You know that scene where the kid makes the ice cream man go through all 59 flavors of ice cream and then chooses vanilla? Yeah, that's pretty much my kids.
Every birthday, the birthday child gets to pick one or two flavors of ice cream. I always try to find a store that has a lot of flavors to choose from. Some of them make my mouth water: Peaches Delight, Cookies and Cream, Wild Berry, Rocky Road, Double Brownie Fudge, and so on. But almost every kid chooses the same flavor every time: Vanilla.
I could never understand it, until my oldest explained. He said they choose Vanilla because it's the flavor all the kids like. As altruistic as this is, I sometimes wonder: why do they always choose plain ol' chocolate for the second flavor?
What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
