How to blow your three-year-old’s mind

sconeAsk him if he wants to help make scones.

Eyes widen. 

The almost imperceptible shifting, bouncing at the knees. 

Small hands reach out for your face, making contact in a half-affectionate, half-assaulting double-cheek slap. 

The follow-up question, breathless and pleading:

Mama … ice cream scones?

No,  just regular ones, of course, but now I am on the hunt, boy.  On. The. Hunt.

  1. Oooh, I totally want an ice cream scone too! Do they make those?

  2. Wonderful little piece — I was right there with you watching the eyes light up. Do you think he was seeing ice cream *CONES* in his happy brain?
