The weather this past weekend was AMAZING. Winter didn't want to go quietly this year and we have been hit with a couple of Spring snow falls. But weekends like this past one make you forget about all of that while you ditch your coat and enjoy being outside in the sun. It was wonderful to get outside, start fixing up the garden and play at the park. However the
It's time for the BabyTime Show!! This April 22-24th get ready for the Toronto BabyTime Show being held at the International Centre in Mississauga. I always look forward to attending the BabyTime Show because there's nothing I like more than a room filled with new products and information, especially when it's about my favourite thing...my family.

"Mommy my hands hurt." A simple statement from my son mid-winter. However when I looked at his hands to investigate it didn't look very simple at all. It seems like almost overnight he went from having nice soft "baby" skin to red and chapped his hands. Having never really shown to have sensitive skin before this year, his hands have shown their true colors.

Skating and Hot Chocolate – the perfect winter family outing My kids started skating lessons this year. I have to admit, I like watching figure skating on TV. I grew up cheering on Elvis Stojko at the Olympics and World Championship competitions. But when it comes to me hitting the rink, I’m mostly in it for the hot chocolate. Even though I’m not the best on the ice, I
No matter how hard you try sometimes you may still find yourself sick. Blame it on the kids bringing home germs from school or that guy sitting across from you on the train sneezing everywhere. It is nearly impossible to protect yourself 100% of the time from cold and flu viruses. For the times we do end up sick, it is important to be part of the solution to stop

I have got a flu shot every year since 2005 - I was still in graduate school at the time, but my lab and office were located in a hospital. While I HATE needles, the thought of making a patient sick by touching the same elevator button or door handle didn't seem fair. By protecting myself, I was helping to protect them too. Plus it didn't hurt that they were giving out
Back in October, I wrote about how I was taking up the #SCZeroWaste challenge, and challenged you to make small changes as well. This challenge was given to us by SC Johnson, a company that is deeply committed to environmentally friendly, sustainable business practices. They resell or recycle 100 percent of their e-waste and surplus IT equipment, including hardware.
Before I had kids, I never understood why people would wait in a drive-thru line up when it was long at Tim Hortons. I would just park and run in to grab a coffee and be back on the road in no time. But is the people who don't have kids that know everything don't they. After my oldest was born, it was easy to say ok the line isn't very long I will wait. But anything
