Bananas are a nice healthy food, so I get a bunch every time I go shopping. Both my children like bananas, though Kyle more so than Megan. When I get a new bunch of bananas I have to watch that boy like a hawk or he's constantly up on the table stealing them out of my fruit basket. There have been days when he's managed to steal/eat as a many as 4 bananas. And as you probably assumed, the dirty diapers following are NOT pleasant.
Well, today I discovered another, unexpected banana thief in our midst. I went down to change the laundry, and since I had the house well picked up and (I thought) no food was left out that would tempt Hemi to get onto the table, I decided it would be okay to leaveHemi out of her crate while I was downstairs for a minute or two. I came back up and all was quite, but when I got closer I realized Hemi had stolen a banana from my fruit basket and had already eaten half of it, peel and all. It had never occurred to me that she might find the fruit appealing, though I guess I should have known better since she eats things far worse such as pencils, dirty socks, and her own poop. . .
