We are in the process of looking for a good “big school” for our daughter. In a recent conversation with a co-parent, she mentioned that some schools also interview parents. I asked her what they ask parents, and she said, the usual questions like “how much time do you spend with your child?” and “What do you do when you spend time with her?”. That got me thinking about how we spend time with our daughter.
I realized that I haven’t been that much “fun” to hang around with. Haha! When we hang around, it’s always about teaching her about numbers and the alphabet. So with this, I though about a fun activity that we can do together. One of the things that I thought of is making a fun and nutritious drink together.
I just bought three boxes of California Sunshine Milk from S&R Membership Club, so I thought about creating milkshake with her. My daughter loves the California Sunshine Milk Homogenized (orange box). The other two variants that we bought were California Sunshine Milk Non-Fat (blue Box) and California Sunshine Milk Reduced Fat (purple box) which my husband and I drink, too!
We love buying California Sunshine Milk because it has the seal of approval from the California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB). The CMAB, an instrumentality of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is one of the leading agricultural marketing boards in the US comprised of the dairy farm families in the state. CMAB exists to spread the word about the extraordinary dairy products made with Real California Milk.
With this sign, I know that the milk that we give our daughter is of the highest quality.
We want to share with you this fun recipe we created!

We had so much fun. My daughter loved the drink and she asked for more refills. This is a fun activity that you and your child can do.
