I'm going to be real honest for a second. I'm freaking out. My first born is starting school this fall and it's a major milestone for all of us. I remember the moment he was born. I remember his first steps. His first taste of food. Those memories feel like they happened yesterday... and in … Continue reading Getting Ready for Kindergarten
I travel a bit for work. Not like George Clooney from the movie "Up in the Air" travel a lot, but I do my fair share. If I think back to 2018 I traveled for work 6 times. All of these times included a few nights away from my family. It's hard to be away … Continue reading “Who’s watching the kids?” – Why I’m Not Having Any Of It

It's been a hot few weeks, and we've been taking FULL advantage of this amazing weather (our summer season is so short might as well right?)

First off, he actually knows he has a party coming up and is VERY excited! We are heading to a local play park and … Continue reading Birthday Party Planing with Mable’s Labels!
This summer we've decided to discover our county! I must have been inspired by the Canada 150 campaign from last year because all we've been talking about is visiting the east coast. The one thing EVERYONE says when we tell them we'll be discovering Canada is that "it's so expensive." It's true. Visiting our home … Continue reading Traveling with Kids on a Budget in Canada.
At this time of year I find that cabin fever is really setting in. It's frustrating because it's hard to find really great activities for the kids - we're all going crazy and there are only so many more tobogganing days or indoor play park days that we can all handle. We know spring is … Continue reading Winter at the Zoo in Quebec
I'm such a fan of reading to my kids. We all know the benefits of reading, but which books should you lean towards? We discovered Julia Donaldson books about a year ago.

Those first two books are … Continue reading Best books for kids – Anything by Julia Donaldson
