Ice Cream is Sweet to Eat

Megan's Favorite Sweet Treat

When Megan was younger, she hated ice cream.  It was far too cold for her little mouth!  Then one day she woke up and realized how truly good it is.  And since that day, she comes into the kitchen at the same time every evening asking for a bowl of her favorite sweet treat.  What's funny is it's always BEFORE dinner.  I think if you were to look at the clock, it'd be the exact same time each day.  She's scary like that. Megan has an amazing internal clock!  I don't know how she does it!  Anyway, back to the ice cream. She will also eat it year round!  It doesn't matter if it's minus 30 degrees outside {thank heavens we left that kind of weather behind in Boston 5 years ago}, this little princess of mine has to have it!  The other day was hysterical!  While I was in the living room cleaning, I heard the freezer door open.  Then the silverware drawer.  I knew instantly what was going on.  As I walked into the kitchen this is the scene I found.  A half gallon of Dryers ice cream sitting on the table.  At the other end, Megan was sitting with an entire container of Ben & Jerry's open in front of her.  Spoon in hand.  Getting her fix. Before dinner of course. When I asked her this question, "Megan!  What are you doing?"  Her response was priceless!  She said, very clearly I might add, "I don't know!"  I died!  I couldn't stop laughing.  She had been caught red handed and she knew it!  Megan loves her ice cream!  I have to admit, ice cream is also one of my favorite sweet treats!  So I don't blame her!  Megan is a little girl who not only knows what she likes, but is a creature of routines.  This is just one example!  I love you, sweet Megan for always doing the cutest things!  You are sure great at making your family smile and laugh!!  Please excuse me everyone.  I need to stop writing now so that I can go get myself a bowl of cookies and cream ice cream.  I'm with Megan on this one.  Ice cream is the perfect sweet treat!

A Sweet Ride to School

Guess what she sees??


Arriving to Pick Up Megan & Take her to School

One thing I love about Megan is how excited she gets over some of the most simple things in life!  How many children are really this overjoyed to hop aboard a bus every morning at the crack of dawn to go to school? Megan is! And everyday it's the same level of enthusiasm and excitement!   Megan LOVES riding the BUS to school.  Let me say that again. Megan LOVES riding the school BUS!!  And when I say, LOVE, I mean, love, love, LOVE!  The girl wakes up every morning while it's still dark to catch the bus at 6:15 {really, in my opinion, it's too early.  But not to her.  She just goes with the flow. Another thing I'm thankful for with my sweet Megan}. Once she's dressed and ready for school, we open the blinds and wait patiently for it to pull up. And when it finally does, oh, boy!  It's quite the site to behold. Megan quickly throws her backpack on and RUNS out the door to get on.  Seriously.  She runs.  She can't wait.  She adores the bus and going to school!   When Megan comes home from school everyday, she heads straight upstairs to play "school" in her bedroom.  I'm thankful that she finds the bus and school so enjoyable.  This is currently her favorite book to read.  Are you surprised?

Sweet Love

During breakfast my husband, Gary and I were talking about how Megan thrives on this one thing~LOVE! She is the happiest child if you give her LOTS of it.  Along with that, there are two other things which make Megan very happy.  Hugs and Kisses.  If you ask her for a hug or kiss~she will gladly share without hesitation.  Actually, now that I think about it, you don't even have to ask Megan for love and affection~she gives it freely.  In fact, she blows kisses to everyone, whether she knows them or not!

Our conclusion: 
 Megan is a LOVE SPONGE!!
