Potty training Monkey went far smoother then I could have ever imagined. Yes we have had accidents, and with the arrival of Little Bear we did see some regression with Monkey.

I learned very quickly after Monkey was born there were some brands of clothes that I LOVED, and others, well not so much. One that stood out right from the beginning was Carters - their newborn size fit Monkey pretty well even though he was a preemie, and everything was so CUTE! I love shopping at the Carters store, but didn't get to go as often as I would like as the store is
Did you hear the news??? Spokes candies Red and Yellow up and quit M&Ms last week! That's right as of February 7th, 2013, they hung up their shells and walked off the job. Now you won't see to many tears around here, Red was never my favorite. I did enjoy his super bowl commercial, but he is a little too much of a diva for me. The official resignation letter was posted
My dates for Valentine's Day...
Has Valentine's Day snuck up on anyone else? I feel like I am still putting away Christmas presents and getting the house back in order and here we are at Valentines already! I am not prepared at all. I did get Hubs a present already, but I have nothing for the kids or Grandparents yet. Luckily Hallmark Canada is ready and has everything you need for Valentine's Day gift
I knew when we had kids our grocery bill would go up, especially with boys, but I never guessed how quickly it would go up. Monkey is not even 3 and Little Bear still nursing and already our bill has gone up 25%! I can't even imagine how much we will be spending in 5 years.

Phew a lot of guidelines to follow but I was up for the challenge of finding a

One of my favorite adventure from last summer was taking Monkey to the Toronto Zoo. We has such a fun day exploring and watching the animals. His eyes would just light up as we walked among
Kids grow out of their clothes WAY too fast! Little Bear is 3 months old and already busting out of his 3-6 month clothes. I am going to need to do the switch over to 6 month clothes before too long. One of my favorite places to shop for both the boys is Old Navy. Adorable outfits at reasonable prices, and they wash up so well too. I love the way their clothes fit, the
