Baby, it’s cold outside. Want to go see Disney on Ice?

Disney on Ice is celebrating 100 Years of Magic. I’m taking my kids, and want to give another lucky family the chance to come too! In September, I took Babe and Bug to go see Treasure Trove at the Bell Centre. They loved it, but one little complaint: Where the heck was the cast of […]

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Happy Holidays, however you and your family spend them. Over here, Christmas and its commercialism is a bit tough for me. I cringed the other day, as I found myself shopping in Walmart’s fluorescent lighting… But my girl asked for a watch. I opted for Hello Kitty instead of Disney Princesses, and it turns out […]

Déjà vu and Play it Again

Déjà vu and Play it Again

Déjà vu. Most of us experience it from time to time–the sensory flash of the familiar. Sometimes good, sometimes not. Smells that rewind our lives by 10 years. Songs that magically transport us to another place, another time. Sometimes we can place the familiarity, other times it’s not so easy. I live in dis-ease until […]

Giveaway! The Great Pumpkin Ball

Giveaway! The Great Pumpkin Ball

Today was our third annual trip to The Great Pumpkin Ball. Much like the lanterns, the older she gets, the more Babe appreciates the pumpkins. We first took her when she was Bug’s age and Bug was in utero. One of the greatest things about visiting the Botanical Gardens around Halloween is the outdoor activities. […]

Square pegs

Our family isn’t like other families. But whose is? We’ve been feeling even more different these days. Our attempt at getting Babe to go to a conventional, convenient and inexpensive daycare was a #fail. When we told the director Babe wasn’t coming back she made me feel like a failure. It was fault things weren’t […]
