In Praise of Epidurals: My Birth Story at Ingenue Mom

Today I am guest posting for the first time over at Ingenue Mom! Cameron was looking for a variety of birth stories to share on her blog this week, and I have the honour of being first up with my pro-drugs experiences. Pop on over to Ingenue Mom and check it out. While you’re there, explore a bit, because […] Read more…

So, How Do I Look?

WAIT! STOP SCROLLING! If you’re reading this post in your Google reader or email, you absolutely must click on the title above, and pop on over for a quick visit at This Mom Loves. I have a new look! While I love the template I’ve been working with, the header was a little uninspired. The flowers […] Read more…

Playhouse Disney Canada – Review and Giveaway

Giveaway open to Canadians. I love television. There, I said it. I also allow my girls to watch TV…almost every day! Of course, I always sit right beside them, watching intently and discussing the storylines. I would never, ever use their TV time to get my own work done, or to have a moment of peace. (My fingers […] Read more…

Take Your Family To Mont Tremblant

You should definitely not take your family to Mont Tremblant. Well, unless you love beautiful scenery and a relaxing atmosphere. Tons of activities for kids and grownups alike. Oh, and great accommodations and fabulous food. I guess if you’re in to all of that, you could maybe consider visiting. My mom retired from teaching this year, […] Read more…

Read It: The Secret Life of Bees

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd is a few years old (written in 2003), but I just read it for the first time and I was blown away. It’s the kind of book-reading experience where you want to keep sneaking away to devour just another few pages. This novel was our latest book […] Read more…

What To Give a New Mom

{2017 Update: While this post is now a throwback, I actually used this idea when my beloved ECE had her second child last October, and it seemed to be a hit again. For her I included dry shampoo, mascara, a fall decoration, chocolates and more!} When Olivia was born, one of the most special gifts […] Read more…
