Full disclosure: Math was not my favorite subject in school. But even though I didn't care for math, I still made really great grades in it.
To me, math was too finite. If I was writing an essay, I could write my way out of a corner. With math, you were either right or wrong with your answers. And my…
Over the last several weeks, I have noticed that my youngest son doesn’t like to go to bed at night. I am not sure if he is scared of the dark, terrified to be alone, dealing with separation anxiety, if he is just going through a phase where he wants to be independent, or he is afraid of “monsters” hiding under his bed or in his closet. Every night we go through the same exact routine, my youngest son will throw a fit and he will tell me that he doesn’t want to go to bed. Each night we…Continue

My son is afraid of heights, and until very recently, I thought he developed this fear from a fall at some point. Granted, my husband and I couldn't think of any time when our son had a serious fall (the short fall out of his bed those few times notwithstanding).
It turns out that it's probably my fault. I have a specific fear of heights. It's weird because I'm not afraid…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who has noticed how much better the “mall” Santa's are looking lately, gone are the days of red polyester suits, cotton masquerading as fur, and those weird shiny angel hair beards, the current Santa’s are bringing it. Although, even with Santa's modern make-over, the kids standing in the crowded lines, between the red crushed velvet ropes, have the same terror in their eyes I remember from my time as a kid waiting to step up to Santa's…Continue

You know how you had that one toy in your bedroom as a kid that kinda creeped you out once your parents turned out the lights and tucked you in for the night? Mine was a clown who I swear glared at me from his perch high up on my bookcase. (Special thanks to Poltergeist for that little childhood fear.) But now that I'm an adult (allegedly anyway), my daughter has…Continue
I’m walking the runway March 14 to help introduce VAWK’s new sister line VAWKIN (designed by Project Runway Canada season two winner Sunny Fong)!
How amazingly AWESOME is that?!
Seriously. I am not a model. I’m a 30-something mom and entrepreneur. I clean snotty noses and poopy diapers. I read books about talking squirrels and grumpy birds. I drive a family car with a car seat. I sit behind a computer all day. I write. I drink coffee. I eat cake…You WON’T normally find me…Continue

Last week I called the instructor at the local Ropes Course. We were set to attend with our homeschool group in a few days, and I realized that although it may be interesting to watch the older kids climb, zip and whirl, it'd be more fun if my two oldest could participate fully.
The answer I got: The harnesses can be fit on very young children. It's more about their personal will and interest.
So, we woke early a few days later, tossed our picnic in the car, and drove as…
