All my children have their name on their bedroom door. I find this a great way for them to know it is their special room where they sleep, play, read and chill out in. I have also found it to be a great tool in teaching them how to spell their own name.
A few years ago I purchased one of my boys name for his door and it cost me around $40!!!!…Continue

I knew that it would eventually happen. I know kids get older and that things get weird. . . . . .
at least for me. I was hoping that it wouldn't happen this soon!
What am I talking about?
One of my favorite family traditions is languishing. Dying, I tell you. Ever since my son was a baby we've dressed for Halloween as a family. Sometimes we go with a…Continue

Camping isn't on our list of trips for this year (maybe next year), but I still wanted to introduce my kids to one of the great camping experiences ever... S'mores! There's just something about the ooey, gooey, stickiness of the marshmallows and the sweet, smooth chocolate that is enough for me to deem camping as one adventure that everyone must try... at least once in their life. (Of course, there is the beauty of nature and all the creatures you may not normally see, but I'm speaking…Continue

Kids, modern art, imagination and Halloween go so nicely together, don’t you think?
We’ve been making some terrifying Halloween sculptures and our favourite well the giant spider obviously! Fancy making one of your own?

I walked into a store today to pick up a picture frame and other nicknacks. After gathering my items and getting in line, an older lady looked down at my children (who were bouncing around like a couple of sugar-high human jumping jacks) and said, “I have two just like that. Well, my son has two just like that. I really think they should just have school all year round. Being out for the summer…Continue

One day after school, I took the munchkins out for a treat. It was a sunny day and, as you may know, sunlight can do wonders for a person's mood! We stopped for a snack of cheese fries and ice cream- not the healthiest snack, but it's nice to splurge occasionally ;) After we'd filled our bellies and satisfied our cravings, we walked over to a Goodwill store nearby. The plan was to find me a good book…Continue

My husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage! Crazy, right?!
Well, we wanted to do something special to celebrate but our youngest was only four months and I’d be breastfeeding; so we decided spend our 10 year anniversary trip... with the kids. Not overly romantic, I know, but sometimes you gotta make the best of the situation. An all inclusive Jamaican resort was our destination of choice. We’d never been there before so it would still be special and it was all inclusive, which…Continue

Do you remember what you used to think being a mom was like? I don’t mean just before having kids, I mean way back when you WERE a kid? Now, take a look at yourself as a parent. Does it match up to what you thought it would be? Are you anything like the mom you pictured when you were younger? I…Continue
The other day as I was cleaning out my basement I found my old typewriter, and it reminded me of a story one of the antique dealers told me. It was about a teacher that came in looking to purchase a typewriter, because she was reading a story to her class and came across a part that described a…Continue
