In the summertime, the first KinderMom and KinderDad event was held on Princess Peach’s third birthday. I was unsure of attending but then decided it would a fun morning birthday event that Princess Peach would be sure to enjoy! Afterall, she did get to eat a few Kinder Surprise Eggs first thing in the morning! [...]

When trying to scramble to make my lunch the other day, The Hubster laughed and said “what are we going to do next year when Princess Peach needs a lunch too?” The honest answer was “I have no clue!”. She’s in daycare now where two healthy snacks and a healthy lunch is provided. September is [...]

#ripyourclotheson giveaway My So-Called Mommy Life

This winter has been brutal. I have seen too many days that fall anywhere between -20 to -40. Those numbers  should never be on a thermostat, ever. I don’t live in the Arctic but I sure feel like I have been this winter! The layers upon layers and being so bundled is really getting to [...]

I tend not to write too much about animals because at this point in my adult-life I don’t have one. I grew up with a dog and after she passed away my mom wasn’t ready for new dog until  my sister, Auntie Beige moved away to University. The week she left she was replaced by [...]

It could happen to any of us

If you don’t live in the GTA you probably aren’t aware of the horrific events that happened yesterday. A 3-year old boy named Elijah Marsh, dressed only in a t-shirt, pull-up and boots, walked out of his grandmother’s apartment around 4:00 am, and into the frigid cold. About -28 cold. After realizing at 7:30am he [...]

Little Dude’s Favourite Books

My So-Called Mommy Life Little Dude reading

For a while I was posting some of Princess Peach’s favourite toys/items that she enjoys playing with. I realized that in the almost 19 months that Little Dude has been here I haven’t shared any of his picks. The funny thing is that he doesn’t have very many favourite things that aren’t his sisters. Whatever [...]

There have been so many memorable and special “firsts” since becoming a mom 3.5 years ago. Some of my favourites were the first time my kids rolled over, their first time trying solids, the first word they signed back to us (we did baby sign language) and of course their first steps. Little Dude’s “firsts” [...]

First time at the cottage and #PampersFirsts giveaway

cottagebaby

When I met The Hubster just over 10 years ago (wow!), we joke that he wooed me over with his family’s cottage. The cottage is part of a cottage community and it’s very unique as they run their own summer camp. As the cottage is not too far from Toronto when we met we pretty [...]

Wordless Wednesday- 93 years, 3 years and 1 year

IMG_1396

Most Sundays, my kids and I along with my parents and occasionally The Hubster and Auntie Beige go to visit my grandparents. I’ve said this many, many times before that my kids are SO incredibly lucky to have 3 living great-grandparents in their lives. We surprised my Nana on Sunday and had some snacks with [...]

Since having kids, I have become somewhat of a nervous driver. I’m not nervous about my driving. I’m actually quite the opposite and am very confident in my driving skills. It’s that I’m nervous about other drivers on the road. Maybe they aren’t the most skilled and confident driver or maybe they are a newer [...]
