Who in the heck is Santa Claus and why is he the one that gets all of the credit? I'm one of those "new age" mommies. I have long discussions with my 5 year old son, I let him know that his opinion is always valid, but, of course, not as valid as mine. I believe that a lie is a lie and it is a written law that it can not happen in our house, or, there will be a "time out". So, given the fact that I have made this rule, law, how can I in good conscious teach my son about this overweight… Continue

Of all the meats available for consumption turkey is the healthiest of them all - mainly because it is lower in fat. What a great treat it is for us and our dogs when we get to enjoy turkey left overs for the entire week or longer. Grab hold of a healthy snack for your dog and at the same time envelope dog wellness practices by making his treats at home instead of store bought - for a… Continue

"Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden." Corrie Ten Boom
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. Philippians 4:6

Jay blew into our lives like a whirl wind. He was my cousin’s fiancé’s cousin (kinda confusing, I know) and we met because my cousin lived in the apartment upstairs from me.
We started talking slowly – my car got stuck in the snow a few times and he would come down and get me out.
Then we started actually hanging out, and the first time he came over, we talked nonstop for 4 hours! It was great. I was actually happy when I was with him, and I felt so… Continue

There is Nothing Worse...
... than folding and putting away all of the laundry piled on the couch - and then finding another full load in the dryer.
... than changing your baby's diaper - just so she can poop in it.
... than cleaning your entire kitchen - only to have the kids request a snack that requires your kitchen to become unclean.
.... than the kids wanting to finally sleep in when you have somewhere to be, but being up at the crack of… Continue

I was a little snotty with the assistant principal at “K’s” parent-teacher conference last night. The middle school was alive with activity parents and students were all over the school meeting with teachers, signing up for after-school activities and having photos taken for what I don’t even know. I don’t know because none of that activity had anything to do with me or my child.
My child is a beautiful 13-year-old girl who wears diapers, speaks in two-word phrases at most and arrives… Continue

One of the sweetest things “K” does is at bedtime. After we’ve given her a shower, put on her p.j.’s, tucked her into bed and, of course, given her a kiss good night, she will pat the bed next to her, smile at whichever one of us is putting her down, and say “here”. She won’t stop until you lay down next to her.
It’s a tight squeeze on her twin bed with her, me, multiple pillows and a large stuffed Blue doll. Usually my head is resting on Blue’s foot and my legs are hanging off the… Continue

My husband was putting “J” down to bed the other night. I had already said good night and hugged and kissed him and was downstairs folding laundry or putting away the dishes or performing some other evening chore, I’m not sure which and I lost track of how long the two of them had been upstairs when my husband called for me on the stairs. “Can you come help me with?” he asked.
Something must be wrong; I could hear the stress in my husband’s voice. I scurried to the stairs and asked,… Continue

Santa’s not coming to our house this Christmas. Earlier in the year we decided to drop the bomb and tell “J” the truth. It’s been a long year. Telling “J” the “truth” about Santa has been an eye-opener to us about where “J” functions.
Like many people with special needs “J” really struggles with conceptualizing. He is extremely literal. Wrapping his brain around the fact that Santa is not “real” has been nearly impossible and has given us so much insight to how his brain works and how… Continue

“J” had a headache today. He spent most of the morning asleep on the couch and his dad and I spent the morning trying not to hover. Thirteen year old boys get headaches. Everyone gets a headache now and then. Everyone feels a little run down and naps on the couch on a lazy Sunday. When that person is “J”, however, my heart sinks.
It’s an almost every day feeling I describe as “waiting for the other shoe to drop.” You know you’re downstairs and you hear someone taking their shoes off… Continue

I hate complaining about something and not offering any solutions. And while my solutions often fall somewhere between “just hold hands and love each other” and “smite them all”, I often come up with something that works.
So, with that in mind, here are my thoughts on creating a positive, empowering and mother & baby friendly breastfeeding environment. I focus on my local hospital, the IWK, and my province but the information I provide can be used by…
