Cake-Pops by Yolli

Cake-pops have been on my list of things to try with Potato for a while now. Although they can be quite fiddly, there are plenty of steps he can get involved with. At 2 years and nearly 3 months old, Potato’s fine motor skills and concentration are improving and I these would be a good fun challenge, with hopefully delicious results at the end.

When Yolli asked if I would like to review some of their products with Potato, it was the perfect opportunity to give cake-pops ago.

Peach Melba Ice-lollies

I love ice cream and ice lollies. There’s nothing better for cooling yourself down on hot summer days like these. Potato seems to be of much the same opinion.

The downside is that the best ones are usually full of sugar and fat and all those other tasty bad things. I first made these Peach Melba ice-lollies as a bit of a compromise but I must admit, I’ve become rather addicted to them. I think it’s the knowledge that they are pretty healthy at the same time as being super-delicious and refreshing. You can cut the sugar right out if you want to.

Try them out for yourself! They really are the perfect taste of summer.

Invitation to Play: Threading Colours

Occasionally, while Potato naps or once he’s asleep in the evening, I try to set up something new for him to play with when he wakes up.

I’d seen something like this on Pinterest a while ago, so I’ve been collecting the materials for it for a while.

When He Grows Up

Potato is 2 years and 2 months old.
Like most toddlers, he shows aptitude for and interest in, a huge range of skills and pastimes. Like most toddlers, what entertains him for hours one week, barely turns his head the next. Where one day he shows progress with something, the next day he seems to have forgotten all about it.
Yet I’m constantly amazed at the number of people who are seemingly able to map out his life from watching him for just a few moments.
