How I Cook Without a Toddler at my Feet

This post contains affiliate links. 

I have shared previously a couple of BabyCake's favorite activities: 
Today I wanted to share a new activity that has been working particularly well when I'm trying to cook and don't want her around me at the stove - letter magnets on the refrigerator. 

It's really as simple as grabbing a pack of magnet letters. There is a huge variety available on Amazon HERE. Because BabyCakes has been watching Sesame Street she's really into letters and numbers. Our main refrigerator is stainless steel so it is not magnet, but our little beverage fridge is magnetic and serves as a perfect canvas for her to play on. If your refrigerator is not magnetic you can also grab one of these magnet easels. Although we also have a flat magnetic board I've found that she is much more entertained when she can stand up and play. 

How are you keeping your toddler entertained while you cook?

Imperfect Moments Make the Best Memories

The other day I was tickled when I noticed the lock-screen photos my husband and I had chosen. There were a few similarities: 

1. We both chose pictures from our trip to Sesame Place which has been one of the highlights of our summer (read that story here.)

2. We both chose pictures of each other with our daughter. 

3. We both chose very unmanicured photos. In mine he's wet and BabyCakes isn't looking at the camera. In his BabyCakes is in motion and there's a bunch of stuff in the background/foreground. 

4. In both pictures we are smiling ear to ear. Real genuine smiles. Not "I'm taking this for Instagram" smiles. 

This is why we go so well together. Our photo choices are a reflection of what is important to us; our family. Our lives aren't perfect but they don't have to be for us to be enjoying them.

Imperfect moments make the best memories.
