It’s Sundae Sunday here at the Mama Teaches household! On the first Sunday after the first day of summer, we pile in the car, head to the grocery store, and pick out ice cream and toppings for our lunch or dinner meal. We are, as I type this, all in a sugar coma. But that’s okay. It’s Sundae Sunday after all – and it’s about more than just ice cream.
For us, the tradition of ice cream for dinner or lunch started after we read this article about the mother of a toddler named Ryan. Ryan had only a few weeks to live when the article was published and the message the mother wanted to get out was simple: watch your children smile. She encouraged families to make sundaes for dinner and watch their children’s eyes light up. Cherish the moments. Make memories. Love.
For us, Sundae Sunday is a tradition founded in a mother’s plea to embrace life and one that we continue with love and laughter and smiles as big as the sea.
Happy Sundae Sunday!
