Serve It Up!



So, last night, Gage wanted some Kool Aid.
He chose grape.
HEEEEEEEEE wanted to stir it.
So, he pulled his chair up to the cabinet. I mixed the powder w/ the sugar & water. I handed him a big spoon to stir.
In the background, dinner was being made...
Turn my back for a second, and PLOP, in goes a scoop of butter. Butter IN the Kool Aid. EEEEWWWW!
Turn by back for another second---in goes a handful of M&Ms.
EEEEEWWWWW.
And the final ingredient: One Baby Gage sneeze sprinkled over the top.

So, Baby Gage's Recipe for Kool Aid:

1 packet kool aid
1 c. sugar
Several cups water
1 scoop butter
1 handful M&Ms
1 sneeze to garnish

At the point of the sneeze---Hubby & I decided that we just don't drink enough water, and clearly, we'd need to drink water with our dinner.
But Gage---no, he had to have some Kool aid.
....and he drank it.

EEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

Yum! I agree, water had to have been the best choice. Funny that Gage drank his concoction, though!

LMFAO... I'll be waiting awhile to attempt the kool-aid with the munchkins after this. I can't believe he drank it!

That sounds like a Paula Deen recipe, without the sneeze. At least I hope she leaves out sneezes. Ew.
And Dude! That's awesome that you let him drink it. Awesome.

I have always wondered if kids were hard of tasting or something because they really do eat, and in this case drink, the most distgusting thing!
Another thing I love is when they sneak a drink of your water and leave backwash in it, I like to refer to it as pulp. That's so gross!

Hi..That was a funny and yet really gross story =) My daughter always sneezes on her food.. and still eats it, that's why I let her eat first and then the rest of the family eats cause it tends to deter appetities =) pretty funny blog =)

I bet it was the best.darn.Grape Kool-Aid of all time. Yummy, sneeze topping!

I once babysat a little girl who would just eat butter, by itself, for breakfast. At least Gage only wants a scoop!

The sneeze is the best part! Kind of like when they blow out their birthday candles and end up spitting all over the cake!

See the M&M's in the kool aid sound interesting but the butter and sneeze I could do without! LOL

gotta admire his persistence!
that's a good skill he has already:
follow thru.

he will be successful in life.

hopefully, though, not as a chef!
