Emergency Kit Winner!

And the winner of the Red Cross Emergency Kit, courtesy of Public Safety Canada, is… Carla C. of Toronto, ON! She was entrant number 36 out of 80, and her number was chosen by Random Number Generation at random.org. FYI – If you’re wondering why there were 88 comments, but only 80 entries, it’s because some of those comments were mine. […] Read more…

Spring Closet Makeovers

Guess what I did on Victoria Day? Organized closets! Fun, eh? It all started when we realized that we were running out of room in our kitchen. The food cupboards were packed to overflowing, and you had to be careful when opening a door that you weren’t hit in the head with a falling bag […] Read more…

A Special Monthiversary – And A Giveaway For You!

Wow…it’s hard to believe that I published my first post here at This Mom Loves four months ago — although I didn’t get the nerve up to actually give out the address until a couple of weeks later! In honour of this monumental occasion, I wanted to direct your attention to some of the first posts […] Read more…

I’m A Feng Shui Failure

In  the staff room the other day, a couple of teachers were discussing Feng Shui, and on way back to class one of my colleagues suggested it would make a good post topic for my blog…so this is for you, J! (Although I’m not touching the whole ‘hammer-under-the-bed-for-fertility’ thing.) I have to warn you that some of my points will […] Read more…

Is Your Child Ready For Kindergarten? (Are You?)

Last week we attended Welcome To Kindergarten night at the school. Yes, our little Frannie is starting JK in 4 short months. Not only did we go to this function, but we actually argued over who was going to get to take Frannie, as siblings were discouraged from coming, and someone had to watch Maggie. […] Read more…

Follow Me!

As a few of you have noticed, I have another new sidebar item: you can finally follow This Mom Loves! I’m going to be totally honest: I did have this feature set up the first day I launched my blog, but the “No followers yet” notice was kind of a downer…so I waited a while to […] Read more…

When You’ve Got Some Free Time…

Okay, the free time thing was a joke (you’re here because you’re a mom, right?), but today I’m sharing three sites that I like to visit just for fun. Obviously, if you only have a little bit of time you should stay right here, but if you happen to be on bedrest, or your boss […] Read more…

Mother’s Day Moments

So I like gifts. Is that a bad thing to say? My husband is an excellent shopper (he strikes the perfect balance of responding to hints and using his own good taste) and it’s nice to open something new and special and just for me. So while I will soon switch gears to the whole […] Read more…

Win a Family Emergency Kit – And Get Prepared!

Did you know that this week was Emergency Preparedness Week? Neither did I, until a couple of days ago! Read on for more information, and to find out how you can win a Red Cross Emergency Kit for your family. Okay, so I consider myself a pretty organized person. Some people have other words for it, but to spin it […] Read more…
