Awww! Just look at that little pineapple shark in the pool of carrot goodness.
I seriously need to get out more, people.
Sick kids are no joke. I feel extremely lucky for not having the Manchild ill since he was only weeks old. But life has a funny way of catching up and throwing you quite the curve ball. This kid is loaded with a couple ear infections, a repository virus, a nasty cough that chills your bones, and is still recovering from a recent case of tonsillitis.
So it goes without saying that this past week has just been a party-and-a-half in the Blondie household.
And no matter how sweet-as-candy they create the antibiotics and cough medicine, the kid still refuses to willingly take it. Hiding it in juice was a nice attempt, too - but completely backfired. I feel like every morning is a torture session, and it breaks my heart. Then again, I've been an advocate for tough love since the beginning.
With all the kid vs. medicine matches, my obsessive need to try to keep the house in order, and the miserable zombie child pillaging the living room, there has been almost no time at all for a decent lunch.
This shake saved the day.
Veggies. Fruit. Seriously.
