Our Sick House Rules...

One must not be required to change out of night-time attire. Zip-up footed jammies are acceptable, nay encouraged.

One must not be required to entertain oneself without the aid of a certain babysitter of the screened variety.

One must not be required to eat healthy, nutritiously rounded meals (as if that's the norm - *snort*!)

One is permitted to drink a smoothie (pronounced "smoovie" by the under 3 crowd) in place of a meal.

One carries an 'unlimited juice consumption for duration of sickness' card.

Our sick "smoovie" recipe of the day:

  • One banana
  • two scoops chocolate or vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4-1/2 cup peanut butter
  • chocolate syrup (to taste)
  • 1/2 (ish) cup of milk

Blenderize. Serve to sick little one in old plastic restaurant cup with accordion straw that is guaranteed to leak. IMPORTANT!***One MUST taste test at LEAST 1/2 cup or more of "Smoovie" recipe to determine adequate taste mixage and acceptability***

I cannot stress the taste test enough. It is vital for the recipe's success.



  1. Mmm...smoothie sounds great! By the way, I've been meaning to tell you I like your fall blog makeover! Very cute!

  2. So are these the rules just for Bubbaloo, or do they apply to you too when you get sick? I would hope they do!

  3. Hey, we have the same rules in our house! ;)

  4. oh sounds good! smoothie sounds yummmy

  5. Too cute! We're facing our third or fourth cold of the season, and I'm a HUGE fan of the screen babysitter during these snotty days. :)

    Thanks for stopping by this week!


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
