Ecomuseum Easter giveaway!

Because we’re both self employed, Papa and I are able to avoid crowds most of the time. We don’t tend to go grocery shopping, for example, on a Saturday morning. We also generally avoid museums when we know there will be crowds. But it was March Break! We took the kids to see The Butterflies […]

Mama’s meatballs (gluten, dairy-free)

The other day someone on Facebook said they were making meatballs and I got a craving. But the last time I made meatballs was with crappy store-bought breadcrumbs. I know people make meatballs with cheese as the binder, but that doesn’t work for us anymore, either. Then I came across a recipe that used the […]

Giveaway! a Baby DeeDee bed set of your colour choice

Admittedly, our sleep set-up isn’t what most people have. But it works very well for us and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Sometimes, when we’re out at Ikea or something, I look through all the fabrics and bedspreads, wondering what the kids will choose when they have their own rooms. Their own beds. […]

Childbirth: better safe than sorry?

Guest post by Andy Alaszewski As Editor of the international academic journal, Health, Risk & Society, I have recently published a series of articles which explore the paradoxical nature of childbirth.

Orange Root Veggie Dhal

Orange Root Veggie Dhal

We’re still in the thick of winter where I live, in Montreal. We’ve been devouring comfort foods like stews and roast chicken. Other comforts for my family include curries and root veggies.

Exactly like pulling teeth

In November, we had Bug’s top four teeth pulled. It was pretty intense. Two female dentists performed the surgery. They were gentle and compassionate and efficient.
