Another year, another birthday

I recently celebrated a birthday, not a milestone just a regular birthday,which is just as well as it fell on a Monday and I had to work.

The girls and I spent Sunday afternoon with my brother and his family and after dinner they brought out a birthday cake for me - a very cute caterpillar which the kids loved!

with Tilda and Evie

On my actual birthday Annabelle wanted to do the whole cake thing again so I found an old candle, put it in a cupcake and let the girls sing Happy Birthday to me, which made them happy, and therefore made me happy too.

Annabelle also took a couple of photos for me- not a bad photographer for a 3 year old.

Eat less C.R.A.P

I saw this post on the Occupy Food facebook page and I thought it was brilliant.

I am going to print it out and put it on my fridge and hopefully some of the parents of my day care kids will see it.

Thankfully my girls drink water, eat lots of fruit and a variety of vegetables (I'm working on getting them to eat more) plus they like fish and red meat (unlike their Mumma).

As a child care Educator I see some interesting lunch boxes - some of which have never contained a single piece of fruit. Ever.

As a parent myself I know it can be easy to give in to children when they want junk food but if it isn't in the house then they won't ask for it!
