mothers day out

As you know, the carnivore and I welcomed baby omnivore in our lives a few months ago. Lucky for me, two of my good girlfriends followed right behind us with their own bouncing baby boys. Now me and the girls have get-togethers with our little guys about once a week. And since the babies can't really do much yet, the play dates are more for us than for them. We share tips and hints. We commiserate and sometimes cry. But above all we just try to get out! And whether we go to story time to get out of our own house, or we meet up to walk our strollers down the neighborhood streets to just get outside, switching things up and getting out of our routine seems to breathe fresh life into us. One afternoon recently the ladies dropped by my place, and I decided to make the mommy time even more special with a fizzy drink to help calm our frazzled nerves.

And this lime lovely couldn't be more simple. In a pitcher, place half a can of frozen limeade (6oz) along with two can of sprite zero (or the real deal if that is what you have one hand), one can of tonic water, half of a lime wedged, and a generous amount of ice cubes. Stir and serve chilled.

This drink made our drab day seem fab. It was sweet and tart. The bubbles made it even more special. I served it along side some left over fruit salad I brightened up with fresh mint still growing in my garden and left over slices of spice cake (you know, things that can be eaten with your fingers if you have your hands full with, say, a baby). In any case, it was out of the ordinary and all mothers need that from time to time.

How do you think outside of the box to make your days more special? Let me know below.

  5. Aw, it was an extremely great post. Theoretically Id like to write similar to this also - taking time and real effort to produce a good article but exactly what can I say I procrastinate a lot and never often get something done.
