Sharing - or lack thereof

I didn't think it would be this hard to teach sharing to Sadie, but its proven to be very difficult.

This was a very sad tea party. Mostly because Sadie wouldn't let her brother have any of her toys.

He was so crushed.

I also realize that Lucas is at an age now where if he doesn't get his way, a full blown fit will occur. It was bound to happen.

I think every attempt I make to teach sharing has them both crying in the end. I usually grab an unused toy from Sadie and give it to Lucas, and then she cries and wrenches it back making him scream all while I'm trying to take it back from her and say "Sadie, we need to share with Lucas". Nope. That is not working. They are still pretty little though.

Any help or advice is welcome.

These photos make me laugh every time though. Sadie calmly pouring her "mint" tea and Lucas just Wailing. You can even see the pout begin in the top one.

Beat the Heat - Peach Mango Summer Smoothie

We've been drinking smoothies a lot lately. The kids love them, and its one way I know Sadie is ingesting good for you foods. One of the best ways to get it nice and cold is to either add ice or frozen cubes of yogurt. I froze a bunch in an ice cube tray and they make things nice and cold without watering it down.

To make our Peach Mango Summer Smoothies, all you need is a couple peaches pitted and cut into chunks, a few chunks of mango, then I add orange juice, frozen yogurt cubes and away we go.

Blenderize it to death. I don't mind peach peels in my smoothie, but you can peel them if you want to.

Sometimes if I'm desperate to make a healthy one for Sadie, I throw in spinach. She is none the wiser.

Smoothies are my best friend this summer.

If you have tips or tricks to beating the heat, email me at justaddmoresprinkes[at]gmail and I'll see what I can do about posting it up here on the blog. :)
