I took Mazzy for ice cream last week and she started crying because, get this— HER SCOOP OF ICE CREAM WAS TOO BIG.
Nothing like a child ruining the moment you decide to reward them.
I found myself channeling Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own with something along the lines of, "There's no crying while eating ice cream!!!!"
In reality, there's no crying as long as I put half of her ice cream in one cup and half of her ice cream in another cup with the cone on top. Then we can all calm down and enjoy ourselves. Well, at least until Mazzy drips some on her leg and acts like now she has to have it amputated.
Anyone else really annoyed with their three-year-old right now?
Inspired by Ninja Mom's Cry Baby Captions, and to make myself feel better, I thought it would be hilarious if I did an entire post of kids crying over ice cream.
Including the devastated kid up top, here are 19 TOTALLY RATIONAL reasons for kids to cry over ice cream. Maybe you've experienced one or two?
Next time, just skip the treat and give them a vegetable. Crying over broccoli is at least something we can all understand.
Got a horrific tale of ice cream gone wrong? Please share below.
