Summer is here!!!! P-buddy’s playroom is downstairs in our finished basement and is starting to grow cobwebs!!! We seriously have not been down there in a good two weeks because the weather has finally been nice and we have been spending most of our days at the park or in our backyard swinging. Doesn’t get much better than that huh?
BUT it does rain outside and we need something to capture our attention downstairs (besides the ever popular animal magnets). I have seen posts about baking soda and vinegar everywhere on line. I even remember playing with it when I was little. So naturally we had to try it!
Bubbly Baking Soda Play
spread some baking soda in a plastic container with small sides
using a condiment dispenser (wal-mart!) filled with vinegar squirt the liquid onto the baking soda
watch the colors explode into bubbly fun!!
P-buddy has really been into squirting things from containers. He’s all about blopping dots of paint onto a paper from the bottle. I knew that he would like squeezing the vinegar out, and that the bubbly colors would be an added bonus! It was extra fun on our light table. *Obviously watch little fingers so that they don’t try to eat it! Yuck!
Great for a rainy day when it’s just to yucky to be outside!
Hello bloggy world! How have you been??? I’ve been busy!!!!
We just got back from a vacation down south (car ride with a baby was successful!) where we spent all week visiting with family/friends, white water rafting, zip lining, swinging at parks, and lot of other vacation goodness!
And apparently when I go on vacation, Spoon Fed Baby takes a hurting. I neglected all of you all!!! Sorry for that. Moving on!
I have not posted about food lately, and seeing that is what the theme of this blog is about – let’s get back to the basics!
I have posted before about my son’s obsession with bread. It is one of the only things that will get him out of the toddler swing and inside the house to eat. Instead of going for the straight sandwich every day, I try to change things up with flat bread and many various toppings. He loves jelly, and what goes with jelly? Peanut Butter!! BUT alas, he is not two yet, and it’s a no no according to my pediatrician.
SO, I found a great alternative that gives P-buddy some protein in his diet, and is a good partner for jelly!!
I found it at the supermarket in the aisle with the peanut butter. It is obviously made from sunflower seeds. If you are looking for the exact same taste as peanut butter, this isn’t it, but the flavor is good, and what 2 (or under) year old is even going to know what PB takes like??
It does have to be refrigerated and needs a bit of stirring before spreading it, but P-buddy loves it!!
I am trying really hard at this parenting thing. Really hard.
Toddlers are their own breed of humans. I have heard them referred to as mini cave men before – and yep that’s about right! They have feelings (often very strong), emotions, needs, wants, all wrapped up into a brain that doesn’t quite understand how
Hi my name is Sarah and I’m addicted to taking photos of my baby. Who knew that as a parent you could think that each and every one of the 200 photos snapped in one month to month photo sitting are cute and different than the previous one. “Oh look! Now he’s looking over to
Easter and all it’s cuteness and family time was overshadowed by a yucky, yucky, yucky stomach bug that plagued P-buddy for the better part of 4 days. Germs: go away!!!! My parents are coming back from FL (yay!) and we are celebrating hubby’s birthday here
To say that P-buddy loves music in an understatement. He is OBSESSED with music.
Every week our little family heads to music class together. It is a special music class for children 0-5 that uses Music Together songs. We sing songs, play musical instruments, and explore all kinds of rhythms. It’s hard to explain to
