Leaving, I asked Zorro, "Will you give mommy a kiss?"
He leans in for a kiss, stops short, then throws his head back saying, "NO! I want ICE CREAM!"
He says "ice cream" in an upbeat, hopeful manner with a wry little smile. His head is still leaned back as he's looking in my eyes.
I'm tempted. That face ALMOST got me to give him ice cream, but I WANT MY KISS!
I tell him,"Mommy's kisses are BETTER than ice cream."
He ponders this for a few seconds.
I'm sure I lost out to the ice cream.
THEN IT HAPPENS!
He leans in and puckers up.
I grab his sweet little face on both cheeks and kiss him smack on the lips, Zorro style.
Then I ask him," So is mommy's kiss better than ice cream?"
"BETTER than ice cream!" he exclaims,
Like ice cream
