Let’s Get This Party Started with Netflix

We are a week and a half away from that time of year.

Back to school!

Can I get an Amen?!

My child doesn’t even stay home and I’m all “LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!”

I’m also the crazy woman in the stationary aisle sniffing the new books and hoarding all of the sharpies.

This is my time of year, people!

The smell of plastic and markers gets me overly excited and I start throwing things into the cart that we’ll never use.

You get a backpack and you get a backpack and you get a backpack!

It’s around this time of year where all the crafts that were planned at the beginning of the summer, the well-meaning play dates, and the trips to the splash pad taper off and you stare at the clock counting down the minutes until bedtime. In the background are cries of “I’m bored,” “I want something to eat,” “she hit me in the face,” and you close your eyes and pray.

Netflix has heard your prayers and they are bringing you new shows to occupy those cries of boredom until that heavenly yellow bus pulls up at the end of your driveway.


Shows that will encourage, talk about confidence, problem solving, and are just plain fun.


Grab some snacks, snuggle in, and enjoy the last week. You’re almost there.

This isn’t Goodbye…

I’ve been on vacation for the past week and I’ve been loving it. The time with my daughter, the sleeping in, the activities, and the warmth of summer.

Road Side Assistance

Last Thursday was a beautiful, very hot, gorgeous day. It was the type of day that made you want to get a cool drink, blow up your floaty, put on your swimsuit, and lay on the water all day. It was a high of 36 degrees here in Ontario, with warnings about the humidity, and…

The Worst Day Ever

We rode our bikes furiously down the sidewalk. We were 12 so the safest place for us was there, where pedestrians walked. Pedestrian safety wasn’t on our minds as we raced each other through the narrow spaces, around signs, through people, and over blocks of cement, we were young and we had the wind in our hair….

We Love An Adventure

We have a lot of activities planned for this summer. Many we can do in our own city but there are a few we’ve had to travel for. And that’s just fine by me. I love a car ride. And my family loves adventure! We like to pack up last minute, go where our imaginations…

Welcome to the Neighbourhood

We have an abandoned house across the road from us. It’s very old, has holes in the roof and walls, sits on 70 acres of land, and has a barn where a stray cat we call “Molly’s brother” lives. He’s probably not even related to our cat but we like to think he is. We…

She’s 5 And I’m Not Cool Anymore

Their giggles could be heard from outside, three care free girls behind the closed door of a bedroom, squealing with an unimaginable amount of energy while my daughter scrambled to find her bathing suit. Her friends had just arrived with their parents and we were getting ready to hop in the pool on what was…

Play Date Anxiety

Because my husband and I work full-time our weekends are filled up with family obligations, activities, and adventures. We do play dates but when we do the parents are there because we are usually visiting with them too. However, this week I’m on vacation and I’ve arranged for my daughter to have a friend over…
