Cat Snuggles Make Good Bedtime Stories

I wish you could see. I’m in the dark laying at the end of my daughters bed. She called me in because she needed someone to help her feel safe. Paul, our youngest cat child, has snuggled in behind her knees. This is major. Paul was picked out from the animal rescue by my daughter. They…

Netflix… Making You Question if There Was Ever A World Without Technology

Lately, in our house, we have been trying to limit the amount of screen time. And by that I mean our daughter has lost her screen time. BUT. When she has her screen time, it is generally monitored closely and can be lost should her behaviour not reflect our family values. And by that I…

A Mindful Life

Here in this life be mindful.   Wear that dress that you are saving.   Tell the girl in HR that she has a really nice sweater on, ask where she got it (maybe she has a coupon?)   Get angry at injustice (and do something about it).   Say NO, and use it as…

Announcing …. this Amazing Kid

My girl, like many children out there, is obsessed with YouTube reviews and toy openings and families and kids. We watch these online celebs with her and cry silently as our ears bleed. Just kidding. No. I’m. Not. But, as our child’s obsession grew so did her talent. She pretended to review her toys, our…

They Say it’s Your Birthday – but Even if They’re Lying You Should Still Celebrate

“They say it’s your birthday!!” “Happy Birthday!” …what? It’s not your birthday? Well, hold on to your hat because I’m going to talk about it anyway. And I bet you know someone with a birthday this month. Great, thanks for reminding me, I do know someone and I have nothing planned. I got chu. And…

His Name Is Mr. Super – But Don’t Ask Him About His Powers

My daughter and I have a routine each night before she goes to sleep. I lay with her and she tells me the good things about her day. And then the not so good things about her day. Sometimes the not so great things outweigh the good, but we always find a way to put…

How Do You Escape From Your Own Brain?

When I say I’m normal. That I’m fine and don’t need meds. That I should start to wean off or go cold turkey because I’ve been on this ride for so long it’s old to me and I’m no longer experiencing the thrill. That’s when my brain reminds me that I still suffer. That’s when…

Netflix Prompts – So Your Kids Will Finally Watch Those 90s Movies With You!

I love to see an old show pop up on Netflix that I used to watch when I was a teen. The memories come flooding back and I inundate my daughter with quotes, bits of information, and trivia from my favorites. Que her eye rolls. I couldn’t wait to introduce her to The Muppets, Ace…

Rainy Summer Nights are Saved by Netflix Download Option!

The past weekend we packed our bags and headed to our family cottage for a three-day mini vacation. We threw all of the bags into the vehicle, most of the garage, and three blocks of cheese because, you never know, and we made the three-hour drive to spend a weekend with my entire family; brothers, sister-in-law, parents,…
