On Not Being Super Mom

So after months and months of feeling like I was trying to swim with a boulder attached to my ankle, I finally feel like I am getting my head above water.  I wish I could just chalk it up to a few busy months, but I was really feeling the weight of all my obligations.  …

When less is more

One of the best things that ever happened to my family was the time that I was laid off when I was 8 months pregnant with my son.  At the time I was terrified about how we were going to pay the bills, especially since I didn’t qualify for Employment Insurance (EI), but now safely …

Snug As A Bug In A Burger Bun

So I am not really wimpy woman when it comes to bugs.  I like to camp, I still play in the dirt, and I am not afraid to “take care of” the occasional centipede.  However, I do not really like when bugs invade my house, and I am not the type to eat the bug …

I run an educational based home daycare business.  I started it when my son was seven months old, and I love that it allows me the best of both worlds. I get to be a working mother and a stay-at-home mom. For the last year I have been on maternity leave so I could have …

Life without vitamin P

PEANUT BUTTER or vitamin P as my husband likes to call it.  It is The Staple in our house that we thought we could never live without.  It was the one stipulation my husband had when I started the home daycare: that we could never be a peanut free or even peanut safe household.  We …

My BIG little man

  My son has been three for almost two months now, and for a while it did not seem like much had changed since he was two.  We had a big birthday party for him and celebrated his day, but other than that life has continued as normal.  There did not seem to be any …

Sunday at the lake

Since it was a nice spring day yesterday we took the kids to the lake. My son ran the entire 2km path, so my husband built a fort with the kids in the living room when we got back so I could make dinner.  I love Sundays like that!

A Nice Mommy Moment

  Being a mom is a pretty tough job, but the payoff is amazing.  This is pretty common knowledge among parents.  Yet you will still find us reveling in those moments when all the poopy bums, being spit up on, and having to say the same thing 100 times is worth it because our kid …

HELLO TAXMAN

Every day during the month of February I ran down to my front door to look in my mail box. I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of a special letter … (wait for it) … my husband’s T4!  Yes, that’s right, I was excited to receive my husband’s pay information so that I could fill …
