I will be missing some of my own Mother’s Day. That Sunday morning, I will be driving back home from Calgary. I am completely excited about a meeting I will be having while there and it really is important that I make that trip. On the other hand, I am so sad to be missing [...]


I am turning 39 today. I will be excited to read any birthday greetings left on my Facebook or here. And I can’t wait to open up my cards and presents. I saw a card on the table today that said “To Mommy”; that one is getting opened first. I think I settled on Sushi [...]

Today, I Lost a Part of Me

This is a hard post to write, but one I have been thinking about for the past week. I guess I just had a feeling that a chapter in my life was about to come to an end. Tonight at 8:40pm, I held my cat (Oreo) in my arms as she quietly fell asleep, then [...]

Guh. It is so embarrassing to admit this, but I have an irrational fear of zombies. Yes, I know zombies don’t exist; I said ‘irrational’ didn’t I? My top three fears (in order) are: 1) something happening to my kids or husband 2) zombies 3) natural disaster I know this isn’t right. Not only did [...]

I spent some time this weekend going through our daughter’s clothes. Both girls have outgrown most of the clothes that hung in their closets and I was growing tired of playing “Let’s See If This Fits.” I can’t believe that at four months old, our youngest daughter has already outgrown two boxes of clothes. I [...]

Welcoming Baby Bird

I know in one of my last posts, I was talking about the long weekend and how my plan was to take it easy and relax. Funny how life often takes a detour from our plans! On Sunday night, our daughter was born at 7:41pm after my water broke (while I was attempting to relax [...]

When this post sees the light of day, it means that we are off to the hospital to hopefully welcome our new daughter in to the world. I will be having a c-section if there is time for it due to some complications with our first pregnancy that ended in an emergency c-section so will [...]

Teamwork and Toddlers

Yesterday morning as we were all getting up and heading downstairs to start our day, I asked my daughter if I could hold her tissue box for her while she walked down the stairs so she wouldn’t fall. She held it out and said I could take one side of it and she would hold [...]

Happy Halloween

We are all ready for the ghosts and goblins to arrive. Our pumpkins are carved, the seeds have been roasted and 95% of our holiday candy is still here. Baby Bird is going as a Monkey this year and she is so excited to get going for candy. She’s been helping Papa Bird and myself [...]
