Isn't funny how little things will remind you of your childhood? The other day I was reminded about random after school treats we used to get as kids. My mom picked us up every day from school and on occasion she would spring a surprise on us. One of my all-time favorites was " lets go to McDonalds and get an ice cream cone". IM In!! I rarely got a cone though. I opted for the equally delicious Butterscotch Sundae. Nothing can beat the vanilla soft serve covered in warm, gooey butterscotch and topped with a healthy dose of peanuts. Mom would usually get the cone. It was funny to watch her race to catch the drips as she drove home. I guess licking an ice cream cone is easier than scooping from a cup while driving. Either way it was the perfect little treat to finish off a long day at school. I never experienced a bad childhood. It was fantastic to be honest. My parents are selfless and did everything for us. I know sometimes they think they didn't do enough because we didn't have a lot but what they don't realize is little things like this stick out to us kids and it makes us appreciate them even more.
So today I endulged in my childhood memory and got a $1 Butterscotch Sundae. It was heavenly!
