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. Not only lucky, but thankful to have found a partner who is not only a great … More A Thank You To My Children’s Dad
We don’t get them very often, because let’s face it, snow is a part of a Canadian winter and we are generally equipped to deal with a big snow fall, but today I decided it was a snow day. And it wasn’t fully due to the amount of snow we had either…. Yes, there was … More Snow Day!
I am not too sure who likes the movie Frozen more, my children or me. 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.

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. My first reaction was to laugh and I told her no, it’s usually done sometime in the morning after we get back from drop off. I even admitted that sometimes … More Spilled Milk, Dirty Dishes and Messy Floors
I have a love/hate relationship with winter, but really it’s mostly hate. Just when I thought Spring was ready to show up and stay, I was surrounded by snowflakes on my way to pick up my daughter from school. The officially start of Spring was last week, but winter is just not letting up. I … More The Sun Always Wins
After I get home from taking my 4-year-old to kindergarten, I try to get the kitchen back in order as I have no time in the morning rush to do it before we leave. I admit, this is when I rely on Elmo and the rest of the Sesame Street gang to entertain the other … More Beat Of A Different Drum
My daughter can be bossy and I will continue to tell her so. And when my son is bossy, I will tell him also. Guess what? When my daughter thinks I am bossy, she tells me too. Most of the time, it’s because I am being bossy and I want to tell her that’s it’s … More I Am Not Banning Bossy
