March is coming to an end and I've managed to keep my whole household healthy for a whole year! It took lots of doses of vitamins, garlic and healthy foods including juicing, but it was worth all the work. This week was the first time that a cold has creeped into this house. I'm thankful that the only symptoms I'm dealing with are a few runny noises, sneezes and a slight cough.
With this slight cold that means we are pretty much stuck to the house drinking tea, watching movies by the fire and popping vitamin C like their candy. That leaves me with a somewhat bored 2 year old.
I find that when I have something new for Toddler to do he loves it for a whole whopping 20 mins and he's done, not just for that day, but month. The only thing that will keep him occupied and happy is playing in the sink. My idea of the day was to put a big dish in the middle of our living room filled with water and him to throw his stones into the water like he does at a lake. It went good for that 20 min.
Then my next step of entertainment was to go outside for some chicken eggs. That really got him excited as this is his first time. Once we reached the coop we found Sassy laying an egg, so that was a no-go. I guess we'll be trying that one again after his nap.

Toddler is no longer in a crib, but in a toddler bed. I didn't want to have to take the railing down, but he got his knee stuck in-between the bars causing major bruising not once, but twice. So last night was his first night he slept in his toddler bed. It made me nervous because I know his sleeping habits. I now have cardboard up to keep him from falling.
After Toddler nap we managed to get those eggs. Our batch wasn't as big as it usually is (8 eggs), but 5 eggs was pretty good non-the-less. I think he really enjoyed getting those eggs because once we were inside he wouldn't give up the basket with the eggs. Those eggs made the best lunch with toast, egg, avocado and pickled onions on top.
Doesn't Toddler make the cutest little farmer?! I'm so excited to move in two years to a bigger property, house and where I can play farmer. One of my dreams is to own a farm with a beautiful cottage home, animals, orchards and gardens galore, but to be able to hire people to do the work.
