I am not really a "girly" girl. I don't normally wear make up, a ponytail or bun is as fancy as I get with my hair, and I have less then 10 pairs of shoes in my closet. However that does not mean that I don't like be pampered every so often, especially around Mother's Day! But what do you get the Mom who does not even own foundation or know how to put on eye shadow

Little Bear is exclusively breastfed, but that doesn't mean he does not take a bottle. He gets a bottle of expressed milk from Hubs every night before bed. It allows him to have some one-on-one time with daddy and be very comfortable with taking a bottle, and allows me time to pump and build up a freezer stash of milk. However, it also means washing bottles and pumping
It is the time of year when every day is a guessing game - what to wear??? Will I need by snow boots & winter coat, rain gear or a hat & sandals? The weather changes so much from one day to the next you never know what you are going to get. All I want is sunny days and +15 so I can break out my new Orthaheel sandals. Not only are they adorable, but they are so
I am taking part in ABC Friday - a fun photo sharing meme Each week is a new letter theme, starting with A of course, we will work our way through the alphabet. P is for,,, Pumpkin! Yes I am totally that mother who dresses her kids up to match the holidays. Monkey had a shirt and usually a cloth diaper to match every major holiday and even some of the minor ones like St.
Anyone who grew up in the 80's remembers Nintendo - you know the original Nintendo with controllers that only had 1 arrow pad and 2 buttons. I remember spending Friday evenings with my friends playing Mario, Tetris or having a friendly Dr. Mario competition. So when I heard that the Ontario Science Centre's new exhibit Game On 2.0 opened I knew that Hubs, who is an avid
Batman Returns - a pint sized Batman is ready to rid the city of evil!
Does your Hubby know that Mother's Day is coming up in less than 3 weeks. Have you started to drop hints about what you would like as a gift for Mother's Day? Relaxing bath products? Some new clothes? Something for the garden or kitchen? This year I knew exactly what I wanted: a new diaper bag. Not too big, not too small and for it not to look too much like a diaper bag.
Signs of Spring are popping up everywhere . The snow has melted much to Monkey's dismay (he still is asking to go shoveling), the rain is turning the grass nice and green, and the birds are our singing. Which means it is time for the Spring Cash Giveaway! A great group of Canadian bloggers have come together to offer you a fantastic prize. Enter the Rafflecopter form below
I am taking part in ABC Friday - a fun photo sharing meme Each week is a new letter theme, starting with A of course, we will work our way through the alphabet. O is for ... One! Doesn't seem like that long ago we were celebrating Monkey's first birthday! When Monkey turned ONE it was very bitter sweet for me. It was a wonderful celebration with many family and friends.
In some ways being a mom of 2 has been easier than I expected. Monkey has welcomed Little Bear with open arms and embraced the roll of big brother. Our new family just seemed to "click", and we quickly fell into a new routine. However being a mom of 2 is not without new challenges - it is not 2 against 1 anymore, it is 1 on 1 all the time. You don't get the same down time
I come from a kitchen dancing family. Growing up we always had music going in the house, the radio or a mix tape (yes remember those!) playing on the boom box. While mom was cooking or cleaning we would dance around singing and laughing. Get my Grandma and Aunt over and we would have a house full of kitchen dancers! Music was not just confined to the kitchen, there was
I spotted a few signs of Spring this week - Yippee!
