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 [...]

My So-Called Mommy Life

  Last year when I turned 34, I had no clue if I would see today. What a difference a year makes. Just 3 weeks earlier, I had been diagnosed with breast cancer. What a difference a year makes. 3 days before my birthday, I had my first round of chemotherapy. What a difference a [...]

Dear Princess Peach, I can’t believe that today we are celebrating you turning 4. It feels like you have been part of my life forever, yet four years is a short amount of time. I remember the first time I laid eyes on you in the OR and now I’m looking at my beautiful four-year [...]

Kidville Canada birthday party My So-Called Mommy Life

A few weeks ago I shared that we were going to have Princess Peach’s third birthday at Kidville. Read all about how easy it is to plan a party at Kidville here. The day of the party wasn’t stressful at all which felt SO strange. The Hubster and I weren’t running around the city getting [...]
