No reason to do it. But no reason not to. My two year old daughter asked me for a milk shake. I have never made her one. I don't know how that idea popped into her head. My guess is a cartoon. Or one of her story books has some fairies drinking milk shakes. Anyway she asked me. They just finished their lunch, and I could not for the life if me think of a reason to say no. So I said yes.
*Side note -- I have never made a milk shake before, so I this is what I did. I am not sure if this is what the experts do, but it worked perfectly.
Vanilla Milk Shake
these are approximate -- I just eyeballed it
Vanilla ice cream (3-4 scoops)
Some milk (1 cup)
Splash of vanilla extract (1 Tablespoon)
Whipped cream for decoration
Strawberry for decoration
I made the kids sit at the table, close their eyes, and wait for their surprise. This was their reaction when they opened their eyes -- truly priceless!
This is the reason I decided to stay at home and stop teaching. I loved teaching high school English, but I love this more.
Milk shakes at 1:30 in the afternoon on January 11, 2013. What life is ALL about.
