Ok, yeah, I'll admit that my husband and I may have rock, paper, scissored our way through some of more undesirable aspects of parenting our twins. (I'm pretty sure we're not the only ones who do this either.) Because, sometimes, it just doesn't really make sense for BOTH of us to jump into a crappy situation. For…Continue

We've all seen those old television sitcoms (or at the very least, Fred and Wilma Flintstone) where the husband and wife are sleeping in separate beds. This mostly had to do with The Production Code of 1930 (also known also as the Hays Code), which, among other things, forbid showing a married couple with a double bed. Here's…Continue

This craft was not intended to be a Thanksgiving key chain. Matter-a-fact, it started off as a turkey headband. You know, those really cute turkey feathered headbands?
When I realized I didn’t have any 11×17…Continue

This is a super Christmas gift for children to make for their friends - it’s inexpensive, looks good and they have a nice time making it. It’s also nice to have a few of these made up as emergency gifts just in case unexpected guests drop by.

I cannot be the only one...who is inspired by the colors associated with the holidays; rich oranges, sparkling reds, and many a hue of green. In an attempt to show a little of that cheer, I decided to use my finger nails to express my love of the holiday color palette. I am not talking about creating small…Continue

Last week there was this beautiful theme circulating on many of the blogs I read. Each writer, in their own way, reminding themselves and their readers that perfection is what holds us back from being happy, connecting to others, and being true to ourselves. It's recognizing that who we are is ENOUGH that matters and creates change...

Chicken tacos are a family meal favourite at our house, the children just love choosing all their own fillings and creating their own taco just the way they like it. I use chicken thighs to make this meal - covering them with a spice mix and roasting them in the oven before shredding the…Continue

It's the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and I'm thinking about all the things that I'm thankful for, like my flat iron and those jeans that make me look two sizes smaller. I've been reading all the Facebook posts and blogs about life altering events that have made people who they are today, and it only seems fitting that I chime in with my two cents and…Continue

Frozen turkeys have been haunting my dreams for the last few nights. We are rounding the corner to Thanksgiving, and this is our year. We are hosting. All I keep telling myself is “Don’t screw up the turkey.”
Recipes have been bookmarked, pinned, printed and scattered. I have grocery lists littered around the house. In the last two days, I have already made three grocery runs, elbowing through the aisles for that last can of green beans. Nothing says I’m Thankful like a mob…Continue

My summer reading has been defined by the works of Brene Brown. I plowed through her three titles: "I Thought It Was Just Me, But It Isn't", "The Gifts of Imperfection" as well as her latest, "Daring Greatly."
Active reader that I am, all three books are chock full of my handwritten notes at this point. Needless to say, I highly recommend all of…Continue

The busy holiday season is already upon us where lists are critical for moms to make it through with some sense of sanity left: gift lists, grocery lists, Christmas card lists... you name it, there's a list for it! But in this chaotic month, perhaps before you start making list after list, you should start with the most important list of all: your life's bucket…

I cannot be the only one...who, as a working mama, associates school holidays with a mad scramble to find someone to watch their child; making phone calls calling in favors, while dropping discreet reminders of something you did for that person in the recent past. Harboring hopes that the person you decide to ask will offer their assistance before you have to resort to begging and making future promises of your services when needed.…Continue

We have had three calls to our Family Support Line in the last month related to children refusing to go to school. It occurred to me that this might be a good topic to address in the blog. In the twenty years that I have been working with children and families, I have noticed that school avoidance seems to rise around the holidays. I believe there are a few reasons for the peak in school avoidance around this time of year. The first is that the semester is finishing up and the stress…Continue

This week is definitely the ‘be easy on myself’ week - it’s filled with lazy meals and little cheats because that’s what’s needed.
Breakfasts will be a choice of cereal, pancakes, bagels or fruit & yogurt - for fab breakfast ideas see our Family Breakfast Recipe Pages…

Our children look to us as their first roles models so it is our job as their parents to lead by example. To simply say “don’t do what I do” is not enough, you will have more influence in a positive way if you share how you budget for your family. This will not only teach them to be responsible it will boost their self –esteem and self confidence.…Continue

I'm new here and feel like I haven't figured Mom blogs out yet. I've figured out All Posts have the newest posts but what about the groups and forums? It seems they're not used as much (or am I overlooking something?) Where do you find you visit the most on this site? Thanks,Marcia
