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’ [...]

We’re having one of those rare weekends where I actually feel like we’ve gotten a lot accomplished around the house, I’ve managed to get some time to myself to see friends and go to yoga, and the kids seem mostly entertained. And the best part is, there’s still another day of it left. Hurrah for [...]

What a better time than the madness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, now seeping into Canada, to again discuss holiday shopping needs. How are you getting on? Do you have a list? Are you checking it twice? In a brief moment of clarity this week, I pulled a lined piece of paper out of [...]
So Charlie’s first year is done, and breastfeeding is done, and we’re transitioned to cow’s milk. He generally eats really well, from all of the food groups, and now it’s milk in bottles a few times a day, and water in sippy cups at meal times. It’s gone fairly well, except for a bit of [...]

If you haven’t taken your little ones to the movies before, the first time can be a little daunting. I don’t know about you, but two hours in a dark room with loud noises and bright bursts of light on a giant screen with not enough popcorn doesn’t quite seem so fun when your three-year [...]

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 [...]

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of chucking Cheerios on the baby’s high chair tray every morning. They were one of his very first solid foods. And 4 out of 5 pediatricians would recommend them for all babies just starting on solids and self-feeding. Original Cheerios are an important staple in our pantry. [...]
We’re approaching birthday season in this house. Everyone except me is born in late fall/early winter. Throw in Christmas and it’s the most wonderful (sing it with me) and expensive time of the year. So I am already anticipating our upcoming toy purchases for the kids. What would they like? What do I think they [...]
Summer is winding down ever so fast. I’m soon going to have to brush the dust off of the lunch bags. Well, there’s not that much dust. I did spend four weeks in July packing snacks and lunches for two kids out of three. If I left my kids to their own devices, they’d pack [...]
