Thank you mommy bloggers!!

We woke up to tons of snow this morning. So I decided to take the day off since I had to get papers ready for my bookkeeper anyway. A couple days ago I came across a profile on social media and instantly I was hooked. I guess she was a teacher so she has lots of  awesome kid friendly recipes and games on her blog. She is also obsessed with her kids and it makes me feel like I am not the only crazy mommy out there. (Her website is www.mamapapabubba.com.) There was one recipe that I just had to try! Baby play dough. Edible baby play dough. London and I literally whipped it up in 5 minutes or less. We had every ingredient in our kitchen too. 5 ingredients. 

- 1/2 cup Love Child Organics Oat & Chia instant cereal  

- 1/2 cup Corn Starch 

- 1/4 cup Love Child Organics apple puree  

- 1 tablespoon coconut oil/butter  

- 2 tablespoon boiling water  

The more you work it the more the coconut oils comes out and it quickly becomes this beautiful consistency. I'm pretty sure you can use any baby instant cereal, and any baby fruit pure. I added food colouring and at first it may look a little marbled but if you keep at it it will look identical to play dough. London was in heaven! It brings me so much joy watching her feel like such a big girl by helping me. I love being able to spend quality time with her. I thought this was all so perfect since London is obsessed with Love Child anything. I did not know they are Canadian. London loves it so much that I have bought a bunch to hand out as free snacks at the store. So come by and enjoy some duck puffs, rice cakes, & apple pures on us.

Royal Winter Fair

I got Kevin to pick me up an hour early from work, and we decided to take London down to the Royal winter fair. I was in heaven hanging out with my cute little family (heart explosion). London got to see horses, cows, pigs, chickens, and bunnies. She kept pointing at all the animals with a huge grin on her face. Watching her experience things for the first time is such an incredible moment for me. Feeling her grab me tighter when she is scared, or letting go of me when she is feeling confident. She got to feed some goats, and alpacas. Watching Kevin and her hold hands, or kiss melts my heart every single time. We walked around, found a cute antique booth. We got to try a hot apple dumpling for our first time, and it was amazing! Warm, sweet, and gooey. When we finally found the food court we had pirogies, a burger, and potato pancakes. Kevin was sitting across from us and he kept giggling, turns out London's face was covered in sour cream!! On the way out she picked out a little hedgehog stuffed animal. She loves stuffed animals! By the time we got home London had fallen asleep in the car, she must have been tired from all the walking. Her little legs can only walk so fast, but she manages to keep up! These are the type of days I live for, memories that will last a life time. xx
