Where have 10 weeks gone? Our little Q-bug is now a 2-month-old and I have been enjoying an extended babymoon, ignoring almost everything else but my precious girl!

I’m one of those moms you know the ones that give the more educational gifts. I really can’t help it, I love learning and always have and I want kids to experience that feeling too. Sure, I add the action figures and the licenced toys especially if I know that the child loves a particular [...]

I’ve never seen my husband more proud than when Miss Mouse first said “hockey” in an appropriate context (as she pointed at the TV screen). Okay maybe when she correctly points to each member of The Doors when asked: “Which was is Robbie? Which one is John? Where’s Jim?” It always makes me chuckle but [...]

It’s game day…er…rather game night and I am all atwitter! At 7:30 pm, Eastern Standard Time are going to beat the Russians and bring home gold medal in the World Junior Championship once again for Canada (where it belongs of course!) So GO CANADA GO! I love sports, both playing and cheering, but I knew early [...]
