Mom and Dad are taking the two oldest boys to KS for a week! Think we’ll feed the babies like normal – but just do brunch and dinner for Jay and I
Also going to try veggie smoothies this week to see which ones my boys would drink once they’re back. Jonah has such a hard time eating his veggies and even his fruit. I think it’s a texture issue seeing as how he would drink fruit smoothies all day if I gave it to him. So, we’ll see if I can get veggies into some of them for him to enjoy. After trying these smoothies, I’ll start posting the ones I think we’ll keep in our repertoire.
