My mother-in-law noticed that Jack was feeling kind of lousy on Thursday. By Friday it had turned into a 103.5 kind of lousy. Poor pudding has been Mr. Pathetic ever since. He was so sad and miserable that when I asked him what would make him feel better and he said “to watch The Incwedibles mommy”, I threw my frugalness out of the window. I found myself running to 2 stores at rush hour and paying full price just for a movie that Jack watched for 30 minutes. Sigh.
Something you can do to make your kiddo feel better (and let’s face it your significant other because men are candy asses when it comes to being sick) that doesn’t cost a lot is to whip up a batch of homemade popsicles.
I found these fun popsicle molds at TJ Maxx for $4 a few months ago, and have been anxious to try them out. I dare say that Jack was quite impressed considering he took one lick, smiled, and said “wow”.
Feel Better Popsicles
- 1 organic mango, cut into chunks
- 1 cup organic raspberries
- drizzle of honey
- 1/2 cup juice
- 1/3 cup milk (regular, soy, coconut, etc.)
Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender, and process until smooth. Put in popsicle molds and freeze overnight. Give to the poor little sicky in your life.
