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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

My little bully

My So-Called Mommy Life

About 2 months ago Little Dude bit me. Then he bit The Hubster. Then he pulled Princess Peach’s hair.  Houston we have a problem! My little sweet boy has turned into a bully.  At first it was just at home and usually out of frustration. He doesn’t have very many words so communicating with us [...]

Farewell 2014 #Kindermom

Kinder Surprise My So-Called Mommy Life

I can’t believe that in a few short hours 2014 is over. A year of amazing memories and firsts in the books for our family. Little Dude especially hit an amazing number of milestones in 2014. He learned to sit, crawl, walk, started talking, started daycare, had his first swim class, his first birthday, slept [...]
