When I asked my kids what they loved best about summer, I heard their answer loud and clear: ice cream! Every year, come June, my kids become ice cream monsters. It’s like a switch gets flipped or something. They’d like nothing better than to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner – diarrhea be damned. Most days it’s an after dinner treat that we all look forward to.
The husband and I have strong opinions about our favourite ice cream flavours. I’ve had a love affair with Mocha Almond Fudge for years, and his hands down favourite is Mint Chocolate Chip. The kids however are quite promiscuous with their ice cream enjoyment. They’ll take any flavour, any time, any way that they can. One of these days I’ll get all gourmet on their ass and make my own (just like Laura, Erika and Jill do) but for now we’ll make do with what the supermarket’s got.
My only concern is whether the ice cream is killing brain cells. Case in point: A quick photo opp of them eating ice cream turned into a game of “who has the best ice cream beard”. They’re either losing brain cells with each lick or these kids just don’t take my camera seriously.
Is ice cream YOUR favourite summer time treat? Tell me your flavour of choice. I’ve got another 2 months of keeping these boys satisfied and there are a ton of flavours we haven’t checked out yet.
