Cool Orange drink but with 0.5% alcohol could the kids get drunk?

July 10th, 2010

With all the hot weather in Ireland recently it’s been nice to see the shops stocked with many different options for a cool drink and on a recent trip with Mia PdL to the shops I got the famous call “I’m thristy Daddy”. When Mia says thristy she means “I’m thristy now” so lucky enough we were right beside the soft drinks fridge and so I let her choose.
Mia picked this drink from Fentimans, an unknow brand to me, but the drink looked organey and cold so we went for it.

Mia took a couple of sips and pronounced, “Ahh nice beer”, which I must admit I didn’t take too much notice of, then a few seconds latter ….. “Ahh nice beer”, now I’m curious, what’s this 3 year old on about, so I take a sip …… wow that does smell and taste like beer and then I look at the label

Yeap in the small print it reads “Not more than 0.5% alcohol by volume”. Holy crap that’s the same as a Beck non-alcoholic beer, what do I do, I have questions, is this fine for kids, should it be in reach of other soft drinks in the shop, I was and I am still totally unsure.

According to the official Fentimans site “Naturally fermented, they contain less than 1/2% alcohol, so they may be enjoyed by all ages”

But I’m not so sure, what do you think?

Daniel’s first hair cut

May 15th, 2010

A big day today, headed down to the Jolly Barber on John Street and brought Daniel along for his first hair cut

He was as bright as a button and happy out, as his baby hair wings were being taken off.

The only hassle we had was when he decided to start eating his cut hair, which he soon found out wasn’t too nice at all!

Well given that Daniel has the physique of Keith Wood at the moment it was only fitting that Auntie Aoife & Uncle Bobby kitted him out for Ireland.

He later “tried” out some new skills

Kids in a New York Playground:- Nerve Recking

April 11th, 2010

Over the Easter we had the pleasure of attending Aileen’s surprise birthday party which was held in Queens, New York. Just across the road from the venue there was a playground, perfect I thought …… not so perfect when I got Kate, Mia & Daniel there. It was sheer madness trying to keep eyes on all 3 of them, but in the end I guess we all had some fun!

Mia just loves her lollipops
