“Ice cream is happiness condensed.”
-Jessi Lane Adams
Do you remember your first swirly vanilla soft serve cone?
Mine seemed like it stretched too high.
No matter how quick I licked, before long it threatened to cascade down my arm.
Face covered in sweet sticky happiness condensed.
Content. Smiling. Messy.
Have you ever handed such an ice cream to a child?
It might be even better than the ice cream!
The Handsome Prince and Luc had a “man day”, complete with swimming and topped off by chocolate dipped ice cream cones.
With 4 ladies in the house, “man days” are necessary for their sanity.
“You have GOT to see this!” The Handsome Prince exclaimed the second he’s out of earshot of Luc.
He pulls out his phone and loads the pictures onto the laptop.
“I blame your ‘free to be you and me’ stuff for this.” he says with a grin.
Attack The Cone… Luc’s favorite way to enjoy.
Normal drippy cone
Clearly thinking about something…
Do your kids do stuff like this too?
I’ve never bothered to ask why he’s so moved to munch into the bottom or side of the cone.
I’m a little scared to know the answer.
He’s already committed so why not happily go for it!
Note: the hand/wrist full of ice cream…
He’s grabbed the ice cream, it’s melting down his arm as he’s happily chowing down.
So we’re all clear on the insanity that is my son.
Sometimes a little sticky is worth a bunch of sweet memories shared.
However you enjoy your ice cream this summer, be sure to take precautions before attempting to attack the cone.
