More Product Endorsements

We were out today and swung past the Country Nutrition store where we picked up a few favorites, including...

Spinach bites...basically like a potato cake with lots of spinach. They are super tasty. I had to keep myself from eating all of Tessa's and she loved them too. I wonder if I could make such a thing myself and freeze them, hmmm. But then I guess they wouldn't be shaped like stars and bears.


QB's (I have no idea what that stands for), pretty much the best thing ever. They are basically rice krispie treats filled with ice cream. What a great idea and only 3 WW points! I can only find them at the health food store here in town (the whole reason we went actually) but I suspect they are also available at places like Whole Foods.


Per suggestion of my friend Traci, yesterday we went to the teacher store to look for activity books for 2 years old. Everything else I had found were for 3 and up. Let me just say the teacher store (United Education I think it's called) is very cool and apparently not just for teachers. They had tons of books, toys and art stuff. I swear between that place and the toy prices at Buy Buy Baby, I'm never shopping at Target again. Okay well maybe that's a little drastic.

Anyway I found these cool workbooks for two year olds. They are super basic. We bought three "I can" books...fold, cut and trace. She hasn't tried them yet, so I will report back!

Those spinach things sound really good! Great tip on the teacher store, I look at workbooks in all kinds of stores and that never even occurred to me!

Get her some safety scissors if you don't already have them. Also....once you teach her to cut, be prepared for "haircuts!"

Okay, after much pondering about the QB's...it finally hit me (I am teaching geometry at the moment, so that may have helped) "cubes". Since they are shaped like cubes. What do you think?

Uh, the next time I'm over I totally want a QB! Who knew?..I think that could change my life! I must also say, while I think it's great that you got workbooks and Tessa is like a savant "I can cut" just sounds wrong hahaha.
