Lost your mittens? Now you shall have no pie!

Back in the fall I thought I was smart. I thought I planned ahead. But of course, I was wrong. I purchased Sawyer four pairs of mitts. Two knitted for fall and two waterproof for winter. Well, he lost his last pair in Montreal this past weekend and despite the plethora of mittens the rest … Continue reading

How To Tell If A Toy Is For Boys Or Girls

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely thinking about what to get people to for Christmas. If you are shopping for kids and need some help here is something you might find useful.

How did we become that Wal-Mart Family??

Everyone knows about “the people” you see at Wal-Mart. By “people” I mean those stereotypes perpatrated by Twitter and Facebook of moms in mumus with six kids she can’t control or the dad wearing a “wifebeater” (tight white tank) that isn’t so clean and does nothing to hide his beer gut. Well last night I … Continue reading

Why The “Terrible Twos” Weren’t Terrible At All

As my son is about to turn four and the girl’s are starting to creep towards two, I am caught between the memory of what was two and what is to be two (times 2).  Here was my take on it the first time around. Everyone hears about it. Even before I had kids, I … Continue reading

Top 10: What “Me Time” Is When You Have Three Kids

Oh how I remember the days when “me” time meant getting $1400 hair extensions, a new outfit, and going out partying all night or spending a day at the art gallery or museum lost in the exhibits or just wandering through the mall having fun. While I don’t necessarily miss those days, things have definitely … Continue reading

Sawyer Gets A New Bed

It felt oddly appropriate since Canada beat Sweden for the gold medal in Olympic hockey that we would go off to IKEA to buy Sawyer a new bed.  His old crib turned into a bed and that’s what he had been using, but being in the 95 percentile for height and weight for a three-year … Continue reading

Useless Baby Products

Come on, we have all done it. Seen something in the store or online and thought “Wow! What a great idea”. If we were lucky we had second thoughts, but that usually happens on your second child. Expecting your first you believe you will need all the companies tell you you just can’t live without. … Continue reading

So-Called Romantic Gifts Once You Are A Mom

Valentine’s Day is in two weeks and for some that means buying/receiving tokens of love.  So I have decided to reblog this post I wrote last year about the “romantic” gifts you get from hubs after you become a mom. Does this sound familiar? When you were young and single gifts were always about you. … Continue reading

Top 10: Myths and Facts About Parenting

I am feeling a little precocious today so I wrote a (somewhat sarcastic) top 10 about some common parenting myths (with a few added bonus ones). Please feel free to add your own in the comments section since there really are so many to talk about. 1. We need to have a lot of money … Continue reading

Decluttering You Life: What’s In Your Purse?

Growing up I always used to tell my mom “your purse is not your briefcase” (something I heard on Oprah). She was always toting around a big heavy bag, that seemed to me to be full of stuff she didn’t need. There have been reports of how carrying a heavy purse can give women back … Continue reading
