What time of the day is it OK to eat a popsicle?

It’s 8:45 in the morning.  My kids ate their breakfast.  Right now they’re in the freezer getting popsicle #2 of the day.  I’ve told them that they’re hitting their “Two Popsicle Limit” pretty early.  They don’t seem to care.  This is one of those things that I’ve decided it’s not worth the fight.  If I’m pickin’ my battles, I’ll save my energy for “No, you can’t go swimming without sunscreen.”  That could hurt them.


Meh.  Whatever.

Lucky for them I’ve only had one cup of coffee.  Otherwise I might have enough energy to fight this fight.

    We often have popsicles for breakfast…hey..it’s summer! Popsicles for dinner, no go, sugar surges before bed are not cool! (I learned that the hard way..lol.)

    I get this question every single day. In fact I just answered it like 10 minutes ago. Usually the little one forgets about it while he is eating breakfast and I do not get a request for another few hours. As long as they have had breakfast; it is all good.

    I see little kids at my store pull out ice-cream bars from the freezer when their mothers aren’t looking and then tries to pass it off with the rest of the groceries. half the time they get away with it.
