Apple or Pear?

Yesterday I was having a discussion with a friend- one that Maddie happened to walk in on the tail end of.

We were talking about how I am pear shaped (my waist is always- regardless of my size- a size smaller than my rear) and my friend is apple shaped.

Later in the afternoon, while on the way to dance, Maddie and I were discussing that women are either apple or pear shaped. We discussed some of the ladies we knew and if they were apple or pear.

She was quiet for a second and then she said.................

So Mom, what am I? An apple or a pear?

I laughed and said................

Oh honey, you are a still a child. You are not yet a fruit. But more than likely you will be a pear when you grow up- just like me.

She was quiet again for a bit and then said................

When I grow up, I don't want to be an apple or a pear. I want to be a banana.

I laughed and said.....................

Me too sweetie, but unfortunately- that is not an option.
Banana is not an option.

PS So what about you? Are you an apple or a pear?


  1. I'm more of a pear...only because there's not much "roundness" upstairs. ;o) lol

    I want to be a banana too! lol

  2. I'm an apple - I'd gladly give up my tummy and have more junk in the trunk! :)

  3. I am a big ole pumpkin! Tis the season and all that! I am the great pumpkin, Charlie Brown! heehee

  4. Put me in the apple pile.. or as Becca said.. a Pumpkin!!LOL Yep, that's me.I think I'd like being a banana, too, Maddie!!LOL

  5. I am a pear! Altho, I believe that I have seen women that are bananas!! I know some that have had up to 7 kids and are so tall and lean, you can tell the weather forecast by looking between their legs!!! HA!
    There ain't no sun a'shinin' between my thighs!!!
