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.

Happy New Years!!

It's 2017! I picked some of my favourite pictures from 2016, which was extremely hard since there are so many. I love every picture of London. Scrolling through all the pictures was bitter sweet. I know everyone always says this, but time really is going by too quickly! Long days, short years. I miss it when London was just 20 pounds and no teeth. She has nine now, and one of them is a molar! 

I hope you all had an amazing holidays! I have a couple new years resolutions, starting with taking better care of my body, which means eating right = eating breakfast!(I am the worst at eating breakfast) I eat pretty well other than that. I love food. I eat tons of veggies, and organic foods, however I eat so much sugar. I have a weakness for anything sweet, cookies, candy, ice cream. And the worst thing is that I do not drink water. This is a huge resolution as I want London to get good habits from me. She copies every little thing she sees anybody do. She will even sit leaning back on the couch the exact way my husband does. If he decides to take his sweater/ jacket off, London will do the same. 

go to bed at a decent time     /  yoga at least once a week    / if I can't eat a balance breakfast make a shake    /      thinking positive 24/7     / focus on whats important        /prioritizing        /    less instagram   

p.s I am so sorry for the delay in blogging. I promise to be more consistent (at least twice a week)  I have lots of good news coming up. 

London  has been trying to walk since 6 months.
