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.  But overall it has been much easier than I expected, that is until we tried to transition Monkey from the potty to the toilet... All of a sudden things got trickier,and messier. See boys need to aim,

Have you got you flu shot yet?  The last time I have the flu was about 10 years ago when I was in university.  It was so bad I even missed an exam (and writing a make up exam 2 months later is no fun at all!).  Ever since then I have made sure to get my flu shot every year.  Not just for me, but also for the people around me.  I lived with my Grandma for a couple of years and

And so it begins…  Little Bear was barely a week old when I got the call from daycare… Monkey was not feeling well I would need to come pick him up.  I knew we would be battling colds this winter but I had been hoping we could hold off on sickness in our house until Little Bear was a month old.  But toddlers are germy little creatures and sure enough Monkey had picked up a

It is hard to believe that it is November already, I feel like October disappeared into thin air between Thanksgiving, the ShesConnected Conference, and Halloween.  With the cool air settling in I was not surprised to see A.C. with his first runny nose of the cold & flu season.  It is amazing how quickly the runny noses set in, 1 cool Fall day and every kid in his daycare

Hard to believe there is only 1 week left of August, where did this last month go?  It seems to me that the second half of summer just disappeared and I still have a number of things on my summer “To Do” List.  One thing I was able to do was make some headway with cleaning projects in the house.  Member last month went I bared it all and showed you what my office and garage

Fact: Toddlers are dirty #HealthyFamilies

healthyfamilies2

Monkey is in prime toddler discovery mode.  He is fully mobile, able to climb and reach for things (he shouldn’t have), and wants to get into EVERYTHING.  All of which is wonderful for his sense of independence and learning about the world around him.  BUT… toddlers are dirty.  Even after you give them a bath they can’t seem to stay clean for longer than 5 minutes
