Problem Solver

Jane looked at me, strawberry ice-cream ear to ear and neck to nose and said, “Mom, will you lick my nose off?”

Unperturbed with getting “no” for answer she took her sweaty little hand, smeared it all up and down her face, over her nose, held it out and said, “Well, then will you lick my hand?”

Then, still un-bothered by my refusal to lick anything, promptly wiped off her sticky hands on her car seat, gave me the half eaten, and now unwanted, ice cream cone and ran off to play.Jane at the top of the slide


So you see, it’s really not so bad that I forgot the napkins.

I was just helping Jane exercise her problem solving skills.

    I literally start feeling the onset of a panic attack anytime Lilly comes close to ice cream >.< I'm sort of more than a tad finicky about cleanliness so that doesn't help..
    You're a calmer mom than me 😛

      Well we all have our things. Me, I have an issue with ketchup, I was just working on a blog post about it. Basically I’ll let anyone be covered in ice cream but a drop of ketchup makes my skin crawl!

  2. This is why it’s always good to have a dog handy.

    One of the things that keeps me coming back here (even though I’m online far, far less than ever before) is your writing. You always draw me in, and you always entertain. But then again, you have some of your own built-in entertainment in the family 🙂

      This is one of the nicest comments I’ve ever had, thank you! (and yes I do have some pretty good sources for entertainment around!)
