If given the chance, Tracen will carry an apple around with him.
It becomes like a friend, and each time he drops it and it rolls off, he goes and picks it up and usually it has rolled to something new and interesting for him to play with.
The only problem is that he doesn't really like swallowing apple peels and mostly just likes sucking the juice out of the apple pieces, resulting in bits of apple and apple peel everywhere
But it makes this little boy happy
And when he is happy - I am happy!
(Here is his apple with a collection of other goods he picked up along the way)
