Happiness is a Popsicle


After a hot day at the zoo, or a walk around the block, nothing cools and satisfies like a popsicle does. Actually, Ian's tastes have become more sophisticated and a popsicle will not do. We let him try a creamsicle, and there's no going back. He loves them so much, he can't help but scarf it down. Of course, there are consequences for being so hasty. Ian got to experience his first ever ice cream headache. His blood curdling scream let us know of his pain. After explaining what was happening and how to prevent it from happening again, he slowed down and ate smaller bites. We tried to get him to hold his tongue to the roof of his mouth to help ease the pain, but he didn't quite get the concept, although it was funny to watch him try.







One last bite...


















...all gone.


















Does Laurel enjoy her orange popsicle?





















The look on her face tells all...

Happiness truly is learning the rules of how not to get frozen brain!!! Ian has gone through another passage...He will remember...

Creamsicles...Yummm...

Here, an 'ice cream headache' is 'brain freeze'. I like it. Someone will be munching something cold, suddenly stop and moan, "Ugh. I've got Brain Freeze." Very descriptive, wouldn't you say?
