Did I mention ice cream? Christa-coffee with double chocolate sauce, Caleb-chocolate with no sauce. I thought I was going to let them eat ice cream Any Time They Wanted. I thought I was going to let them eat ice cream until they couldn’t eat even one more bite of ice cream. But I was wrong. As is Always the case with kids, they will outlast you. On a couple of occasions I had to say ‘no, you just have to eat some food before you can have more ice cream’.
And we did eat food. Every meal like this, with only a few exceptions.
Breakfast: Room Service delivers a plain bagel with margarine for Christa, a huge pile of bacon for Caleb and then we get ice cream.
Lunch: From Deck Service Christa gets a plain pizza, Caleb gets a plain hamburger and then we get ice cream.
Dinner: From Room Service or from Deck Service Christa gets a plain pizza, Caleb gets a plain hamburger and then we get ice cream.
During the day we get ice cream many times from the ice cream bar and at night before bed we get ice cream from room service. One time Christa went to get ice cream for herself and Caleb. She asked for coffee with double chocolate sauce and a chocolate with chocolate sauce. The guy at the ice cream bar said ‘but your brother doesn’t get chocolate sauce’. They knew.
