Breakfast? Lunch?



It's 2:00pm, we've been for a walk, played at the park, stopped to say hello to great grandpa, and I've realized that we have not had breakfast or lunch, again! Except for those 4 Oreo cookies! So with great weather outside and wanting to be out and enjoying it, I tell Macey to load up, we're going somewhere special! As we turn off onto the Bluebell road she gets a huge smile on her face and shouts for "ice cream!" Hey why not? It's not like we get ice cream everyday for breakfast and lunch, just every other day! Macey has enjoyed the little trips up to Bluebell this summer to play at the park and then indulge on some hard ice cream from the Bluebell store across the road, and if grandma's around then Caleb gets to enjoy a few licks also. My children may not get all the protein they need, but dairy we've got covered! Did I mention that we've been to the park TWICE (2) today. Macey would live at the park if I let her, and spend the whole time on the swings! When we came back home Macey grabbed her shake coupons from Rocky's and asked ever so nicely if we could go get ice cream, I'm not that nice.
P.S. As I write this Macey has crowded in on my chair space and is trying to do my hair, I'm telling her for the 100th time, "Macey seriously I really don't want my hair done today," she replies, "seriously Mom, you do want you hair done today." Who can argue with that!

I always eat a late lunch and then look at my kids like they are crazy when they're asking for dinner at 6pm :-) Ice-cream is a food group at our house

Cole would love you for his mom. He would love his 'navilla' ice-cream and playing at the park 2x in a day! You are a rock-star mom.

What a fun mom! Next time you go to the park, call me because McKinlee LOVES the park and loves playing with friends even more! I like the company too. :)

Hey Sue just wondering why you haven't taken me to Bluebell to get ice cream, now I guess I know the answer, where are your priorities girl??!!

I would like to know how you could forget breakfast or lunch. I might forget to feed it to my kids - but I NEVER forget it for myself. You are an AWESOME mom if you will take your kids to the park - and even MORE AWESOME (if thats possible) to SWING your kids at the park. Just wondering: Why do you go to Bluebell?

I am sure Macey will want to hang out with you when she is 16..you've already built that foundation and are continuing to build it. You are already the coolest, and funnest mom around!
