My 5 year old daugher likes to snack on cucumbers these days. At first my wife would peel them sorta and dice them up into pieces and my daughter didn't like that. The other day she asked for a cucumber, my wife put it on the table and went to get a knife to dice it up. Before she could do this my daugher snatched the cucumber off the table and ran into the other room saying:
"Leave my cucumber and me alone!"
(that is to say, she didn't want Mommy to cut it up.)
I laughed. She better not be telling me this when she gets older(grin).
