Giveaway! Vertiges and Tempo tickets at Montreal’s Planetarium

Woah. Dude. Papa and I went to the Montreal Planetarium the other night. Date night for the first time in forever. It’s no secret that my family goes to Espace pour la vie’s events quite regularly. But we’d never been to the Planetarium. The reason is that we usually don’t do much without the kids, [...]

Self Care

Self Care

Every Wednesday, before I teach a postnatal yoga class at Happy Tree, I try to make it to Christine’s Hatha/Yin class. I love the class and it gets me in a great place to teach all those mamas and babies! Admittedly, my life is no longer babies, babies, babies. I spend some time away from [...]

Making salt clay Christmas tree ornaments

It’s starting to feel like Christmas! There’s snow on the ground and I’ve started buying gifts. The trees not yet up but I’m hoping to change that this afternoon. Today we went to my friend Cristina‘s and made salt clay Christmas ornaments. Doing crafts with the kids is something I absolutely love. Let me rephrase: [...]

AppleCheeks Delishmas Giveaway!

A year and a half ago, I was a bit of a mess. I was at the height of my PPD/anxiety. I was scared to leave the house with my two kids. I didn’t drive (I had my license but was terrified to get behind the wheel). I was dependent on a lot of people. [...]

Help build the Peace Cafe!

Help build the Peace Cafe!

Caffè della Pace: Peace Cafe. How beautiful does that sound? A space in Montreal that will provide prenatal classes, breastfeeding support, community, a warm place where women from all over can find friendship. This is the dream of Rivka Cymbalist, my friend, and the doula who attended Bug’s birth and helped me with so much [...]

Sweet Sleep book review and Giveaway

Sweet Sleep book review and Giveaway

I wasn’t so sure when I saw the title of the book, “Sweet Sleep.” Great. Another book about sleep by “experts,” I thought. Many of the books published these days tend to be variations of Ferber and Cry it Out. You know the advice that goes something like, “be sure to put towels down in [...]

The tooth about Bug

The tooth about Bug

This boy, a few months from being two is just about as awesome as it gets. He’s hilarious and so smart. He loves dancing and sings mantras with me. He is my little love bug. There’s nothing wrong with this kid. So there’s gotta be something, right? A while back, we noticed something was weird [...]

That's a wrap! Homemade pizza night (FlatOut giveaway!)

That’s a wrap! Homemade pizza night (FlatOut giveaway!)

I have two sisters. There are 15 years between them, and coming from a blended family, we rarely all lived together at the same time. I actually don’t even know if they ever lived together. As the middle child, I lived with both of them and have some fond and some not so fond memories [...]

All aboard the fun express! Our amazing trip to Exporail

All aboard the fun express! Our amazing trip to Exporail

The first thing I thought when we arrived at Exporail: Why on Earth aren’t there more people here?  Visiting the country’s biggest railway museum was a huge hit. We spent four hours at the museum and our entire family had a wonderful time. We were lucky enough to stumble upon this gem right before Halloween, [...]

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. [...]
