This is my 9 year old who is a wonderfully quirky fellow that we all LOVE! He is incredibly smart, funny, loving and he absorbs information like a sponge. He talks using words many adults don't use. He is a special boy in that he has ADHD, OCD, Bipolar disorder... Aspergers. That is a lot of titles to hold isn't it? He is so interested in helping in the kitchen and especially blending. He has perfected the banana smoothie, I mean I haven't had one anywhere else that tastes as good and I finally gave up ordering them. Stop by I'm sure he would love to make you one!
