Food Staple – March 26th, 2009

There was a period last year when, thanks to a spinach e-coli situation, we could not buy Veggie Booty. Yes, the little snacks that boasted spinach and kale in bite sized puffs, and were endorsed by my pediatrician (really), were gone from grocery store shelves. It was a tough few months but we made it through and now Thomas has a healthy addiction to cashews and peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches.

I am incredibly thankful that Veggie booty was returned to the shelves by the time this little guy was old enough for solids. Sometimes it’s the only thing that keeps Samuel happy while I frantically make dinner – and he inhales them like there’s no tomorrow. So, thank you makers of Veggie booty. You have preserved my sanity on more than one occasion.

A little girly goodness – March 25th, 2009

Spring break means juggling children while daycare is closed. This time we decided to do a little house swap with some fellow daycare parents. Wednesday was my turn and I got off easy with just one extra child in tow. We had a fun day with some painting (while Samuel was asleep) aquick trip to the park and a little craft project. The rest of the day was spent with quiet play, a two-hour nap (yes, they all napped at the same time!) and a lot of playing “keep the baby away from the toddlers toys”.

And I had a fabulous opportunity to take some photos of a little girl. Yes, I now have some pink in my portfolio. These are just a few of my favourites




My boys were there too. Just not as pretty.

But still pretty darn cute
