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.

My First Post ... Worst Wife Ever!!!

It was my husband's birthday today and I forgot! I feel like the most terrible person on the planet. This man has given me everything. Everything I have ever wanted. I'm talking surprises me with love letters, showers me with gifts, finds solutions to all my problems, and most importantly has given me my healthy daughter (IVF for 2 years)  I don't want to turn this into a cheesy love poem, BUT I HAVE NO CHOICE! I'm talking I would die for this man (yes I am that type of a person).

This is what I think happened (and no I am not making excuses for myself) I am in the middle of opening Macpherson Toy House, which is my first time doing anything like this! I am new to this end of the retail world (my husband would tell you I am a professional shopaholic and has banned me from many stores in the ’hood). Its been a huge learning curve, hectic, a lot of decision making, and on top of it I have a little girl who turned one yesterday. Thats the other thing, their birthdays are one day apart. London's is the 18th, and Kevin's is the 19th. I never thought I would forget the most important person in my life's bday. I was so worried about not being around for my daughters birthday that I wasn't even thinking about my poor husband. And now the unthinkable has happened! I pride myself in being a giver. I love making my loved ones feel special. I hate saying no to them! I am going to take this as my first big lesson from running a business, don't forget about what's most important!
