So, I’m throwing this out there to you, because I’m not quite sure I did the right thing.
A little background:
My family is very close with another family. They are wonderful people and include us in so many of their celebrations. This weekend was no different. They have a lovely backyard with a pool, a dining area, a fireplace and an outdoor theater. It’s always just a FUN food fest there!
They were hosting a High School graduation party for their niece. Their… Continue

It's been a rough few days with seeming more lows than highs in the mix. But as usual I made it through, with some laughs and love from my babies. I thought I'd share some of the photo memories that helped soothe my frazzled nerves. This is from a family vacation in 2006 when we took a drive to the North coast with our neighbours.

Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week ~ Spanish Proverb
As I young child I had the Sweet Pickles books series by Jacqueline Reinach. My favorite book in this series was Goose Goofs Off.
This was a delightful tale of a Goose and how she was determined to take a day off. Throughout the book, Goose was confronted with different things that required her attention. However, her motto was I'll do it tomorrow.… Continue

I had an unexpected shock this morning when I rolled up the kitchen blind, mine and 4year old's beloved sunflower was lying on its side sprawled all over the decking. The blooming wind had blown him over overnight so I ran outside picked him up and carried on with my chores.
A few hours later after coming back from food shopping with all 4children I walked into the kitchen with… Continue

Having the kids around and trying to read blogs, fix my own page, not to mention that I'm new to this, is making my head hurt. Mommy this, mommy that, the game is not working, he is not sharing, it never ends. I wanted this to be my own little oasis to get away for a while, but they have followed me! Mommy time is nonexistant for me and it is driving me nuts.

Driving along today I over heard a conversation from the third row of the ‘Burban that sums up so clearly the difference between my three children…
Greg: “When I am an adult I am going to build houses for Hobos that are worth less than a cent so they can have somewhere to live.” (I am assuming he means “affordable”.)
Julia: “I am going to do that too, but first the Hobos have to give me the box they’re living in. Then I will give them a house. Then my kids can have a fun… Continue

One great writer once told me that some people have it, some people don’t.
And then you have Larry Bird, one monstrous, awkward cement mixer in the middle of the basketball court. He should be just standing there and get paid, you know what I mean? He’s an OBSTACLE not a basketball player! And yet, he’s one of the most amazing players known to man. Apart from that lithe speed-of-light Jordan guy. Phew!!
Larry Bird who moves at a speed so slow, I could beat him to the net.… Continue
