A quick note to your future self

20140711-072556-26756055.jpg
Daughter,

No, I didn’t let you eat ice cream last night.

But by the time you read this, you should know that it wasn’t because you didn’t eat any dinner.

It was because you are (were) too young to learn that ice cream can be a meal all by itself.

That knowledge is reserved for Friday nights and broken hearts.

Now finish your dinner so we can have ice cream.

Dad
