My friend Kathy and I recently took our group of almost three-year olds (she has a matching set) to eat ice cream. Her daughter Dylan looks up from her bowl of bubble gum gelato and says, “Mommy, I really like eating with a little shovel.”
We give each other that “Huh?” glance, but then simuleously look down, and burst out laughing.
Sure enough, we were literally shoveling ice cream into our mouths. Perfect.
