With summer in full swing, families across the country are planning their vacations. Time away from the office and house work and more time to spend together as a family. During the summer months, road trips are an ideal option for family getaways. They are cheaper than flying and can open up a lot of [...]

Summer Fun With K’NEX

My daughter and I try to grab some play time together when we can. Our youngest still takes two naps in a day so if we are home together during a nap, I enjoy pulling out a few different toys that she and I can do together. These are toys that are quiet, require us [...]

I can’t believe we are already just over half way through the LEGO DUPLO 30 Days of Play Challenge on the Today’s Parent website. Each day for just over two weeks, we have been checking the Today’s Parent website for new challenges, or play ideas. If you are following me on Facebook or Twitter, then [...]

Have You Played Today?

I’ve been at home on maternity leave with both of my girls for almost ten months now. Today, I was thinking back to the first day at home with both of them, alone, and how terrified I was. I still have days when I wake up in a panic because I don’t know what I [...]

My husband went shopping with our oldest daughter this afternoon to get a present for her cousin and to run some other errands. They ended up going to a very popular toy store here in Canada (and probably in the US too). I stayed home to get some things done and to spend some time [...]

Introducing Kids to ABCs

Our oldest is three years (and three months) old and she told me a couple of weeks ago that she didn’t like to look at books by herself because she couldn’t read them. I’m guessing it frustrates her and she focuses on the words. We have been working on looking at the pictures and letting [...]

I Wish for You

Tonight, I stood over my three year old daughter, then my five month old daughter and watched them sleep and I found myself listing things that I wished for them in my head. I just wanted to share. I wish that you find friends as loving as you are. I wish that you have many [...]

If you came here because you did a search on the words in my title and you are looking for answers, or for a post that is going to make you feel better, this is not it. I’m where you are right now. How do you make the decision to put a pet down? We [...]
