Woot! It’s Friday!! My husband had Monday off this week, so it was a short week in our house but we have a fun weekend planned. My daughter has gymnastics on Saturday and afterwards we are going to check out a German heritage festival. We have lived here for 8 years and have never attended but when you have kids you will try anything to tire them out 😉 Jason is excited to check out the car show with Fofo. Whatever your plans, I hope you have fun, fall weekend!!
Along with trying to tire you kids out, when you become a parent you do your best to make sure they are eating right. Louis CK has a great bit on the frustration that consumes you when your child will not eat: “If you’re skinny, I go to jail. Do you understand!” As I side note, I spent 15 minutes trying to find that exact quote. I could do that all day. I love Louis. Moving on. One thing I make that my kids will always have, is a smoothie. Personally, I think my kids love them because they don’t have to stop and eat. They can drink and run. Come back in a couple minutes and drink and run. Today I am going to share my basic smoothie recipe I make for my girls every couple of days: a simple strawberry and banana smoothie.
