429 days of memories

myteam

Two years ago, almost to the day I wrote this post. It’s amazing how much life can change in a mere two years but I can say that I’m still NOT a good house wife. That has not changed. Sadly, I think housewifery is NOT in my cards although being a great mom is. Ok, [...]

Planning a birthday Party at Kidville Canada

Birthday Party Set up at Kidville

  I love birthdays. I have since as long as I can remember. Growing up we just didn’t celebrate once, or twice. Birthdays usually lasted a week or longer with a variety of celebrations. Now that I have a family of my own, I guess you can say that it’s the same. We celebrate many [...]

In late June, I took the plunge (pun, intended)and toilet trained Princess Peach.

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 [...]
