I love avocados, their soft and cool green flesh. Their ability to take on other flavours. The way they mash with a fork. I didn’t even eat an avocado until I was in my twenties. I consider this a great tragedy. All that guacamole I said no to, because I didn’t know what it was, [...]
I am participating in the Muskoka Woods Blogger Campaign by Mom Central Canada. I received compensation as a thank you for participating and for sharing my honest opinion. The opinions on this blog are my own. I had a craving for s’mores the other day. I think the last time I’d had them was actually [...]
(psst, click the banner to get a coupon to try Natrel Baboo for free) Charlie’s about to turn 18 months old and I’m running out of baby milestones. Okay, he’s not talking very much yet, relying instead on very expressive grunting and pointing and the occasional ’up’ and ‘yeah’, but I haven’t heard him say ‘mummy’ [...]

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 [...]

Spring of self care #2 – Yoplait® Source® Greek yogurt & yoga (plus $100 Lululemon gift card giveaway!) (CLOSED)
I bought myself a ten-class yoga pass a few months ago. And I’m very thankful it had a long expiry date on it because between the husband’s business trips and various other commitments and me just not feeling like leaving the house because it’s too cold or miserable (read: too lazy), I’ve only been three or [...]
I had a day off today. And I completely indulged myself. Here’s how it went down: Was awoken by weekday alarm. Turned it off and rolled over. Walked the kids to school. In pouring rain. Like a hero. Went to local bakery. Bought a giant blueberry danish and a sourdough baguette. Did laundry, including delicates, [...]
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’m going to be that person who references a book without having read it. That’s a terrible kind of person to be. And yet here I am, being it. But I keep hearing about Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg, and I’ve read synopses and reviews and watched her on YouTube, [...]
I was looking back at my old iPhoto files on the Mac, and I came across this gem. This would have been taken in November 2007, a time I can barely remember because I was SO very OVERwhelmed. I had a newborn and, oh yeah, another baby. Not even 2 years old yet. Talk about [...]
