Finding “normal” during cancer #pgmom

My family loves ice cream, so after treatments when I would start feeling better we would celebrate with a trip to get ice cream.

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own. When I was diagnosed with cancer last year, I was so worried about my kids. They were my number one priority. I worried [...]

I survived a 10 day cleanse

My favourite breakfast- a chocolate peanut butter and banana smoothie bowl

Last Monday, I took a huge leap and decided to part-take in a 10 day cleanse. I know what you are thinking. A combination of “she’s crazy” and “I could never do that!” These thoughts went through my head too! But it’s not the type of cleanse you are probably thinking I took part in. [...]

Four words to say to someone going through cancer treatments

fourwords

A little while ago, I wrote this post of what not to say to a woman with breast cancer. I probably could add a few things to that list as could every woman with breast cancer. Scratch that, probably every person who has had cancer could come up with a pretty funny list of comments [...]

Advice for dads-to-be and new dads #PampersBabyPanel

Princess Peach Pampers diapers

This coming Sunday marks my husbands fifth Father’s Day. It’s crazy to think that we have been parents for that long! I don’t often interview people for my blog, let alone my husband, but now that he’s a seasoned father, I thought it would be fun for him to share some of what he has [...]

First Descents is a life changing experience

Prior to my cancer diagnosis, I considered myself a pretty happy person. I always saw the good in people or situations,  and tried to laugh as much as possible. But, I did a few things that didn’t make me a happy person. I would stress and over-react about little things. Like a lot. Blow them [...]

Lies I tell my kids

My So-Called Mommy Life

I love my kids. They are my sun, moon and stars. I love them more than the whole wide world and back again. But, I lie to them. Pretty much all the time. Maybe its the nice weather and we are out all the time, or maybe it’s just that the are getting older and [...]

Be curious with Ariel #DreamBigPrincess

Disney Princess Royal Shimmer Ariel doll

If you ask Princess Peach who her favourite Disney Princess is, she always responds that she has two favourites- Cinderella and Ariel. She will tell you that she loves Ariel because she has red hair and blue eyes just like her. It has been this way for as long as I can remember. Princess Peach [...]

Dear Mr. Ice Cream Truck, Hooray! Spring time is here. That means that you can take out your ice cream truck that has collected dust all winter. You can drive around the city visiting schools, parks, and public grounds. Mr. Ice Cream Truck, I think you are great, but I have a little bone to [...]

Fit for a dancer at ivivva

Ivivva review

Princess Peach has danced since as soon as she could. When she was two she would dance to the Elmo Slide all the time. Last year, at 3 she started ballet class at a pretty serious ballet school. She loved it but it wasn’t until this year that she has really  taken to dance. She dances for [...]

Purifying the air in your house with Dyson Pure Cool™ Link

Dyson Pure Cool™ Link

I always knew I was allergic to dust, mold, and mildew but it wasn’t until I went to over night camp at 11 that we realized how bad it really was. Like really bad. My asthma flared up and my breathing was at times very bad difficult. I was in-and-out of the infirmary many times [...]
