Okay well….it’s been a little while…but I haven’t forgotten you or this blog. I swear! I’ve thought of it often and have wanted to write but I am almost completely enthralled with my two girls and find it hard to tear myself away for anything and truly it’s hard to find things more interesting than [...]

As the new baby dust settles I find I have a tad more time to write my blog. Having two is like increasing your child quotient exponentially. Really, it’s like having 4 especially at the beginning.

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 [...]

I’m a lucky person in many ways. One of the areas I am truly blessed is in my family. I have a large extended family (and super in-laws) and it’s a nice feeling. Another great part of my family is that there are a lot of women. I have a number of aunts who I [...]

So it’s officially over: not winter my friends, but the Toronto Maple Leafs’ playoff hopes! The Leafs did lose in a shoot-out but when Buffalo won their fate was officially sealed and the faithful let out a collective sigh of resignation. End of story. Mathematical equations and remote possibilities are no longer, there is simply no [...]

Yesterday, as we were in the chaotic rush known as weekday mornings at my house, I scooped up my ever growing daughter and exclaimed “wow you are getting heavy!” Our little pint-sized parrot immediately said “Heavy Emme” and pointed to herself.
