I think they won't do that again

Why are these 3 happy faces eating ice cream with chocolate syrup?
While these 3 look completely miserable?

It's because the first 3 jumped in the van when I told them it was time to leave the park.
The last 3 kept playing....and playing.....and playing....
(Meadow was at school.)
Yes, I made them sit and watch the ice cream eating extravaganza.
And, I *may have* mercilessly carried on and on about just how delicious it was.

Right now, they are scrubbing and vacuuming the very van they were so reluctant to climb into while the ice cream eaters are playing.

I'm sorry kids.
These are important lessons to learn.

Sometimes being a mom is really hard.
Thinking of ways to get through to them is not always easy.
And other times, it's ridiculously simple.
Like today.
I can't help but laugh.

Yes! That's when you pull up your blog and say, "Hey, remember when ..." ;)
