<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> So, my oldest hears the ice cream truck, and, as usual, it is a race to get there before he can circle the court and drive off.<br>
My 5yo, of course, has on no pants (not being a pants-wearing kinda kid<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> ), so I grab up my 2yo, my cup of loose change, and run out the door, calling for my 5yo to put on his pants quick & come out to pick something.<br>
When I get outside, I see that the neighbor kids (about 6 teenage boys) have stopped the truck, so my 2yo and I walk to where he is and wait.<br>
I hear my front door slam, and look up to see not only my 5yo, but my 5 month old, 52lb black lab puppy racing for me! I tried to stop the puppy, but he bypassed me and went through the group of teens at light speed, racing around in circles, trying to tackle them and steal their ice creams.<br>
I was terrified of losing him - he knows to come, but with the excitement he wasn't listening very well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes"> , so he didn't come when I called. I threw down my cup of change (which spilled all over some guy's front lawn), and proceeded to chase my pup around the yards of my neighbors. After 3 times of diving at him as he went by, I finally got the little bugger!<br>
I got up, collar in hand, to see my 5yo picking up my change, my 2yo looking at the ice creams, and the teenage boys -laughing their butts off!<br>
I'm pretty much a keep-to-yourself kinda neighbor, so they really have only seen me when I walk for the mail.<br>
Well, now they've seen something else!

We don't have an ice cream truck here, but I still remember how exciting it was as a kid. And scary, worried we wouldn't get there in time. I used to have nightmares about it, actually. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

We did- my oldest got a Spongebob popsicle, and my youngest a Tweety-bird one.<br>
The ice cream truck is a huge thing here! I remember racing for it as a kid, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

This thread is making me want a novelty ice cream bar--an eclair please. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Or maybe a fudgesicle. They don't taste as good as they used to, though. I remember being able to get a rocket popsicle for 5 cents, so half the time it was my mom digging out her wallet and counting her pennies to see if she had enough, and that took a long time, at least in my mind.

That could totally be something out of my exciting life except I have kittens instead of a dog. Don't underestimate the chaos of kittens, however. Be comforted that you are not the only one whose had times like these! But, I did have a good chuckle at this one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Good to know I'm not the only one out there! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br>
I would never underestimate cats, either. I've had cats my whole life- they're quicker, and harder to get hold of when they run!<br>
This is my first dog, and he's bringing on all new experiences- for better or worse! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
