Motherhood means ... No. 26

Minus two at 9:30am. Brilliant, blinding sunshine sparkling across the snow.

Motherhood means ...
...being surprisingly, inordinately, almost-doing-the-macarena-in-public-ly elated to have succeeded in finding gelato for two spoiled brats in an out-of-season tourist town in mid-December in the snow. 

Now I'm off to buy the T-shirt!

Our kiddos spoiled....never.

I commented just today to my neighbor after I drove in with Chickfila food for my daughters lunch....she can't just go in the kitchen and make herself a peanut butter sandwich. Nooooo I have to get in the car and drive to the drive-thru....

Video your happy dance for us and post.

Is ice cream difficult to find then?

The Swedes eat even more ice cream in the winter than in summer ... well, almost. You can see them munching on popsicles even when it's minus minus outside!

Hi LadyFi -- well at this time of year the artisan gelato shops for which Italy is famous are all closed. And even the newsagents have emptied their freezers of brand-name ice creams. Finally I remembered that a nearby pizzeria offered ice-cream cones as part of their childrens' menu and dodged in to ask...All under time pressure - AJ was due back at the school kitchens to be taught how to make Christmas biscotti, within 15 minutes!
