My kids watch TV and I’m ok with it!

The amount of televisions in my childhood home [...]

Princess Peach is just over 3 years old and since 2014 has started we have said goodbye to two big “baby” items; her beloved bottles and her diapers! There was just one more item for us to bid farewell to; her pacifier or what she called “baba”. Everytime The Hubster and I decide we are [...]

Our fall family tradition

My So-Called Mommy Life

You know when you have such a great time together as a family that you just don’t want the day to end? It’s every weekend for me but especially this morning. I wished it could have lasted way longer than it did! I guess it’s become somewhat of a tradition since Princess Peach was born [...]

3 year olds need warning labels

Toddler Warning My So-Called Mommy Life

Three year-olds should come with a variety of warning labels: May combust at any time. No warning needed. Speak to her at your own risk. She’s screaming at you, can’t you understand her? We are 2 months and 5 days into Princess Peach being three. Oh my goodness. Why didn’t anyone tell me that the [...]

The Hubster plays hockey every Sunday evening. This past Sunday I took both kids to watch his game. Princess Peach has gone to many games but this past week was Little Dude’s first ever hockey game and first time watching his daddy play! He wouldn’t go near The Hubster with his helmet on.

After she received her Hebrew name our Rabbi made a little speech to us, as [...]

I absolutely love daycare for so many reasons but there is one thing about daycare that I don’t like- the germs.No matter how clean [...]

Signing Time equals Fun Learning Time #StreamTeam

Signing Time! Netflix #StreamTeam

When I worked as a  behavioural therapist for children with autism, many of the children I worked with were motivated by movies, or television shows.

Celebrating Princess Peach’s birthday at Kidville Canada

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 [...]
