Who can stand to eat like this...with the gooey melting ice cream slowly drip dropping down the side of your hand?
A TWO YEAR OLD.
My two year old, Henry.
And as a mama - I could easily have said, "Nope, let's not go there. It will be Waaaay too messy."
But by saying yes, I am given a moment to watch him totally enthralled and enjoying this summer treat.
My own ice cream cone tasted 10 times better enjoying it beside this little man.
He is joy.
He is ready for a fun summer of sticky fingers and a sticky belly.
And he has a mama who is vowing to say YES to a lot of summer adventures that might be too sticky or sandy or muddy or silly.
And once in a while I am so proud of the moment I capture with my camera.
So let's reflect...
Say yes to a summer treat and smile!
