‘Collections of cute’ posts

The Last Time

This beautiful poem made its way into my facebook news feed today, reminding me of the poem for parents we featured last year, This Small. There’s no such thing as too often when it comes to being reminded to appreciate the little things, nobody wants to look back and regret the things they didn’t do. So squeeze a little tighter, sing that ‘one more song’ at bedtime, because this time, might be the last time.

Sweet citrus stuff for Vitamin C Day

Next Friday, April 4th, is Vitamin C Day. Yep, it appears there is a ‘day’ for everything!

In fact, Wednesday even marked ‘Make up your own holiday day’! Perhaps it’s because of that invention we have so many other days such as Vitamin C Day! Anyway, enough waffling on…

I decided to get creative with a round up inspired by Vitamin C Day, and instead of bringing you fruit ideas I thought I’d bring you sweet citrus-inspired stuff instead!

Like so…

Awesome stuff (from top to bottom and left to right):

Cute right?!

Although perhaps not as beneficial to your kids’ Vitamin C levels. So just be sure to throw some actual fruit into the mix whilst they’re playing with the cute fake fruit stuff ;)
