The day started off innocently. There’s a mess of dishes and many wine bottles after I hosted book club the night before, but I cleared most of it out of the way while I assembled my breakfast. There’s Beavers that night, after we both go to work. There’s a kid with red eyes, but it doesn’t look [...]
A few things – and some of them are more fun than the others. Last week the kids and I participated in a new game on the Teletoon Retro website called Toon Feud. You can log in via your Facebook account and answer questions about cartoons from the good old days, or in our case, about a [...]

It feels a bit like I’m emerging from a cocoon. Slowly. The last few weeks have been cold and miserable as winter kept lingering and there’s just been way too much solo parenting so I’ve basically been housebound except for going to work. All of these things make me cranky. I haven’t been taking care [...]
I had one of those days where I really felt like I was having it all. Like I am super woman, hear me roar. Except with less roaring and more juggling, and spinning plates. I was awoken early by a feverish baby, but he was a good alarm clock, since it was Parks and Rec [...]
“You know that people are going to be wondering what happened when they see you when we go out, right? You could tell people that you got attacked by ninjas,” I helpfully suggested. “Or a giant turtle got you,” laughed Callum. “Yeah. But old ladies don’t like it when you tell stories,” replied Oliver. Hmm, I [...]
We were at an event last week, me and the two older kids, at which a major highlight was a giant pile of dirt and a bunch of shovels. They were told they needed to use the shovels to make a proper hill for monster trucks to attempt to drive over. Basically, my kids were [...]
I went to yoga for the first time in…uh…way too long tonight. No more excuses! Not that I was giving any to anyone. I bought a 10 class pass to a local place in the summer and it wasn’t anywhere near expiring, but it was time to go. Maybe the fact that I’m facing a [...]
Actually, it’s not about the pie. We’ve come out the other side of a pretty stressful few weeks and I can say that I mostly survived. Everything happened that was supposed to, the major pieces have fallen into place. I am back at work. I have reliable childcare. We celebrated two birthdays. I looked after [...]
Yep. I’m a jerk. Oh and a bully, and I think I’m a better mother than you. And I proved I’m a jerk because I had the audacity to use a CURSE word in my comment on that post. I CURSED. Are you blushing? I’m a jerk. Apparently. I’m a jerk. If by jerk you [...]

I’m mired in a lot of uncertainty right now. For someone who likes to be organized and plans ahead, this isn’t the greatest place to be in. It’s not anything earth-shattering. It’s just a bunch of my maternity leave has ended and now I’m on vacation and I don’t know when the nanny is starting [...]
