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.
