It’s the most magical time of the year. That super special time for those of us with toddlers wherein we embrace the big, jolly, hairy white lie that is Santa Clause, (don’t even talk to me about how wrong that is. Just stop it with that) and knuckle down for some serious vacation time, merriment and family gatherings.
Which all usually revolves around lots of travel. At least for us. In a car. For hours.
When one has toddlers, they’re willing to do pretty much anything to get them to eat more than ketchup sandwiches.
Not everyday, these picky little eaters will indeed survive without eating a balanced meal on the steady, 3 times a day. Trying to make that happen will/can get tiring pretty quick.
However, there are some things you can, on occasion that will boost their love for simple, healthy foods (without all the toddler ‘frills’ = dips and condiments) for all those times in between. I recently came up with this simple, fun dinnertime activity that was a total hit with my kids…
In these last few precious days of summer, I can’t help but look forward to fall. Autumn would be my favourite time of year if we had the long days of sunlight that come with the summer.
That’s the one thing that truly makes my heart ache a little with the change of seasons (from summer to fall). When the daylight hours start to trickle down and it starts to get dark earlier. Soon, we’ll be trying to get dinner on the table earlier so we can still get in a walk or a trip to the park before it gets dark.
Summer always seems so short and winter is so, so long. I try to remember that whenever I get a hankering for fall. I also try to pack in as much outdoor activities during the last days of August as I can. I think many mothers must do this. Right?
