1 Bump

WWYD? protocol

my 2 kids + 1 neighbor friend have been playing outside (chalk, hopscotch, etc) for a looooooooong time. I decide to surprise them w/ Drumstick ice cream cones, I have 3 left in the box. I bring them outside (clearly visible in my hands for all to see) and to my surprise there had been a 2nd friend w/ them the entire time, out of my line of sight and my husband (near them mowing lawn) didn't mention. I do not have enough for all 4 super sweet kids and they're ALL wide eyed and smiling at me, excited as can be. What is a non socially anxious Mom supposed to do next?

  • I'd say whoops, sorry, I didn't see ______ and don't have enough, then go put them back in the freezer and find another treat.

  • The 2 guests get 1 and your youngest child (or least understanding) gets 1. Then you find another treat for your other child.
    Then slap your dh later.

    Just curious....what DID you do?
