Princess Peach started ballet class last week! She was so excited and had the best time. This is her ballet get-up for the year! I can’t believe my three-year-old is already rocking the ballet bun!  

Wordless Wednesday- First Day!

My So-Called Mommy Life

Even though my kids started daycare last week, I realize I didn’t share a picture of their first day. I adore this picture. Little Dude looks so grown up here!

To her I’m stunning

It was the perfect morning for so many reasons. Yesterday morning my kids and I  went to a local outdoor space that has trails to walk on, a Sunday morning market, a nature area for them to play in where they can water the plants and learn about what lives around us. When we arrived [...]

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 [...]

Toilet training essentials with Kandoo

She never clued in that the other “baby” was her [...]

Princess Peach’s Pick- The Hive #StreamTeam

The Hive Netflix #StreamTeam

It’s been a long time since I’ve featured one of Princess Peach’s Picks. This month we’ve seen a little more rain than I anyone would like. When we are stuck indoors on a rainy day I love curling up with Princess Peach and watching Netflix. This month I’ve introduced her a new-to-her animated show on [...]

Why I won’t force my kids to kiss anyone

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 [...]

World Breastfeeding Week

Not in a million years would I think that I would be writing a post on World Breastfeeding Week when my baby is over a year old. I thought our breastfeeding story would be long done. World Breastfeeding is taking place Aug 1-7, 2014. Their slogan and theme this year is Breastfeeding- A Winning Goal [...]
