There are certain moments in a father’s life that make you stop and think… ‘wow… that child sure reminds me of me!’
Last night, after proudly proclaiming that if she finished her dinner she would get a treat, Susannah finished her dinner. Of course, now Daddy was somehow obliged to provide a treat (since Mom, who may well have kaiboshed the whole treat thing, was not there).
Anyway, I didn’t know what to get her, so I thought, ‘What would I like?’ The first thing that came to mind (as usual) was ice cream. So Daddy heads to the freezer, scoops some gelato into a bowl and returns it to Susie.
Within moments she was meticulously scraping the last of the melted ice cream from the bottom of the bowl. Once she had that done, she lifted the bowl to her face and licked the entire thing clean (as evidenced in the picture of the bowl which looks like it’s just come out of the dishwasher.
What was the result?
She was about as happy as her daddy would have been. Which actually did make her daddy pretty happy. 🙂
