happy

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.

Tornado London!!!

I'm having a hard time adjusting to not spending as much time with London. I went from being with her 24/7 (picnics everyday) to now only spending a couple hours with her in the morning. When I am finished work at 7pm by the time I get home she is in bed asleep. I am also currently working weekends, which means that my husband is with her all day Sat/Sun (no nanny) and for me that equals, no brunch, no farmer markets, no  outdoor walks (we love distillery) no snuggles/cuddles while we watch movies in bed :( Thats why when ever she comes to visit me it is the best thing ever!!! She reaches her little hands for me and has the biggest smile ever. Melts my heart every time. We have an amazing nanny, and every time they walk by the store when they are off to music class, playdate, or Starbucks she stops by and I get a few minutes with my daughter. For some reason she seems to think the store is her playroom and that all the toys belong to her. After she leaves it looks like a tornado was through the place, but I don't care! It is so worth the visit!
