Ice Cream Trumps the Texas Longhorns

Hook 'Em!

Meet Soccer Boy. He loves ice cream so much that he started a tradition when we join his family at the beach every summer. Ice cream for breakfast.

Yes, you read that right. The kid loves ice cream soooooooooo much that he was even willing to stop wearing his beloved Texas Longhorns T-shirt long enough for his Mom to wash it...as long as she provided him with a cone for breakfast, first. Of course, that first cone evolved into a week-long, annual deal. Well, ice cream contains calcium, doesn't it?

I think Soccer Boy's record for this particular T was 8 days in a row, but who's counting? He got his ice cream & his Mom got a clean T-shirt. He might have even consented to a bath after he was done with the cone.

Those sweet gals over at 5 Minutes for Mom put out the word recently about an ice cream photo contest. The Grand Prize Winner will win ice cream for a year ~ plus all the accoutrements. So I am shamelessly...SHAMELESSLY...putting my nephew on the Front Lines. To win a photo contest. But you know I love yummy deals like this, right?

And don't you think this Snap is pretty Superior? Those big blue eyes. That tousled hair. The little drip coming off the bottom of the cone. No wonder the T was a candidate for the Clorox!

But it's all about the ice cream. And Soccer Boy, of course. I promise to share. On my honor. The Girl Scout Oath & all that janx.

And speaking of photo contests, don't forget to vote for Ella Numera Dos...Thank you for your support!

Cute photo!

Confession: When I lived in Oklahoma (yes I was ages 0-9) I used to have ice cream and cereal for breakfast (you know, instead of milk and cereal, of course!). Yum! Actually... now that youve reminded me about it Im thinking I might try tat again ;)

My mother has ice cream for breakfast. She has also been known to order dessert first in a restaurant and hit the dessert table first at a picnic. Dad eats pie for breakfast and argues that it is no different than a danish. I guess you can't really argue with him, there. Where did I develop bad eating habits? It's a big freakin' mystery...

Would you still love me if you found out I was an Aggie for a year? 'Cause if you won't, forget I said anything...

Ice cream for breakfast sounds like the best idea ever. And it's pretty hard to trump next morning pizza.

In junior high I had a friend named Mary. I spent the nite at her house a few times and I loved going there. Her mother was French and had been raised with having pastry for breakfast. She used to bake the most delectable cakes! And most times when I spent the nite there, that's what we'd eat for breakfast!

Oh that is a cute picture! My brother went through this as a kid - clothes wise at least. My mom would wash the shirt when he went to bed at night

Love the barter system...Will have to keep this in mind. LOL. :) Ice cream for breakfast is a powerful tool.

That's so funny! I just wrote a story where the kid wants ice cream for breakfast!

My mom never let me have ice cream for breakfast. I had to wear a Longhorn shirt, too. I got jipped!

I LOVE the idea of ice cream for breakfast!!!! I think that's a great trade - dirty t-shirt for ice cream. Hope my boys don't come up with that idea!
