Happy 5th birthday Princess Peach!

My So-Called Mommy Life

Dear Princess Peach, I can’t believe that you are 5 years old today! A whole hand of fingers. It feels like you were just a baby yet at other times it feels like you’ve been a big kid for so long. You are quite the spirited girl who loves to talk. Your talking could be [...]

Parenting in the summer versus the school year

My So-Called Mommy Life

I don’t know about you but my parenting has been off its game since the summer started. Or, maybe I’m saying it’s been on its game.

I think there are two types of people- those who love a massage and those who don’t. I don’t know about you, but I’m part of the group who loves getting a massage. I always have a lot of knots or sore areas, and it is always such a relaxing treat. Recently, I had the [...]

True North Sports Camp Baseball Clinic Review

True North Sports Camp Baseball Clinic

Dear Mr. Ice Cream Truck, Hooray! Spring time is here. That means that you can take out your ice cream truck that has collected dust all winter. You can drive around the city visiting schools, parks, and public grounds. Mr. Ice Cream Truck, I think you are great, but I have a little bone to [...]

Fit for a dancer at ivivva

Ivivva review

Princess Peach has danced since as soon as she could. When she was two she would dance to the Elmo Slide all the time. Last year, at 3 she started ballet class at a pretty serious ballet school. She loved it but it wasn’t until this year that she has really  taken to dance. She dances for [...]
