Rules I Make Up About Ice Cream

It'll wait.

@postaday 347, #postaday2011.

1. Do not ruin my night. 
This is what I tell my children when they do not let up on the bickering. This is their clue that they might not get ice cream.

2. No ice cream until after your shower.
This is what I tell my children because they might still fight after ice cream and before the shower.

3. No ice cream if I have to tell you to take your shower more than once.
WTPho? Do you not enjoy being clean?

4.  No ice cream even if you beg and plead after I’ve told you no with good reason. 
I know every trick in the book. Scram.

5. Ice cream is not guaranteed nightly.
Really? I have to tell you this?

  1. Was just in Safeway-Aikahi Park yesterday looking at ice cream. Sticker shock to say the least. Even when it’s on sale. Might have to sparingly dole it out by the teaspoon here.
