water cooler talk

Now that baby omnivore is here I am blessed enough to be a stay at home mom. This has meant a distinct shift in my daily water cooler talk. Instead of case law and court antics, I now discuss shapes and numbers - with a four month old. We expound on opposites and explore colors. We talk about letters and sounds. It's all really important stuff. But, every now and again Mommy needs a break from the babble.

Enter my watermelon wonder-drink. This little concoction can pick me up any afternoon after a full morning of the demands of motherhood. Simple to make, and sweet to sip. It is sensational.

Start with 1 cup of ice cubes. Place them in the blender with 1 cup of cubed seedless watermelon. Add in half a cup of orange juice. Squeeze in half of a lime. Blend thoroughly. Top with a fresh sprig of mint. Sit somewhere quite and enjoy...at least until baby is ready for another gab session.
