Snoepie Dag

So I received a note in my Baby shoes snack/lunch box last Thursday from the teacher.

QUOTE: Vrydae is snoepie-dag, Dan mag Gemma koekies en lekkers in haar kosblikkie kry.  Ander dae is dit gesonde kos en selfs "chips"

I was a bit shocked as I don't pack sweets in her snack box, besides the yoghurt coated sunflower seeds and biscuits.  I don't even pack in chips, I actually only pack in a sandwich, biscuits, raisins and nuts and sometimes a few pieces of dried fruit or fresh fruit.  Now I'm at a lose, which I'm turning around, this mommies on a new mission to find "suitable" snacks for my babies snack box.

Post comments if you have any ideas to add.

Wordless Wednesday

Mother's day

For mother's day this year I decided to go the "homemade" route and because its nearly winter here in South Africa (winter already in Cape Town) I decided to make rice microwave bean bags.  They turned out fantastic, I even infused them with lavender essence.  My Mother & Mother in law loved them! I'm so pleased with myself.

Will definitely be making these again! I really need one!

Mommy being Creative - Felt Canvas Art

Ok so I can't paint, but I've been dying to try something different, this is my first "felt canvas art" hopefully more to follow, but as a working mother of a 3 year old, I find it very difficult to have "ME" time!

I hope you like it!

Our new Kitty's

So my husband decided to surprise Baby shoes and Mommy by taking us to Animal Anti Cruelty League this weekend to adopt an animal,  now this was a huge debate in our household as my dear husband wanted to get a dog and I desperately wanted a kitty.  After loosing my beloved Siamese to renal failure 3 years ago my life just didn't seem complete! I've always had a cat and so deperately wanted my Baby shoes to experience the love for animals.

After looking at the dogs (big & small) we decided to go look (just a look) at the kitty's and we came across Mielie (the younger of the 2) who desperately needed a home, she look to Baby shoes instantly which impressed my hubby loads! and then I saw Simon II and fell in love! so my dear hubby's heart melted and gave in to us getting 2 kitty's! and I love him dearly for it.

I would recommend the Animal Anti Cruelty League anyday, the animals are well looked after and loved!
