Summer may be drawing to a close, but it is not over yet! I still have a few BBQs lined up to celebrate those last warm summer days before we are back to coats, hats and mitts. When we have get togethers with friends everyone pitches in so that it is not all on the host to provide all the food. And with my love affair with chocolate I often offer to bring a dessert. Now
"Mom can I play hockey?" "Mom I want to try baseball" "Mom lets go swimming" " Mom I want to learn to play guitar" These are all requests that I have received from my oldest in a single day! When talking about having kids people worry about saving for university or college, but really it is the extracurricular activities that can take ab big bite out of your bank account.
Shopping online has become essential for me. With 3 young kids getting out to the store can be an..... adventure... Just this week I was out with Roo who a major melt down in the parking lot with full on rolling on the pavement and everything. Fun times I tell you, fun times. Online shopping just makes things easier. My favourite way to pay for online purchases is with
Indoor cats have it made, they have luxuries that outdoor cats do not, they don't have to catch their food, they have warm beds to lounge in and someone to rub their ears...but only on their terms of course! They also live longer lives as they are not exposed to predators, other cats, some diseases, pour weather conditions and more. However, an indoor cat needs enrichment in
Oh bedtime, how it has changed. Before children I used to stay up late and wander to bed after 11:00 p.m. every night. Now, as a mother of two (adorable girls worth every sleepless night I might add) I'm in bed around 9:00 p.m...9:30 if I'm lucky. There are several reasons for this, the first is babies and children have a lot of energy, and I think they take it all from
It is no secret that we love LEGO around the Little Miss Kate household. I mean we have had a LEGO birthday party, LEGO Cake, and lots of LEGO DUPLO fun. So when I heard about the LEGO Imagine Nation Tour I knew it would be something to check out with the kids. If you have not heard about the tour yet, the LEGO Imagine Nation Tour will let you and your kids experience LEGO
Have you ever found something you loved online but then second-guessed buying it because you had not seen it in person? Will it be the right size? Just how big is 6" x 8"? I wonder if the color on my screen is true to the color of the product? Will it be big enough to fit all of my stuff? Is the sizing accurate or should size up? Shopping online can be quick,

Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. A motto that we should all be taking to heart this week. May 1-7 is Emergency Preparedness week, and this year I think people are taking it to heart more then ever. We have seen just how quickly an emergency situation can catch everyone by surprise. As much as we like to think we are in control, Mother Nature steps in to show
Okay, so I have an addiction to high quality baby items...ranging from strollers to diaper bags to of course - clothes. Don't get me wrong, my children wear every brand under the sun. I'm not opposed to getting a bargain and I excitedly accept any form of hand-me-downs! But you have to admit, there is something nice about getting an item that's been designed with every
Well it might not feel like it this week, but spring is coming soon. Even with the most recent snowfall it is time to start thinking about getting ready for spring. Just like changing the batteries in your smoke detectors, the changing of the seasons is a great reminder too also do some spring cleaning and maintenance on your vehicle. After dealing with snow, slush, salt and
As parents we are always trying set a good example for our kids. We work hard to teach them right from wrong, how to be polite, and set them on the road to success. Milestones like taking their first steps and learning to write their name are celebrated. But along the way, we sometimes forget one thing that is critical to your child's success and future health.
