I am glad school is out, and the kids are at home.

Disclaimer – It has been less than a week since Twisha and Anaya are at home so I am still in that ‘elated’ stage and happy that I don’t have to drive four times a day for pick up and drop offs. I think it is only time when both the kids and I will get on each other’s nerves. Time will tell 🙂

Here’s the thing – This school year was particularly crazy. My older kid Twisha’s school district decided to change the school start time by 45 minutes. That meant we had to get out of the house at a crazy early hour to reach the bus stop on time.

While Twisha ate breakfast at home for the most part of the school year, I am not sure what happened during the tail end. She took longer and longer to get to the breakfast table. We often had situations where we had to make a call between eating breakfast or missing the bus.

While Twisha didn’t mind skipping her breakfast, I wasn’t too thrilled about it. That meant I had to drive an hour back and forth to drop her school during peak traffic just so that she could finish her breakfast.

The only solution that I could see was – breakfast on the go!

That’s how smoothies made its way into our lives.  That’s why I have been trying to make different smoothies like this Papaya Mango Smoothie this summer. So that when school begins, the kids will have a ton of recipes to choose from for their daily breakfast.
