The ice cream woman at Emack and Bolio’s can’t quite make sense of my five-year-old daughter’s request for a Sprinkle Cone with Mommy Ice Cream.
Our family’s ice cream terminology goes back to my first date with my now wife.

Daddy ice cream is chocolate in chocolate (with more chocolate…).
It’s a language that makes sense in our kitchen.
