Review: Oops! I wish I had known this before-- The Parenting Handbook

Review: Oops! I wish I had known this before– The Parenting Handbook

One of the first things I remarked about OOPS! the Parenting Handbook: I Wish I Had Known This Before, was its size. It’s thin–100 pages long. A parenting book that a parent can actually find time to read. The second thing, the author who is  clearly well educated, doesn’t overwhelm us with big words. A […]

Limiting ourselves, limiting our kids (or how I stopped rocking Bug to sleep)

Limiting ourselves, limiting our kids (or how I stopped rocking Bug to sleep)

Every day we’re given the chance to start over. To be and do anything we want. I believe that it’s our limiting beliefs that hold us back from greatness. Once we start to tap into these ideas–that we are the ones in control of our own lives, we can start to recognize the way we […]

Help this mama pick some art, and WIN!

As part of my requirements for becoming a yoga therapist, a have a number of case studies to complete on my topic of choice.

Mama’s spicy chickpea, root soup

I added no dried spices, though allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg etc. would probably […]

Mama Yoga and the Story of Namaste: Book review

I am so grateful for the amount of work I have these days. The month of February was a little too intense– I was teaching one or two, sometimes three yoga classes every day. I am moving more and more towards teaching adults– pregnant women and women who are trying to conceive. Still, however, mom […]

The Thaw

The Thaw

The snow is melting in Montreal. I’m on top of my game, feeling in fine form in all the ways. School, kids, love and social life have me all filled up. I’m in charge of my health and wellness. I’m sleeping more than I probably have in four years. 365 days ago, I didn’t feel […]

Mama's veggie lentil rice

Mama’s veggie lentil rice

I’ve been making a version of this dish for years and decided it could use a bit more excitement–and nutrition. Lentils are great, but just like with my Root Veggie Dhal, adding a bit of veg made this dish that much yummier, and healthier! Ingredients 4T oil (coconut, olive, whatever) 1 med onion, chopped 2 […]

The World’s 1st Smart Bottle!

Well parents, in case you didn’t know it, we really, really need technology to help us parent. Maternal instinct? What’s that? And get this: Whatever the reason a mom bottlefeeds, she must be too incompetent to figure out how to do it. Luckily, Baby Gigl is here! It’s the world’s first Smart Bottle. How Stupid! From […]
