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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]

So the kids and the husband came back and it was lovely and emotional and then I immediately got annoyed. The house was overturned in minutes, as suitcases exploded on impact with the floor. Shrapnel everywhere. I hate you. The kids suddenly needed things all the time, and besides that, were still on England time. [...]
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 [...]

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. [...]
The house is steamy in this May heat wave but everyone is asleep so I’m content. It’s bad that I look forward to all three of them being asleep every night, right? But as it happens, as each of the three go down, and the last one’s finally quiet - it’s like I can finally [...]
“How was your Mother’s Day?” she asked, at kindergarten drop off. “I…uh…hmm…” I stammered in response. Christ. So Sunday morning we had to get back to Toronto from Ottawa and quickly as Mark had to get to work, and we had to get the dog from the kennel. He took the boys for a swim [...]
