Bony Mama

I was helping my daughter study last night.  I parked myself on the ground, next to her bed and started quizzing her.  For some odd reason, she decided my leg would be a good resting place for her head.  She plopped it down on my shin.

"Ow!" she complained.  "Mom, what the heck?  Why is your leg so hard?"

"It's called a bone.  You clunked your head on my bone."

She made a face.  "My legs aren't like that.  I have some meat on my bones!  You're too skinny!"  She grabbed my leg.  "Look, Mom.  You're nothing but a skeleton!"

I laughed.  "No, I'm not.  But if you think so, then what do you recommend I do about it?"

"Eat more ice cream!"

(Now that's something I can live with!)

  8. She had a good suggestion and you could put all kinds of things on your ice cream like whipped cream, sprinkles, coconut... The possibilities are endless.

  9. Eat more ice cream. Very good advice.

    That's something I still want to learn to make at home, ice cream. Have you seen the costs lately, and how small the containers are. AND, some of them aren't even real ice cream. Ugh.
