Wordless Wednesday- 5 Years

My So-Called Mommy Life wedding

Today The Hubster and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary. Five years ago tonight, it was a freak Tornado just north of Toronto where we got married at The Manor, in Kettleby. It was our “destination” wedding just outside of the city. We had the most beautiful day and besides the insane rain just before [...]

Finding the right car seat with Diono

Diono Radian XT

I’ll never forget the moment that I put my little babies in their bucket for the first time on our way home from the hospital. The bucket was so light and I couldn’t imagine how my new tiny baby would ever fill out the whole thing. But it happens and it happens fast! The great [...]

I throw #LikeAGirl and I’m proud of it! #pgmom

baseball me

When I was 7 I wanted to play baseball. It didn’t matter to me who I played with. I just wanted to play. My dad eagerly signed me up for t-ball and I remember how excited I was to play. That first year my team won the t-ball championship! What a way to start off [...]

Why I won’t force my kids to kiss anyone

nokiss

I come from a kissy type of family. You know those families where you greet everyone with a “hello”, a hug and a kiss. Ya those. That’s my family. Then when you leave you do the entire routine over again. Go to each person, say goodbye, and give a hug and a kiss. I’m ok [...]

7 Steps to a do-it-yourself home detox and #giveaway

7 steps for do it yourself detox Seventh Generation

I never wear my shoes in the house. Ever. I think it’s gross. I grew up leaving our shoes at the door so for me it’s just habit. Now that I have my house, it’s a rule. NO shoes in the house. Please leave them at the door!  But did you know that about 70% [...]

World Breastfeeding Week

Not in a million years would I think that I would be writing a post on World Breastfeeding Week when my baby is over a year old. I thought our breastfeeding story would be long done. World Breastfeeding is taking place Aug 1-7, 2014. Their slogan and theme this year is Breastfeeding- A Winning Goal [...]

Do you listen to everything you say?

PPcarride

Some days I feel like I talk ALL.DAY. LONG. My mouth starts moving the minute the kids wake up and then it doesn’t stop until Princess Peach is fast asleep in bed. We talk about what we see, what we are doing, the pee and poo in the toilet, we read books, sing songs. The [...]

Pack Gravol for summer roadtrips!

Gravol summer road trip essential

I love summertime because we are out and about most of the summer. We split out time between spending time in the city and time in cottage country enjoying everything that Canadian summers have to offer! Pre-children road trips were much different from our post-children road trips! When we were young and free (haha) we [...]

This post isn’t wordless Little Dude turned ONE last Thursday, on July 17. I’ve taken monthly pictures and loved putting them together to see how he has changed each month! We didn’t have a party for Little Dude which I felt guilty about…..until we had just immediate family over for dinner on his actual birthday. [...]

Am Yisrael Chai – What Israel means to me

Israel Flag Am Yisrael Chai

I never write about politics because I’m just not a very political person. It’s funny because my entire family is quite political except me. I don’t really care about the different parties or their platforms or who walked across the line and then crossed back. That doesn’t really interest me. My family could sit for [...]
