"Mommy, I Hear the Music Truck!"



Was it SO wrong of me to tell my kids that the Ice Cream Truck was the "Music Truck"?

They believed me for YEARS!

So wrong! That's exactly what we did as well. We made until the oldest was 4 before she figured out that it wasn't just music.

LOL!!!! It sounds like something I would do! Ha!

Heather Marie said...

LOL...saved you alot of money though didn't it?? haha....love that picture!

My kids call ours the "tea pot man" because they heard his truck playing "I'm a little tea pot" a couple times.

Morgan said...

The music truck, though, that's good. It is a truck and it is playing music, so that is a truthful statement. ; )

Kelley said...

i love it!

Valerie said...

That is funny, I don't care who you are...that's just funny!

Sneaky...verrrrry sneaky!LOL

LOL, meaner mommy! ;) My SIL used to tell her kids that when they heard the music that meant they were all out of ice cream. Now THAT'S mean!! LOL Now that we have 2-3, sometimes FOUR, trucks going around our street during the summer, I kinda wish I'd known about the "music truck" a long time ago! Though, my kids are older and 'know' but still.

What a great idea!! Every time I hear it I just hope Hannah doesn't ask what it is - I don't think she has really made the connection even though she knows there are "ice cream trucks" out there in the world!! ;-)

crap...why didn't I think of that.

Carolyn said...

That's not wrong - it's sound economic sense!

Elaine at Matters of the Heart) said...

I'm stealing your idea, especially since there is nothing I can get from it.

E @ Scottsville said...

Ha ha ha, you did not!

OMGoodness, that's so mean and funny all at the same time!

Jen said...

not wrong at all, actually brilliant.

That could be SHEER genius if you ask me. My father (Poppi) trained both of my boys that if you hear that thing you run as if your butt was on fire to get something...so guess who runs into the MIDDLE of the street to stop that dumb thing...YEP, and then they come get me and say the Ice cream truck is waiting for us in the middle of the road! GRRRR...music truck, a MUCH better idea!

I only wish that I had thought of that! lol

That is hysterical. I wish my mom would have told me it was the music truck and now my heart wouldn't race and I wouldn't get all flustered trying to find change to get an ice cream Sunday. :)

I wish I had thought of that..you are a genuis.

grandma mac said...

Melissa said...

Oh I love it! I would use it...only if we had them out where we live!

Hi Julie,

Thank you for your recent visit to my blog.

That is so funny because that is the same thing I did with my children. All they wanted to do is run out and watch the "Music Truck" go by...I think that confused the ice cream man.

P.S. This photo is too cute!
