Unashamed

 

That’s right.

I know I have a good 20 pounds to lose.

And I am ashamed of that.

 

But I am not ashamed to be thoroughly convinced of this:

When you’re going to have a little something called ice cream…

that diet stuff just won’t do.

(Seriously, does anyone else think that the stuff tastes like frozen Moon Sand?)

 

And as an added argument… that “healthy” stuff is messier.

 

Yep.

 

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Just like the diet ice cream sandwich stuck all over Itty Bit.

Wait – it’s 9:45 PM… whose idea was this anyway?

 

GRANDMA’S!!!!!!

Lesson #1:  Objects in lens are stickier than they appear.

Lesson #2:  Fake sugar does funny things to 5-year olds.

Because he sure doesn’t come by this naturally.

 

(oh hush)

No kidd'n.. the diet ice cream is gritty. yuk. I suppose if it tastes nasty, you eat less of it, therefore it is "diet ice cream". And the sandwiches... what DO they make the chocolate part with? I swear it has the consistency of tacky glue. I just get the Edy's Fruit bars (pineapple or coconut... YUM!) and am done with it. At least they're tasty....

Grandma. What were you thinking? DIET ice cream? At 9:45PM?

Tonight, REAL ice cream at MIDNIGHT!

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Fantastic! Just fantastic!

Tina said...

We always crave ice cream late at night around our house. And the Daddy works for the best ice cream company in the SouthEast!!
Was that a skinny cow by the way?
G LOVES those, but they are quite the mess.

Hasn't Momma P started school yet? She should have time for these kinds of shenanigans. Tell her to get back to her homework and leave Itty Bit alone :) (Love you Momma P!)

And get rid of that diet stuff - if you need ice cream, you need the REAL stuff.

stephanie said...

ahahaha I'm on a diet too {still hanging on to almost 30 preggo lbs!} and eating ice cream as I type this. and not just any ice cream but browned butter with rum and candied bacon ice cream! :)

Tina said...

It doesn't matter how much I'm cutting out fats and sugar, I will always eat REAL ice cream! None of that diet stuff for me! The after taste is awful in itself!!!

Saimi said...

I so can't wait to be a Grandma, just look at all the fun they get to have!!

Alycia (Crowley Party) said...

I agree! I mean if you are going to eat it, you may as well EAT IT!

Amy said...

I'm totally with you on eating the good stuff -- no matter what time of night it is.

Pam Bowers said...

Mom's!!!!!

Just remember...these are photo's you can use to embarrass him with when he starts dating...in 35 years or so. ;-)

Tamar SB said...

Goodness gracious, he is adorable! And I once heard a study that showed the non-fat-diet ice cream is worse for you b/c it doesn't leave you full and you have way more than you should! So have one regular ice cream and be healthier for it!!

sara said...

I love it!!!

and I whole heartedly agree....no fake ice cream for me!!!

Mama4Real said...

I like the Dreyer's Slow Churned stuff a lot, it's got less fat in it, and the Skinny Cow snacks aren't TOO bad, but once you taste the real stuff? You realize what you've been missing!!!

Katie said...

Oh gross. I am not a fan of diet anything. {I personally like my food to taste good. ;)}

But those photos are hilarious!!! :)

RaD said...

Brandi said...

Diet ice cream? Ick! But, those photos? ADORABLE! Oh, and 20 lbs my foot... we've all seen pictures of ya, girl. You can't get away with that one.

He & Me + 3 said...

Oh those Grandmas. My mom is always grounded & I might even put her on probation for some of the things she lets my kids eat & do. LOL! At least you got cute pictures out of the late night diet snack :)

Emmy said...

Lol! Typical grandma getting them all sugared up right before bed

Anonymous said...

All grandsons look a litle cuter with chocolate on their face!

robin said...

I so agree with you on the taste of diet ice cream...yuk! I've been fighting the same 20 pounds for 2 yrs. (up, down, up, etc) so when I really want some ice cream, I go for the good stuff! Just loved the pics of Itty Bit! Wow...he's growing so fast!

Presley family said...

LOVE It!!! I am with you girl!!!! I need to loose 20 easily but really..... I will stick with frozen yogurt. As usual Itty bitty is just too darn cute for words!!!

Together We Save said...

Oh I love these pictures!!

Buckeroomama said...

Really? They have DIET ice cream? Don't think that ever made its way over this way...

Regardless, that face? Is absolutely precious. (But you know that.) =)

Beth Zimmerman said...

I'm with Bill! :)

Angie Vik said...

Very cute pictures. Your son's face is so expressive. Sure looks like he'll give you a run for the money as I'm certainly seeing a lot of mischief in those cute eyes of his.

Shana said...

LOL, eeeewwwww, bet that was fun to clean up.
