It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Way to go, dad!

Great moments in parenting, as reported by Emma, who is working at the local gelato store.

Dad and 6-ish-year-old son enter the store. Son begins to choose the flavours he wants. When cashier asks what size, dad says “medium”, for both gelatos, his and his son’s.

Son commences to throw a fit. He wants LARGE, not medium. Large, large, LARGE!

Dad pauses, looks at son, and says slowly, in a low, measured, wondering voice, “Are you complaining about gelato??”

Son sits down and shuts up.

And eats his medium gelato.
