This is what happens when your econ-major of a husband goes to the grocery store.

That's twenty (2-0) half-gallons of ice cream for a total of ten gallons. He insists on a break-even analysis based on the normal cost of this ice cream ($5.99) and the fact of it's "purchase 10 for $2.79" sales pitch, which means buying 20, to save us money on Dairy Queen costs because a half-gallon of on-sale Breyers Natural is cheaper than two large Blizzards.

Maybe. I suspect that Brad had a premonition that we'd be needing some extra ice cream around here...and he was right, considering we are now expecting the arrival of baby number three (!!!) some time in late July, and it takes me an appreciable amount of ice cream to grow a baby. 10 gallons should do it...then again, maybe I should send him back while it's all still on sale........


  1. Congrats!!! Babies are awesome.
    Ice cream, however, is less so. Blech.

  2. The problem is.... that this is easier to access than diary queen icecream. This is dangerous for me during my "i'm so exhausted I could die" time of day, 2-pm to 4pm.

    But, yes, babies need lots of icecream to grow. Especially 3rd babies. Congrats!

  3. HAHAHAA!!! Uncle Charlie would be proud! :)
