Apparently, when your child turns four, their inner menace is instantly activated. With this activation comes such inexplicable behaviors as hurling oneself at a moving swing, superman-style, with such force that said four-year-old flies directly over the swing, head first into the gravel. Ouch!
Pulling down one’s pants and walking around the produce section of the grocery store, butt cheeks fully exposed, is apparently another new behavior triggered at age four. True story.
Oh, the list of things I never imagined myself saying goes on and on…
Pull up your pants! You’re in the middle of a grocery store!
Stop licking your brother’s feet.
The baby doesn’t want your underwear on his head.
You shouldn’t be eating any type of boogers! I don’t care which ones taste better.
Sometimes, the only response I can muster is Why?? Why would you do that??
But with this new mischief also comes a deeper passion for favorite things. And my four year old has a deep passion for smoothies. Lucky for him, I happen to love them too, so I’m more than happy to fire up the blender for a daily smoothie. We’ve enjoyed all sorts of smoothies this summer, but these are the smoothies which brought my son to tears. Literally, to tears. They’re really that good!
- 2 bananas, chopped and frozen
- 1 mango, chopped and frozen*
- 3/4 cup pineapple yogurt

Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
