My Toddler Tastes

Written by: wme_admin | Date: 21/12/2015

Before Children (BC) I liked to think of myself as having fairly sophisticated tastes.

I liked exotic and spicy foods. I like interesting documentaries that expanded my mind and left me thinking. I enjoyed challenging debates with my friends about sociology and philosophy. I even loved a big fat flat glass filled with ice and topped with expensive vodka and a wedge of fresh lime.

But these tastes are now just a memory. It seems that these BC tastes have been sneakily replaced by Toddler Tastes.

Yes, I have the very unsophisticated tastes of a 3 year old.

I like simple plain foods that are served at room temperature. I have even started enjoying a squirt of tomato sauce with my dinner. I love junky mindless tv like The Bachelor, The Kardashians, but even more so toddleresque of me I love laughing at Shaun the Sheep, and marvelling at the magical kingdom of Ben & Holly. My penchant for vodka has now changed to sugary alco. I even love popping a straw in for that extra bit of fun. Not to mention how much I now love stringer cheese, dippity bix and 2 minute noodles.

What happened to me?

Has being a stay at home mum to a 2 and 3 year old meant that I am outnumbered and by the process of majority rules I have let their tastes overcome mine?

Will my tastes now ‘grow’ as theirs do? In a few years time will I be secretly loving a cut lunch in a Barbie lunch box? Will that lunch be deli meat and sauce sandwiches without the crusts?

Argh what has happened to me?

Not sure, but I am off to have a nice big bowl of coco pops.

I bought this bag for when my granddaughter comes over to play.
She loves to sit in it on the back porch and watch the birds in the trees.

My little one loves his teddy bear play mat and sleeps on it all the time.

Basically anytime he's sleeping while I'm not in bed, he's on his bear mat.

Ever since he got it he doesn't like sleeping in his bouncer anymore.

Thank you for such great service and all your help with phone calls and holding products ect and super fast delivery as well.

Kelly I cannot thank you enough for your assistance and patience.
Your after sales service was brilliant. If only all businesses could provide the
same level of after sales service life would be so much easier.
Especially when you are a tired and confused new mum!

Thank you Kelly for your wonderful customer service, responsiveness to my enquiries and beautiful products.
You have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and I highly recommend your online store.
I love my little photo albums (and other keepsakes) and I am sure I will be able to fill them very quickly with pictures of my little girl. Thank you again.

The baby bean bag is a fantastic new concept that is a great alternative to a bouncer. An item that will grow with my daughter for years to come.
The product has been well researched and the workmanship/fabric is of high quality.

I have bought a beanbag, elephant playmat and the owl nightlight. They're all amazing quality!

Perfect for my little grey and white nursery.

I couldn't be happier with my purchases.

The option of afterpay is brilliant and takes away a lot of stress, shipping is fast .

Not to mention; It feels even better buying from an Australian owned business. (Complete with a hand written thank you note from Kelly on the invoice)

I would recommend this company to anyone.

I purchased a gorgeous blue bean bag for my friend at work.
I was able to pick up the bean bag, already filled, en-route to the baby shower!
The mum-to-be absolutely loved the bean bag, and her little boy looks divine in it now!
Highly recommended :)

I bought the KJ Essentials plush lamb play mat for my little girl and it is one of our favourite things!

We love that you can just throw it in the wash so that she always has a clean soft place to lie and play on.

It is awesome for tummy time as the non slip backing keeps it in place while she is rocking and rolling and head banging and the padding stops her from knocking her head every time she drops it.

When we aren't using it, we keep it her nursery for looks - it is the cutest floor rug!

We also take it to places like mothers group meetings and to grans so that we know
she has a home comfort that is safe and hygenic and comfy
