Mission Accomplished

Conversation upon leaving the Zoo today and passing 
the strategically place Ice Cream Truck:

Avé:  Mommy, can we get some ice cream?

Me:  No.

Ben:  Mom, can we get some ice cream?

Me:  No.  ...Anyone else want to ask the same question and hope for a different answer?  Because that's the definition of insanity?  Anyone?

Avé:  Mommy, why other kids have ice cream and no us?

Me:  Because other kids have moms who are nicer than yours.

Jack:  Mom- those kids may have moms who are nicer than ours, but we have a mom who is funnier than theirs.

...That's all I was going for, folks.  Now I can die happy.
