“A few weeks ago my 18th month old son and I were walking home from a trip to the playground at Raymond elementary. On our way home we stopped to say hello to our neighbor, an older woman that often sits on her porch with her dog. My son invited him self up onto her porch to pet her dog and I mentioned it was getting close to snack and nap time for the little guy. To which our neighbor responded that “he probably wants some ice cream”, and promptly went inside and came out with two scoops of butter pecan ice cream in a to-go container “in case he wants it after his nap”.
We live in south Petworth, just north of Spring Rd.”
