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 [...]

The 5 types of daycare parents

daycare

Over the last few weeks we have had a few visits to Little Dude’s daycare. They do these transitional visits so the babies can see the space and meet the staff while the parents are able to accost question the staff on anything and everything. Over my visits and from doing these visits 2 years [...]

Toilet training essentials with Kandoo

toilet training toddler essentials what to have

In late June, I took the plunge (pun, intended)and toilet trained Princess Peach. I prepped Princess Peach long and hard about the “diaper fairies” coming to our house one night and taking away her diapers. They would then deliver them to babies who needed them. 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

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 [...]

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 [...]

Do you listen to everything you say?

PPcarride

Some days I feel like I talk ALL.DAY. LONG. My mouth starts moving the minute the kids wake up and then it doesn’t stop until Princess Peach is fast asleep in bed. We talk about what we see, what we are doing, the pee and poo in the toilet, we read books, sing songs. The [...]

Toddler Pampering with Kandoo Bubble Bath

Kandoo Bubble Bath Kids

I don’t know about you, but I’m a soak-in-the-bath kind of girl. I’m not the type to throw rose petals in the bath or light candles around me either but I just love a relaxing hot, bubble bath. I find the water soothing and I always enjoy the quiet (well anytime, its quiet is just [...]

Don’t tell my daughter she is pretty

When I was growing up I was sensitive about my body and the way I looked. I was an athlete so I was always more muscular than the other girls. I never had that naturally skinny teenage body. I was curvy with an ass and boobs. My calves were always a little meatier and even [...]

One year ago tonight I was pregnant and excited for the arrival of our little boy the next day. This is the last picture I have of just me and Princess Peach the night before my little guy arrived. So crazy how much happens in one year!
