Not thinking that is available at the local supermarket. Aw, the joys of parenthood. But seriously, as soon as he wrote his name next to the letter X, my heart was pained by how much I love that boy. I can't believe he is his own little person...starting kindergarten.
