L’s Kiddyum Review

Please tell me I am not the only one who sometimes finds themselves standing at the fridge wondering how on earth you are going to prepare a meal with what you’ve got, one that’s quick, easy and will be enjoyed by your toddler. It’s not just me is it?

I wish I was the kind of mum who was organised enough to always have meals planned and live with a permanently stocked fridge, but I am not. So when Kiddyum got in touch to see if L would like to try some of their frozen ready meal range I was really excited.

Colouring to Keep my Toddler Happy

It doesn’t matter how hard I try, sometimes I have to work whilst the little one occupies himself.

The main problem with this is that as soon as I am doing something, he decides that is way more exciting than whatever was holding his attention up until that point, so I have had had to become the master of quick and easy activities that he actually loves.

Things My Toddler Says that Make Me Melt

What things do your kids say that just make you melt?

L is at the stage with his learning that new words are coming thick and fast. Sometimes they are very amusing and sometimes he is just so cute it makes me melt inside.

At the moment my favourite words are Apple or ‘papple’ which is just really sweet I also love that he calls any horse or donkey a ‘keekaw’.  If he wants to be picked up he looks and me and says ‘mup’ and cuddles are ‘cuggle’. Aww.

What is not so great but highly amusing/embarrassing depending on the situation are the rude mispronunciations.

 

We currently have an issue with socks and sticks. Hmmmm.

So what words do your kids have it make you melt inside or laugh out loud?
