Getting back to business as usual after our vacation!
Here’s what happened this past week:
We were home from our vacation but still struggled getting used to the correct time zones again. Going from the east coast to the west coast is fiiiiiiine for us. But coming back is a little tougher. Much easier said than done. Thank goodness it’s summer! My kids slept in until 9:30 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings! That has never ever happened before in the past 9 years that I’ve been a mother. Sooooo, basically I’ve never been happier.
We were home bodies a lot of the week, getting everything put back in its place and just trying to beat the heat. Brooke has created her own smoothie recipe and has been making one for her and the boys each day for lunch, with accompanying cheese and crackers on the side. Her basic recipe is “a few handfuls of frozen berries, a scoop of chocolate powder (Bob’s Red Mill protein…great for kids!), a frozen banana, milk to cover it all and a spoon of chocolate chips.” I figure it’s quite a healthy and filling lunch, even with the addition of a tablespoon of chocolate chips. Plus, she gets to spend a little extra time with mama because it’s in the kitchen. I’m trying to get her to add in two or three pieces of frozen broccoli but she won’t do it. I SWEAR you can’t taste it….
