Wondering

Joseph was playing with one of his push toys today, but he wasn't pushing it. Instead, he had it upside-down and was playing with the wheels and battery compartment. Tony and I were reminded of being kids and turning bikes (tricycles or big wheels) upside-down and saying that we were making ice cream. Where on earth does that come from? Is this something that every kid does? Why on earth would it look like an ice cream machine?

maybe by spinning the pedals, it reminds you of the snoopy snow cone maker....

ha ha! I totally did that too. I used to turn my two wheeler over and put ripped up grass on the wheels as I turned the pedals screaming "Ice cream, Ice Cream.....who wants ice cream?!"

Is this a chicken or egg dilemma? Maybe it's one of those evolution/survival things that's hardwired into our genetic code ~ do you suppose that wheels were only invented after some unusually adult saw a little kid playing a wheel game with rocks? and ice cream/machines were only invented because some adult saw a little kid playing the ice cream game??? Makes sense to me that it would be connected to our dna, because obviously ice cream (and wheels) are necessary for survival . . .
