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 [...]

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 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’m not really into imaginary things. I’m pretty practical. I don’t really mind if the kids stop believing in Santa or the Tooth Fairy or the Easter Bunny. I’m barely putting up the pretense. We don’t do God around here. I’m not the person who is going to put that Elf on the Shelf. Am [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]

I’m not putting down my phone while the kids are in the playground. I have 3 BBM conversations going and one is with the husband about what’s for dinner and what’s going on this weekend. I’m laughing at something or someone with my friends in another, because we are evil. The best kind of evil. [...]
