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. Even in these first few months I have noticed a distinct sibling pattern emerge between my girls. Thankfully Miss [...]

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 [...]

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 have never been a girly girl. I’ve never been into frilly things, unicorns or becoming a princess when I was little (at least as far as I remember it). Hair bows, sweet dresses, doll houses, flowery patterns, make-up and nail polish just didn’t interest me as much as other things did.  I was more [...]

It was a dreary depressing day last week when I read the graphic novel Skim by Mariko Tamaki and illustrated by Jillian Tamaki (ISBN: 9780888997531,Groundwood Books, 2008) and I have to say the story didn’t help bring me out of the doldrums, not in the slightest, and that was a good thing.

I remember when I was pregnant with my daughter, sitting on the train and thinking about this completely new experience. My most astounding thought was that it was so interesting that arguably the most “adult” time in one’s life, perparing to be in charge of another human being for life, was largely marked (for me [...]
