When you see lots of lovely ideas about what to do with toddlers, you think to yourself, yes, I can do that, I can be that mum… 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Nothing but messy, yet very, very entertaining!
Excuse the state of the kitchen.. .one of those toddler days.
Attempting to make banana and BlackBerry porridge sticks. This is the part of the recipe that says put the mixture in my cup, pretend to eat and then put back in the bowl…
Transferring said mixture…
Oiling paper for cinnamon and honey biscuits (with added raisins as we decided to throw our snack in too).
Not sure what we’re doing here… Come back next week where we master puff and choux pastry. 🙈
I love Autumn. Fishing out my knitted jumpers and getting the chimney cleaned for colder weather. Another excuse for 1 more hot chocolate and not shaving you legs!🙈😁
This year I have a little piglet to share this with too. At 8 months old she is wide awake and taking more and more in.
So I decided to take her blackberry picking! I’m lucky that at my mum and dad’s house there are lots of fields with blackberries in the hedges. So I don’t have to worry about car fumes etc…
Excuse the green cardi… but it’s so warm!
And of course we tried a few on the way. When your little one is saying “Yum!” You know that you’re on to a winner.
The dogs of course joined us too! Misbehaving as usual and fighting over a stick or too. Plus of course aggravating my mother!
Even the chucks came out to see what we were doing.
I talked to Piglet about the colour and how they tasted sweet.
I didn’t let Piglet pick them because of all the bramble… but I don’t think she minded having the job of chief taster!
We used the blackberries for our pudding.
I also made some yummy but very messy Blackberry Mousse and blackberry porrige sticks. (Recipes to follow).
Very messy but also very good fun for baby led weaning.
So get outside. There are still some blackberries out there foryou and your little one to enjoy.
