A Healthy Daddy…

CoreyBen BW Watermarked

...is a happy daddy. He may not always be politically correct, and he'll utter a cuss word once or twice.  But my two boys have the very best dad that they could ever have.  And they know it.  Those silly moments when daddy intentionally drops a mild swear word, just to see them giggle.  I think he has decided that that giggle is worth the glare he's going to get from me if I happen to hear it. His sense of humor is his best quality, and I … [Read more...]

Strawberries for Canada Day!

Canada Day Cake 1b

I love Canada day.  Everyone dresses up in their reds and whites, and we head down to the big park where the town puts on a party for all ages.  Free BBQ,  bouncy castle, giant water slide on the hill... (powered by the fire truck)! It's an event we all look forward to!  My kids get to run around and act silly, while we sit in the shade, enjoy our lunch and listen to the live music. Canada Day rocks. At home, that evening, we have our own … [Read more...]

Celebrating Summer with Kinder Surprise (& Minions!)

Minions 3pk

We're down to the last few days of school.  Though much of the country is celebrating today as the last day, my kids have to go to school Monday and Tuesday to enjoy a day on the field full of fun and games. Followed by a day of goodbyes and final marks.  I must admit, as much as I have been counting down the days until I can sleep in again, I'm not quite sure I'm ready to have my kids under my feet for two full months... Strategy will come … [Read more...]

Hush Little Baby Don’t You Cry… #BetterForBaby #PGMom

And I had all the feels. This morning in my inbox was a link to a video.  Now, I knew before I clicked the link that a video from Pampers was certainly going to make me cry.  I knew that I would likely sit here afterwords, thinking about my own babies, the memories I have of them when they were little, and wish I could once again hold on to them.  I think that's why I cry when I watched it.  My time with babies is over...and I miss it … [Read more...]

Early mornings heading to practice before school starts. Cooking special meals throughout … [Read more...]

Clean Up the Pee with Lysol®

Lysol Bathroom

I am not one to keep secrets… I strongly dislike cleaning my bathrooms.  Grateful that we have two at 7am when we are all trying to get out of the door, but on bathroom cleaning day, having two just means I have to clean two.  I’m super happy that with a few of my favourite products, I can do this relatively painlessly. Now…aside from my cat, I am the only girl in the house…which means I clean a lot of pee.  Pee on the wall, pee on the … [Read more...]

Front Step Make-Over with PC Flowers

front step

I cannot hide it.... It sits out there for every single passerby to see.  My front step.  This past winter caused a lot of damage to the paint, and it is in some serious need of love right now.  And I'll get to it, honestly, I will.  When the stars align and mercury crosses venus I'll find the time to get out there and replace a few boards and paint it... Until that day, it'll be what it'll be. Ok, I lied a little. I can hide it. No, … [Read more...]
