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…

UncommonGoods this Mother’s Day

I’m not someone who expects something on Mother’s Day; a nice card, a craft, and some family time is fine for me. But if there was more out there that appealed to me I might be interested in a gift, a small token of appreciation, a little gem from the hearts of those I care…

Turning everyday household transactions into charitable donations

Between the endless baskets of laundry, groceries, cooking and cleaning, us moms have a long to-do list. Some days it isn’t easy to remember anything beyond household responsibilities!

Eliminating the Strain from Vacuuming

Sucking Up: Eliminating the Strain From Vacuuming Nobody likes vacuuming. True, it munches calories and tones your arms, but it’s also dirty, sweaty, and so noisy it drowns out the television, your favourite cleaning playlist and most coherent thoughts. It’s time to make hoovering a choice, not a chore, instead of letting your vacuum cleaner…

Breaking Down the Stigma of Therapy

Therapy, for myself, was something I had long associated with weakness and the inability to help myself.

Great Expectations

What on EARTH would make someone want another baby? I was baffled and could feel tears stinging my eyes for the second time that day, there was NO WAY I was ever doing this again! I looked at my husband and told him with purpose “NO MORE BABIES!” He looked down, took my hand, and…

Ninja Chop to His Rugged Face

There are days when I look up from whatever I am doing and catch Brian at just the right moment.  His head tilted on a perfect angle making his face look rugged and sexy, his smile perfect and beaming just for me. I catch my breath and am thankful for him. And then there are…

“Love Your Face”

When I first started blogging I was in a bad place. I needed desperately to find a way to connect with people who understood what I was going through, and I needed proof that they existed. When I came across Kimberly Morand’s blog I almost exploded. She wrote about her struggles with PPD and then…
