Forgive me readers for I have not absconded and am still blogging. It’s been 2 weeks since my last entry and I have to confess that I have been taking that time to myself, to hang out with Miss Mouse, to organize and mainly to sleep before baby came. And guess what….she’s here! Quincey Ellin [...]

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.

  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 [...]

When I was pregnant with my daughter I was convinced I was having a boy.  I thought the hormones coursing through my veins and body meant that I was one with the growing being inside of me and that I could feel him. So confident was I, that I bought boy’s clothes (or more unisex [...]

I was asked by a friend the other day if I could recommend a great Canadian-authored title to introduce the topic of siblings and I was embarrassed to experience what some refer to as a “brain fart” (hey, I didn’t coin the term). I couldn’t think of one that stood out and so I just [...]
