or free cup day, depending on the child.
ben and jerry’s free cone day was providential in its timing. because today was one of those days that i earned no points in the gracious/loving/kind/patient mother department. it was a day where by 4:30 the pattern of me losing my cool/asking for forgiveness/losing my cool/asking for forgiveness was getting old for everybody. and then i spy an email from my friend who lovingly passed on the news that today was indeed free cone day. so a long ride along the beach and free ice cream of their choice put me back in their good graces.
sanctification always goes better with ice cream.
