I had one tonight. As DS and I were at the pool, we heard the ice cream truck. So I told DS if we left "right now" we'd go home, get some money, and I'd buy him an ice cream cone. So he flies out of the pool and into his stroller and we walk the block home and wait on the front porch for the ice cream man. 10 minutes, 15 minutes, an eternity passes. And the ice cream man is nowhere to be seen. So, I pick up DS and try assuring him that Daddy and I will take him for an ice cream cone tomorrow when Daddy gets home from work. We go inside and strip off his pool diaper and swim trunks, strip off my suit, and start getting him ready for bed (all the while, he's repeating "ice cream cone, PINK ice cream cone" like a broken record). Suddenly, I hear the music from the ice cream truck. I throw on my pants, fly down the stairs (dropping a clean diaper on the stairs), grab a $5 and run out the front door. The ice cream truck pulls over and I ask for a pink cone for my baby. Then a drumstick for myself. As she's handing me the cones, she was kind of looking at me funny, but I just thought it was b/c I was a mess from the pool. So I take the cones, take my change, and turn around to see:
DS standing at the front door in all his little glory: his nose, bare tummy, AND his penis pressed up against the glass. Remember what they said on Seinfeld about the turtle and swimming? So anyway, there was my baby who wanted a pink cone w/his little parts on display for all to see, shrieking, "PINK ICE CREAM CONE!"
Yeah--I bolted up the lawn to give him his cone, and get his naked self away from the front door. ;)
