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 [...]

I have my weekly ritual. I spend every Friday night, notwithstanding Friday nights when I actually have *real* plans, slowly sauntering up the aisles at my local No Frills. Reading labels, finding deals, checking coupons, etc. I do this alone. No children. It’s a peaceful time, and I’m usually in my happy place. I am [...]
Sunscreen stresses me out, man. If I apply it to my children and protect them from the sun’s harmful rays, then I might be allowing toxic substances to sink into their skin. If I don’t apply it, and rely on hats/clothes/shade, we all risk skin damage and eventually cancer. I tread a line between both [...]
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 [...]

When it comes to summer shoes, I usually stick with one pair of sandals and basically wear them into the ground. At the same time, however, I’m trying to pretend I’m a grown up and actually push myself out of my comfort zone, once in a while, and wear some high heels. Particularly on nights [...]
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 [...]
At the beginning of May, the weather was sunny but cool. I remember this one particular afternoon. A cold wind blew across the playground and right into the baby’s face. Ugh. I thought, forget this, we’re going home to play inside (I’m not going to talk about how much whining and foot stomping took place [...]

Last week, we took a quick trip to Orlando, Florida. Mark had a conference to attend, so we added a couple of extra days and packed up most of our earthly belongings (or so it seemed) and treated the kids to a bit of an adventure. One of the handiest things we brought? Our new [...]

A few weeks ago, I finally managed to assemble all the cloth diapers I had collected (from earlier use with Oliver, or bought or acquired second-hand more recently) and washed and organized them. It was time to get my act together and reduce the amount of disposable diapers going in the garbage bin! I also [...]
