We don’t get too worked up about a little mess at our house
My friend Emily over at The Motherhood recently asked me to co-host an online discussion about how to “unspoil” your child. Due to a scheduling conflict, I couldn’t participate, which was disappointing for me. I find spoiling kids to be a particularly annoying habit of many parents.
Tis the season...the season for heavier and carbier foods. As soon as the weather gets cooler and I add my extra blanket to the bed and dig out my favorite fuzzy pink slippers, my body starts to signal that winter is near by berating with cravings for all things carbs! Seriously, like bears, I swear it's some biological need…

I never held any illusions about having 4 kidlets. I didn’t expect it to be easy, I knew it wouldn’t be cheap, & I anticipated the years of being tied down to breastfeeding, diapers, & crying. I entered in to this with a willing spirit & a joyful heart. As they headed off to…Continue

So I write this as my two little ones are settled downstairs watching Blues Clues and playing – well when my oldest isn’t yanking her toys from her little sister’s hands! Let’s be honest, if they weren’t watching TV, I wouldn’t be up here in the loft getting some work done.
This from a mom who swore that her kids…Continue

This weekend I had the tedious chore of reconciling our latest credit card bill. Usually it’s pretty easy but this month I noticed a charge from an Internet company that wasn’t familiar. In fact, the charge description only provided an 866 phone number. So being due diligent, I called the number. Low and behold, it was a “store front” billing company and it was unable to let me know the…Continue

Not sure what else to call this post other than that...I have things to say, but they are all over the place!
I'm now on my second week of regular exercise. Don't get me wrong I've always exercised, but I just haven't been consistent for the last few years. So anyway, this is my second week of building up my running. Last week I was walking 4 minutes and running for 2 minutes - do that 5x's. This week is walk 3 minutes and run 3 minutes - 5x's. I started that Tuesday and can now…

Last week I was flying to L.A. for a speaking engagement. As I boarded the plane, I reminded myself how peaceful the flight would be. Flying solo is like a forced holiday. Flying with my gang is a big job and one that I spend a fair amount of time dreading. However, after the experience I had on that particular flight, I realized that maybe travelling with my kids is not so bad after all.
Two rows ahead of me, in the bulk head seats, was a very elderly man who walked with a cane. He…Continue

Yes, its come to that...a full fledged addiction to facebook. I've been finding more and more that I'd rather go online and check out my friend's status updates rather than catch up on the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Goodness Knows Where.....I watch all of them -- the series may be my second addiction.
But really, I'd rather go on facebook…Continue

Hockey is a great North American tradition and our family heads off to the arena on a regular basis to watch our kids try to get a puck in a net. Daddy-o even builds an ice rink in the backyard every winter so they can play among themselves and with neighbourhood kids. My 10-year-old son was keen to play through summer and a few weeks ago his team was in the championship game. It was a summer house league 3-on-3 team so hardly a highly competitive…Continue
