While in line at Lickety Split* (local ice cream shop in Toledo), I was
Mom: "What do you want?"
Kid: "Chocolate with bubble gum!"
Mom: "No, come on now, that's gross."
Kid: "But I want to try it! It sounds good to me."
Mom: "NO, they don't even make that kind here."
I am not a Mom. I AM however a big fan of ice cream and creativity. Why wouldn't you let your little booger experiment and get what he wants especially if it's all just sugar anyway? I can see if you were trying to get him to eat a healthy dinner and he was ordering ice cream, but when it's a treat, why restrict the FLAVOR?
Trying not to judge, I just couldn't help but think she was squashing his imagination. Maybe it's the coolest new flavor out there? Ben and Jerry have come up with some crazy crap. Did you see that Bacon Chocolate bar I posted a while back?
Parents, enlighten me.
