My Summertime Nemesis

We have three - yes, THREE ice cream trucks that drive by our house. I think they are in cahoots together. Its some great conspiracy to drain my bank account and keep the kids on a sugar high with permanently red stained lips. There must me some sort of ice cream drivers club where they get together and share the best places to go. "Ooh! That house on the corner of X and X has tons of kids! Surely they need our frozen goodness delivered right to their door. Come on everyone! Follow me!"
Sometimes the kids come running to me yelling "Ice cream truck! Ice cream truck!" and I joyfully tell them "Uh, no. That's the babys mobile. Nice try though."
I can't wait for the rain.
