I’m astounded that I am astounded that, in fact, having another baby means I have less time to blog and not more! This new baby makes me busier than I ever have been (who knew?) and at times the number of chores and tasks seems to have doubled as if I had 4 kids instead [...]

My latest Labour Day weekend was filled with an eclectic group of activities and people. It started with art and followed by an impromptu picnic in a downtown Toronto Park.

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 am happy because our second child will be a rabbit and therefore possess one of the most fortunate horoscopes out [...]

  One of my observations as a new parent is that when children want something, they want it NOW! Not in a few minutes, not after Mommy ties her shoelace/finishes her meal/goes to the bathroom but right this very instant. It’s interesting to watch my own reactions to my daughter’s immediate wants (I saw wants [...]

January in Canada is not for the faint of heart. It’s cold here and in a country where the temperature can actually dip to minus forty or fifty below, we are a hearty people. We are a people so accustomed to a Canadian winter that in fact some of us aren’t fazed by a little [...]

I’m realizing that things don’t always go the way you plan it especially when you have a little one.
