It’s A Dirty Job

One of the best things about being a parent is having to take generous licks of your child’s ice cream cone to keep the messy drips to a minimum.


It’s a dirty job but someone’s gotta do it.


  • That hair! The messy mouth! The bikini! The eyes! I adore this picture.

    You are brave to give A her own cone.

    (and *sigh* I wish M’s hair would grow already!)

  • you don’t fool me, girly girl! you wanted your kid’s ice cream cone from the beginning! i could see it in your eyes!

  • You sure are getting the hang of that camera! Adorable picture! I really need to figure out how to use mine.

  • Look at that hair! Avelyn is so adorable! Good thing for dripping cones!!!

  • What a cute picture! I feel like we have been missing all of the fun with this awful flu.

  • love that picture…it sums up summer perfectly!

  • Perfect picture.

    I still can’t imagine eating a kids slobbery cone…perhaps I will develop that ability once Reid gets a bit older!

  • Amen!!

  • I so can not do that!! Something about a melting dripping cone that was half slobbered on by my own child…I just can’t do it!! I can’t lick off a used spoon either. I get my hubby to do it.

  • You know the three pounds mentioned in your previous post? If this is how you got them it’s well worth it. And we all know that food eaten standing up doesn’t count.

  • Just found your blog. So far it’s very funny and cute! :)
