Today I Ate a Rainbow! Kit

I received a Today I Ate a Rainbow! kit in the mail. I happened to get a kit because the creator, Kia Robertson, was giving one away on Twitter and I happened to tweet her back at the right time. The idea behind the kit is to teach kids, as well as their parents, to…

In Cahoots

A friend of mine shared this quote with me after I had written on Facebook that I was going to go insane.  I absolutely love it! “I’ve been to a lot of places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots.Apparently you can’t go alone, you have to be in Cahoots with someone. I’ve also never been in…

I am a … What Did You Say?

The other night we went out for Chinese food at our favourite Chinese place. Before the food was brought out waiter came by with eating utensils and place mats for each seat. The place mats contained information about the Chinese Zodiac. We all took a few minutes to find our own “animal.” My husband discovered…

Funny Little Things

So Tuesday was pure craziness mixed in with a tad of cuteness in our household. Our little man has decided he is a vegetarian.  Rarely will he eat any of the protein we put in front of him at meal time (the only exception is when chicken is in nugget form).  Yesterday at lunch I…

Holiday Gift Ideas 2011

Let’s admit it – we all have those people on our holiday gift lists that are very difficult to buy for.  They either buy what they want or they have everything they want and tell you not to get them anything. If you are struggling with gift ideas for these kinds of people, you have…

No means Yes

It seems as though in this house that NO means Yes. I do not know how many times a day I say NO.  Probably about a million.But it usually falls on deaf ears.Especially with my toddler.  You would think by now he would know what the world NO means. He seems to think NO gives…

Battle of the Bulge

All of my life I have struggled with my weight. In Grade 3 I was ashamed to admit that I tipped the scales at 100lbs while my classmates were around 70-80lbs.  In high school I was chubby and insecure.  I spent a lot of my time with my nose in my books trying to be…

Bad Hockey Mom

Yes, I will admit it, I am a bad hockey mom. My oldest son, who is 6 years old, started playing hockey in a league this past January.  He could have started the Fall before but we signed him up for skating to work on those skills first. Hockey is a big part of our…

Me vs The Food Network

The other day I turned the channel to one of my favourites, The Food Network. Now, I do not watch The Food Network for the great tips or the mouth watering recipes.  I watch for the food of course!  Have you seen Eat St., The Best Thing I Ever Ate, or Diner’s, Drive-ins, and Dives?…

My Last Baby

My baby turned 23 months old yesterday. This is makes me really sad.  I look at him and think, where did the time go?  How could 23 months pass so quickly when I was trying to savour every moment knowing he could be our last child. I cannot believe we are less than a month…
