Have you heard about the Toronto Mini Maker Faire, happening Saturday and Sunday September 21 and 22 2013 at Wychwood Barns? When I first heard about it, I knew it would be absolutely perfect for my curious, nerdy, block-building and electronics-dismantling children. I’m really excited to take them! Maker Faires celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science […]
I told this story to someone at work today, and after laughing loudly, she told me I needed to write this stuff down. I was then reminded I had a blog! Perfect. Sorry. It’s been a busy summer. We walked to the beach after dinner, because I was tired of fighting with them about organizing […]
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’m very lucky. I got to test drive another tablet. Do you have a tablet at home? I realize that I was using my very old iPod touch as a tablet, as I always preferred to read or to play games on it, compared to my Blackberry phone, which I prefer over anything to type […]
Last month I talked about the new Joy of Learning Playtime Guide on the Fisher-Price website. As I wrote that post, we received a huge delivery with some great toys inside. An end of summer treat for the kids that has made them very happy – and has allowed me to see learning through play […]

The summer is just whizzing by. Those four weeks of day camp for Oliver and Callum are almost up. The weekends have been filled with swimming pool and park visits, and riding bikes all around. I’m going to blink and then they’ll all be off to Camp England without me. I’m going to Camp NYC […]

“So what’d your husband and the kids get you for your birthday?” “A sausage stuffer.” “A…what? Sorry? How…um…thoughtful?” Get your mind out of the gutters, people. I wasn’t expecting a gift, so this was a nice surprise. The attachment set for my KitchenAid mixer was on my ‘nice to have one day’ list, so I […]
So the nursing bras are in the garbage bin. Most of them were almost 7 years old – which sounds ancient, but overall they were only really worn for about a year and a half. Two of them were new, only a year old, and even had underwire – woooo. But they still didn’t support […]
I used to think babies were scary. That newborns were the most challenging. That I could easily wish away about the first 6 months of their lives, just to get to the part where they were ‘people’ unto themselves. Oh ha ha ha ha ha, old me. You were so naïve. Babies are DA BOMB. […]
I’ve been thinking recently that I can’t really be called a mom blogger or a mommy blogger (*cringe*) because I don’t usually write blog posts dispensing advice about child rearing. Besides the fact that I don’t actually know what the hell I am doing most of the time, I believe there are about 234,567 right […]
