There comes a time in every child’s life in this family when they are right into trains and planes and cars – basically anything with an engine. For at least one child (the husband), this fascination has never actually ended. And the littler boys have all had a Thomas the Tank Engine phase. We’re sticking […]
Do you have Registered Education Savings Plans - RESPs for short – set up for your kids? We do, and they are with the RBC, but I’ll be honest, when our budget got very tight this year, we temporarily stopped putting money away regularly. A few things had to give, and that was one of […]

Can’t deny it much longer. Only 9 weekdays of summer vacation left, and then I have to worry about school lunches and snacks again. It’s not *too* much extra work for me, since I have one child who packs his own lunch (note to self: train the other one soon) and it’s not like they […]
I have great, great ideas about taking antiques and giving them a fresh coat of paint, and a new lease on life. I have good taste and a great old house with lots of character…and three small destructive children, a constantly-shedding and aging dog, and a husband whose idea of ‘upcycling‘ is to take a […]
We are really lucky to live near High Park, which is really a park for the whole entire city of Toronto, young and old. It’s huge and amazing, and I’m so glad it’s there. But I actually prefer a different, smaller neighbourhood park, when a trip out the door needs to be a bit more […]
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’ […]

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 […]
