Desperation!!


So today I had to run to 2 different beauty supply stores. These stores are not for children. There are signs even. So in my desperation to keep my three monkeys happy I stopped by the Dairy Queen. I know what you are thinking. (She is Crazy) You are right. As the nice Dairy Queen lady was handing me out 3 of the giantist Small vanilla cones I had ever seen. I said "Oh my gosh I am nuts" the Dairy Queen lady must have thought so to as she handed me a giant stack of napkins. As I handed Monkey #3 his ice cream he totally freaked out. It was just too big for him. WHAT! An ice cream cone that is to big. Are you kidding me! I had to have the lady scoop half of it off before he would accept it. Sometimes I wonder what the heck is up with those kids.
So as I am driving I am trying really hard to not look into the back seat. I just knew what was going to happen. But after a few minutes I couldn't help it, I just had to look.
So who can tell me WHY oh WHY little children cannot eat their ice cream cone in a symmetrical way. Why oh Why do they only eat one side? This is one of those questions we mothers ask and I don't think we will ever know the answer.
Anyway the only one doing that was little monkey #3 and once I pointed out that he needed to eat the other side too he was fine. I am a proud mother to tell you that I only had a few little drops of ice cream in my car and Monkey #1 cleaned them right up. It was a historic day in the history of Ice Cream Eating.

I am just giggling because when I think of your family and cars, I think of the time that you pulled up to mom's house in Brando's little truck. I adult, four kids, and two dogs got out. That is when husband started singing the circus song when you pull up.

good idea to not look back. And why can't the lady at Dairy Queen understand SMALL. I mean I just need the cone full and a little over the top. No mountains of icecream needed!
