It’s 6 o’clock. Do your kids know where you are?

NaBloPoMo_November_2014 I think the worst, most stressful thing in my life these days has been picking the kids up from daycare on time. I have 2 kids who are in daycare/afterschool care in two different locations about 20 minutes apart, and they both need to be picked up by 6pm. Even though I’ve been very lucky so […]

Disney’s Cinderella ~ Trailer

NaBloPoMo_November_2014 And just like that, I’m a little girl again. Can’t wait to see this movie! It’s my favourite Disney film. And I don’t care what the fairy godmother says, those shoes look hella uncomfortable.

Save the sensitive skin this winter (#PGmom)

Tide Pods Free & gentle I’m all about looking after my (and the peanut’s) dry skin this winter. Last year the winter lasted a hundred years (true story) and we both itched our ways through it. This year I’m taking control of the situation. My friends at P&G sent me a Sensitive Skin Laundry pack and their timing couldn’t have been […]

Use Your Common Cents! (#PGmom)

PG_CommonCents_Logo Earlier this month I wrote about attending a Financial Literacy Month seminar with the lovely Gail Vaz-Oxlade. Going through my notes for this seminar I thought I’d share some of the tips I learned about getting and keeping a handle on your money. Do a spending analysis (at least 6 months worth) so that you […]

Reflected On The Page

PreshusMe - TD Reads ParentDish SC When I was a little girl, I absolutely loved to read. I read everything! One of my all-time favourite stories was (and still is!) Robert Munsch’s “The Paper Bag Princess”. The powerful tale of a princess who had it all and lost it, only to realize that she doesn’t need the silly rich prince to […]

Diaper Genie for sale

NaBloPoMo_November_2014 I’d like to go ahead and tempt fate by declaring with all authority, that the peanut is now officially potty trained!!!! Yaaaaaaay! *kermit flail* I think it’s been about two or three weeks since we last put a pull up on him, and it’s been at least two weeks since his last accident. TWO WEEKS!!! […]

bathroom privacy? what is this thing you speak of?

IMG_20131216_212646a Anyone else take a shower this morning with a pre-schooler asleep on the floor next to the toilet? Anyone? Bueller? (I’m lookin at you, other moms reading this blog) These are the kinds of things no one tells you about when you have kids. You basically give up all expectation of bathroom privacy. I’d lock […]

Movie Trailer Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings

NaBloPoMo_November_2014 I’m having a hard time buying Christian Bale as Moses (Charlton Heston is the only Moses I know) but I’m completely looking forward to watching this movie. It looks amazing.  It’s not that I don’t think Bale can do a good job, it’s just that I have a hard time seeing him as his characters in […]

Book Review: Crossed by Ally Condie

15812814 Crossed by Ally Condie My rating: 3 of 5 stars Crossed is the second book in the Matched series. As annoying as I sometimes (usually) find fiction geared towards young adults, I’m actually really interested in finding out where this story is going. The first book, Matched, was much better than the first. Matched had all the markings […]
