Babylicious: An A+ dining experience

#babylicious Toronto

Two weeks ago, I helped spread the news about the Babylicious dining event in Toronto. PC Organics has teamed up with many popular restaurants in Toronto and are offering a prix fixe menu for the adults, while the kids get their own 3-course meal thanks to PC Organics. Last night Little Dude and I were [...]

99 things I want to teach my kids about life

99

I started writing this post when I got diagnosed with cancer last year. I was so worried about not being around to teach my kids all the things I want to teach them about life.  Some are silly, some are stupid and some may just sound like common sense. I kept imagining talking to my [...]

Five years ago today, I excitedly posted to Facebook that I was expecting a baby. I was thrilled. I couldn’t wait to see who this little person was who was growing inside me. I had hoped for a girl but just wanted a happy baby at the end of the day. I got my wish [...]

My kids say the darndest things about cancer

IMG_1978

We’ve been very open (in an age appropriate way) with both Princess Peach and Little Dude about my cancer diagnosis and all of my treatments. They know that I had a boo-boo in my boob, that I had medicine (chemotherapy) to make mommy better and surgery to take the boo-boo out.  Although they don’t know [...]

Dear Little Dude, Happy birthday, baby boy! Today you are 2! What a year this has been for you. You went from being a shy baby who never left my side to being a self-confident, funny little boy. It has been an absolute pleasure watching you grow this past year. You have had some huge [...]

Little Dude’s Favourite Books

My So-Called Mommy Life Little Dude reading

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 [...]

When I met The Hubster just over 10 years ago (wow!), we joke that he wooed me over with his family’s cottage. The cottage is part of a cottage community and it’s very unique as they run their own summer camp. As the cottage is not too far from Toronto when we met we pretty [...]

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 [...]

Here are some of my favourite pictures of me and the kids. Disclosure: I have NO affiliation with the Toronto Christmas Market. I just think it’s a fabulous [...]

As parents there are many things that we need. More hands, More time. More help. More patience. More coffee. More money. More sleep. MORE SLEEP. I need more sleep. One night (or more) of uninterrupted sleep. Where my head hits the pillow and no one bothers me until the next morning. I think this is [...]
