It’s been a month.

Wow, time sure flies.

We haven’t told too many people yet. Only the grandparents and a handful of our closest friends.

There’s a new addition to our family.

Needless to say, the kids are ecstatic.

Mustache and goatee!

Very excited!

Especially Junior.

Suburban cowboy is ecstatic too. Can’t you tell?

Well, he is, to some extent. Because it wasn’t planned and I didn’t really ask him.

… It’s a boy.

The kids are ecstatic though. Oh, I’ve said that a couple of times already, haven’t I? I guess it’s because I’m just so tired. I need to catch up on some sleep.

A smoothie is a good idea too.

We have a boy.

Pet.

Fish.

Pet fish boy.

He’s Junior’s pet.

Meet Blubee.

Actually the official name Junior gave him is Bluetail but I couldn’t help it; I call him Blubee. I had a friend in high school who was nicknamed Blubee and little fishy here kind of reminds me of her. I’m just kidding. No, I’m not.

Junior is very excited about having Blubee and is already planning on the next future pets he would like to have. A shark, an Iguana, a Cyclop (is that a real animal?), a tarantula, a snake… Oh, well, we’ll just have to see about that. To buy some time I tell him, “Let’s talk about it again next April and see how you take care of Blubee. Let’s see if he makes it until next year.”

So far Junior is taking very good care of the little fishy – he is really taking it seriously – feeding him and giving him baths. In fact, today Blubee had his second bath since he moved in with us and Junior did it all by himself. Catching the fish gently with a container, cleaning the tank and all,

As you can see, the whole family is excited about giving Blubee a bath :)

Do you have pets?

All kids love to play with electric appliances, don’t they? (Stand close by.)

We tried different combinations but I don’t have a recipe (But there are plenty out there, right?! Just like hummus and pesto!) because this is how were are in this family, improvisers.
The rule of thumb is to have a combination of sweet and sour, and something creamy. You can throw in a pinch of salt too. A splash of lemon juice is mandatory.
 
Sweet Sour Creamy Other
banana
mango
melon
honey
vanilla extract
kiwi
berries
citrus – juice/zest/fruit: lemon, orange
lettuce (just kidding)
apple
milk (whole)
yogurt
banana
dates
honey
ice
mint
lemon thyme

In summer time, of course, the sky is the limit with nectarines, plums, peaches, apricots… Ohhhh, Summer, come back already!

What do you add to your smoothie?
