I am the MOM and I was here FIRST!

My photo
I am a 44 year old mother of three children and grandmother of one. I am divorced from my children's father whom I share joint physical custody of our youngest two children with. I have been married to my fabulous husband for over 9 near-perfect years. I LOVE this man! He is a wonderful generous, affectionate, tolerant and all forgiving husband. He is also a terrific step-dad/male role model to my kids and an even better grand father to our two year old grand daughter. My oldest daughter attends college to obtain her nursing degree. She has been on her own for over three years now (no longer part of a shared custody arrangement like her brother & sister) My middle daughter is in high school and plays on the freshmen volleyball & soccer teams. She's really creative and talented. My son is in middle school and plays hockey and lacrosse. He is a sweet sensitive boy who still says "I love you Mom" frequently. I work part time running an online ebay store. I have terrific and supportive relationships with my family, friends and of course my kids. I am extremely close to my sister, my Mom and my sister-in-laws. They are my best friends.

Juicy Juice

My 12 year old son doesn't like fruit. He won't eat it. At all.

He likes broccoli, cauli flower, green beans and corn... but that's about it for vegetables.

He likes juice... apple, grape, and orange.


No sugar added
120% Vitamin C
The first three ingredients are pear juice, apple juice & carrot juice.
A good source of BETA CAROTENE

Juicy Juice Harvest Surprise contains 25% of your child's recommended combined servings of fruits & vegetables in every 8 ounce glass.

He loves it. I was pouring it for him every morning because I didn't want him to see the label. (See pic)

One day, he went to pour himself a glass. He happened to see the label (darn it), started backing slowly away from the counter as if he were going to catch cooties from the bottles contents and said:

"Whoa!... Hey... whoa.... whoa... wait a minute... what's this veggie juice stuff?"

I said:

"Relax. That is the same juice you've been drinking all along for weeks now. Ignore the label. You already like it."

And he does.

(Gotcha little boy!)
