Summertime in our house typically means filling up the freezer with every popsicle and flavor of ice cream known to man in an attempt to beat the North Carolina heat. However, if you live in the south, you know two things:
- There's no getting around this heat.
- Enjoying ice cream on a sunny day can be a messy experience, especially if you have a toddler.
Of the three of us, Little J had the best time. We set up on the balcony so we could soak up the sun and have a yummy break in the process. Cue the melting of the ice cream. Even though we had bowls, it was still a messy experience. But the other thing that motherhood has taught me, is that most times, the messiest experiences are typically the ones worth remembering.
Like any dotating/overprotective father, Mr. A likes to capture moments like these for future blackmail for Little J's future potential suitors. Poor kid, she has no idea what she's in for...
We've decided to make ice cream parties a normal part of our summertime routine. With a view like the one we now have, we'd be crazy if we didn't. Especially if the clean-up process is as easy as it was this time around.
Which brings me to the final lesson that motherhood has taught me, when something makes your life easier, buy it in bulk-- especially if there is a sweet coupon to go along with it. So, before you head out to the stores to stock up on your spring and summertime sweets, be sure to print out this coupon to and save $.55 off your next Wet-Nap purchase while supplies last. As the queen of all things frugal, I picked mine up at Walmart, where the prices always low. So be sure to check out your nearest Walmart for Wet-Naps.
