Spring has (kinda) sprung- Yoga Spring Newsletter

When we think of Spring, don’t we think of birds chirping, buds blooming, and babies being born? I do. We may still have loads of snow, but I know so many of you have recently given birth! Congratulations to all the new parents who are (or might be) reading this! I wanted to send you […]

Birthday Barbies, bubblegum and butterflies

Birthday Barbies, bubblegum and butterflies

Well, that’s that. I feel like an old mama. Yesterday, Babe turned five! I won’t write in great detail how awesome she is, but she is. I brought Bug to daycare and she and I spent the whole day alone–so rare, these mommy-daughter dates, but so important. She’s one of those kids, pretty deprived of […]

Creating a birth plan: A guide

Creating a birth plan: A guide

You do not need to have a birth plan, but it can be a good idea, so your voice will be heard when you might not feel like speaking. Some doctors/hospitals will give you a template to fill out. You can review this guide and then talk to your doctor about the options that speak […]

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

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 […]

Easy Peasey "Cheesey" Parsley Pesto and Pinto Bean Pasta

Easy Peasey “Cheesey” Parsley Pesto and Pinto Bean Pasta

Well, the friends of mine who are professional food bloggers will probably cringe at the recipe name. I think it’s perfect. It seems this mama has “gone veg” again. I was a vegetarian for most of my life, and started eating it around the time Papa and I got together. Then pregnancy, kids, life, I […]

Breastfeeding resources for Montreal moms

Breastfeeding resources for Montreal moms

In my prenatal yoga classes this week, the requested theme has been breastfeeding. It’s a topic, that up until now, I’ve shied away from bringing into the studio. Why? I guess it’s that I don’t want to be known as or thought of as one of “those women who push breastfeeding.” What a touchy subject, […]

Free meditation download of "Kindness" and Kira Willey’s New Release for the New Year

Free meditation download of “Kindness” and Kira Willey’s New Release for the New Year

Mindful Moments for Kids by Kira Willey, is music to this children’s yoga teacher (and mama’s) ears! The 30-track spoken word CD is not meant to be listened to all in one shot. Adults don’t have the attention span for that! The nature of the mid is to continue to wander, which is why so […]

Escaping the cold, heading to the tropics at Montreal's Biodome

Escaping the cold, heading to the tropics at Montreal’s Biodome

We’re starting to get into the swing of things in 2016, which means Papa and I are back to work and the kids are more regularly at daycare. It also means we have to have family days on *gasp* the weekend. I was a little afraid to go out to the Biodome on a Saturday, […]

Celebrating the holidays at the Ecomuseum

Celebrating the holidays at the Ecomuseum

I’d have a hard time coming up with a more perfect place to walk around on a snowy New Year’s Eve Day. We love the Ecomuseum at any time of year, but in the falling snow, it’s absolute magic. Read here for a more in-depth description of the park, which we visit as often as […]

Raffi Giveaway! + Review of Owl Singalong and Nursery Rhyme Parade!

Raffi Giveaway! + Review of Owl Singalong and Nursery Rhyme Parade!

Within the same week, the week before we’d head out on the road for a little holiday, I received two CDs for review that I was sure would bring me for a trip down memory lane. Very different times in my life, however. Born in the ’80s, Raffi was where it was at. I don’t […]
