Do your kids have a favourite clothing item? Y’know the one they just do not want to take off. The one they cannot seem to live without. Maybe it’s a dress or tutu. Perhaps a pair of shoes or favourite t-shirt or pair of socks. For my daughter Ella, it is her toque. Side note, … More A Girl and Her Toque.
I could write a love note or whisper it in his ear but instead I am going publicly write about and declare my gratitude to the guy who supplied half of my kids’ DNA. I am a lucky one.

I sing all the songs along with them, I braid their hair (and mine) like Elsa and Anna do and I know I totally feed into the frenzy that Frozen has become. What can I say? I love it. I love Anna, … More You’re Invited to a Frozen Party!
Summer vacation is fun, but trying to find something to do every weekend or throughout the week to keep the kids entertained is a job in itself. Day trips are not cheap and with 3 kids, admission prices can really add up! It’s great to find alternatives to amusement parks and since my family loves the … More Campfires, S’mores and Bugs – We Trailer Camp!
My husband plays hockey once a week and most of the time it’s a “late” game. Often not starting till 9:30pm or later obviously because of this, I never take the kids to go and watch him play. Last week however, his game was nice and early, a 6:15pm start so I thought it would … More The Good Ole Hockey Game…
A friend of mine asked me not that long ago if I have time to clean the kitchen before I walk my daughter to school.
