The 5 types of daycare parents

Toilet training essentials with Kandoo

toilet training toddler essentials what to have

In late June, I took the plunge (pun, intended)and toilet trained Princess Peach. I prepped Princess Peach long and hard about the “diaper fairies” coming to our house one night and taking away her diapers. They would then deliver them to babies who needed them. She never clued in that the other “baby” was her [...]

Parenting 101 #giveaway

Church and Dwight Parenting 101 giveaway Canada

I’ll never forget the four page handout my pre-natal class gave us expectant parents. FOUR PAGES! It was insane. It totally freaked me out! The handout was separated into different categories but right away I felt so overwhelmed what I was being told I needed to have for my baby. I even added to the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

365 days of love

Dear Little Dude, Happy first birthday baby boy. It’s so crazy to think that 1 year ago today I had the most relaxed and amazing birthing experience and that you made your amazing arrival into the world. For 365 days you have been my “accessory” or as I often referred to you as my appendage. [...]
