What if his firsts are my lasts?

Five years ago today, I excitedly posted to Facebook that I was expecting a baby. I was thrilled. I couldn’t wait to see who this little person was who was growing inside me. I had hoped for a girl but just wanted a happy baby at the end of the day. I got my wish [...]

Passing on holiday traditions #PeaceOnEarth #PampersBabyPanel #giveaway

Me celebrating my first Chanukah is 1981

When I was a kid, I always looked forward to celebrating Chanukah. Every year we would gather at my Nana’s and she would have round laundry baskets filled with toys for me, my sister and my cousins. In the crazy days of Cabbage Patch dolls, my Nana even braved the crowds at Woolworths during a [...]

Amazing deals at the Pop Toy and Gift Sale

2015 - Pop Toy & Gift Sale Poster

Holiday shopping is in full swing! The malls, and stores are packed with enthusiastic (or not) shoppers trying to cross off all the people on their shopping lists. I’m all about shopping early and getting a good deal. Often with the expense of buying for so many people, the price of the holiday season can [...]

Dear Little Dude, Happy birthday, baby boy! Today you are 2! What a year this has been for you. You went from being a shy baby who never left my side to being a self-confident, funny little boy. It has been an absolute pleasure watching you grow this past year. You have had some huge [...]

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 [...]

Join in the fun at the #PampersFirsts Twitter Party!

PampersTwitter

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 [...]

Princess Peach happy in her Evenflo SecureKid DLX Harnessed Booster

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 [...]
