Okay well….it’s been a little while…but I haven’t forgotten you or this blog. I swear!

In the home stretch of pregnancy, I am finding it harder and harder to feel passionate about much beyond nesting, sleeping, and finding the perfect chocolate covered cashew.

Okay so tonight’s book isn’t a children’s book per se but in many ways can be the most life changing book for your child! I am a proud member of the La Leche League of Canada and would have never survived the initial uncertainty, stress and trauma of giving birth five weeks prematurely without them. [...]

I’m still on a bit of WOTS high. After a long car ride home yesterday, including a pickup of the hubby’s car from his friends place post-hockey draft melee (because he DOES NOT DRINK AND DRIVE EVER!), a quick and dirty dinner, walking dogs, bath, a late bedtime and review writing I did not have [...]
