#WickedWednesdays – Orange peel tantrum

I wouldn’t let her peel the orange herself…

Orange peeling tantrum

To be fair, I did, but she removed the tiniest bits and then stuck her fingers in pulling bits of orange back out, that I thought she’d just end up eating skin and making a MASSIVE mess.

Oh dear, that was the start of today’s ‘fun’. Tired toddler fun.

If you didn’t see my post on Instagram of the lovely mouldy oranges in question, here it is… I bought these on Monday 10th, and this morning at 11.30, when I went to give one to H they were like this…


To clarify, I picked one for H that looked ok from the middle and hadn’t touched that yucky mould. If I hadn’t given her one we’d have had an even bigger tantrum than the orange peel tantrum. Mummy MUST pick battles carefully!


Happy #wickedwednesday folks!

    My boys do this, but then when offered oranges round other peoples houses they will quite happily allow other people to peel the orange for them!

    I hate it when fruit goes off really quickly. Makes you wonder what they do to them sometimes!

      It’s soooo annoying isn’t it. You’d expect all those oranges to last more than 24 hours! I feel bad I should have let H have two on Monday when she wanted another ?
