This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Mobile Shop for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Canada day is always a special celebration in the Little Miss Kate household. It is more than just another long weekend, for us it is a time to get together with family. Good food, great company and celebrating the amazing country we live in - what more could you ask
What is one thing that you use with your child almost daily from the time they are born until they are over eight years old? There are not too many products that fit it that category with one exception... car seats. Car seat safety is always on my mind every time we travel. For something that we use so much, people can still make mistakes when installing or buckling a child
It has been an amazing summer for us here in Southern Ontario but all good things must come to an end. As much as I love the warm weather, I am excited about fall! With the leaves changing colour, the local fall fairs in full swing and all of the decor popping up, how can you not be excited...and can I mention pumpkin spice? But amongst this seasonal bliss the dreaded cold
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
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.

When did it become the normal to be so very busy? These days, it seems as though we are all expected to be in five places at once and juggle the weight of the world.

"Can I have the iPad?" "Can I watch?" "iPad Pleeeeeease" things I hear daily from my 4 year old when he comes home from school. He started kindergarten this year and was having some trouble sitting during circle time. If he had a good day, he was able to watch Netflix on the iPad when he got home after school. I will admit it was not necessarily the best choice in reward,
"Mommy I want a snowboard" - words I did not expect from Monkey, my 4 year old son, but that is exactly what he has been asking for the past few weeks. I think Monkey is getting excited about winter coming soon. And why shouldn't he be excited? Living in Canada we can embrace winter and all it has to offer including getting outside for some family fun time. That is just
Is it just me or has this winter felt like a loooonng one already? Between early snow accumulation, ice storms, and record freezing temperatures it seems like no part of Canada has been untouched by winters wrath. You are not the only one ready for the summer sun. A group of Canadian bloggers has come together to help keep you warm this winter. How do you ask? With a Winter
Let's just say Monkey is not the biggest fan of winter...
