As in just about every other part of America, is has been hot here. I'm talking Satan's playground type of heat. Record breaking temps. Sweltering humidity. Horribly hot and unbearable. Got the picture? We've been trying all sorts of things to keep cool but one in particular has become George's favorite.
When he was so sick with the coxackie virus for a few days back in June, I picked up some of those freezer pops in a tube to have on hand. He wasn't eating or drinking enough and I was about to try anything. Hating that they were pure sugar water with nasty food dyes, to boot, I was determined for this to be a short term solution and not a habit. The pure sugar pops were quickly replaced by 100% apple juice pops, frozen in popsicle molds I had picked up on a whim during my last trip to Ikea. Though G doesn't drink juice, an occasional juice pop was an alternative I could live with.
Then, last weekend we took a road trip to visit some friends. Having a son close to George's age, the mom had a similar pop issue in her house. She had recently bought a juicer and her solution was to make popsicles for her son out of her juice creations. Perfect!
And the verdict? Fruit pop love...
