Throwback Thuraday: Should You Give Your Baby the Flu Shot?

Whether to vaccinate your children has become a controversial topic these days.  In my area, children cannot start school unless they are vaccinated and for the record, as a Health and Safety professional, I am pro vaccination.  Yet, when it comes to the flu shot, I have been undecided for years. Last week we were … Continue reading

My ever increasing grocery bill

That moment when you get to the cash register and realize you have spent $450 dollars for what you hope is two weeks worth of groceries.

Is it time for a minivan?

We are currently saving to buy a car, and deciding what car to buy is proving increasingly difficult. I know, I know you think I don’t want a minivan because they are not cool. No one wants to admit they are no longer a sexy young thing but a slightly used soccer mom. But that’s … Continue reading

Well, after about a week and a half I have to say that I couldn’t be more pleased with the chart (and my son!). We sat down together and chose his goals for the week. For the first week we didn’t fill them all because I didn’t want to make it too hard on him. … Continue reading

Family Literacy Day

I am so excited because this Saturday we are going to a party at our local library to celebrate Family Literacy Day. I think that everyone knows the importance of reading with your kids but I think that we forget to celebrate or be thankful when we have the opportunities to sit down with our littles … Continue reading

The Responsibility Chart

A few days ago I wrote about introducing (or reintroducing) my four year old to chores. I looked at various chore charts and things until I settled on this one. It is a nice wood frame with magnets. The price was reasonable at only $20 (Canadian) but the best part is that it isn’t just … Continue reading
