A love letter to feet

When my son was three, he liked to play a game where he dressed up like either mommy or daddy. This mostly involved wearing our shoes.

My BEST TIPS for Back to School Shopping

I just had the BEST, BEST day with my 6 year old.  She’s about to head into Grade 1, and we hit the mall for some back to school shopping together.

Do you look forward to back to school shopping or is it something you dread as the school year approaches?

I love shopping for anything or anyone, but I’ve learned that shopping with 3 kids can be a challenge… each waiting for the other to try on different items.  Eventually the boredom sets in and it’s hairy-scary…

The Grocery Store: Gathering Place for Jackholes

grocery-cart



Going to the grocery store is definitely not my idea of a good time.  Sure it's nice when your kids are FINALLY old enough that you don't have to drag them with you every time you need to run out for a loaf of bread.  A few minutes of alone time can do wonders for the sanity.  However, a quick trip to the store can very…

The First Bah Humbug

I cannot be the only one...who hates to sound like a Scrooge, but sometimes when a thought gets in this old head of mine I have to go with it, no matter how curmudgeonly it is, such as my displeasure with Sonny Boy's school holiday boutique. I am sure you are wondering how could something as genial, warm, and inviting as a kid friendly holiday shopping event be annoying, we'll let me explain.…

Thrift Shop

I’m gonna pop some tags, only got twenty dollars in my pocket…(from the song, Thrift Shop by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis).

When my two step-kids were still living at home, they were pretty easy when it came to clothes shopping.  Sure, they had certain likes and dislikes like everyone else, but they never really made a big deal about sporting the latest and greatest name brands on their backs.
