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. My daughter is growing up fast, becoming more and more independent and has a huge personality that sucks people in. While I was watching her one day…

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.

But Who Will She Play With?

I sat in the seat across from her and tirelessly tried to explain that I was happy with the number of children I had. I felt as though I was defending myself and my choice. “But you never know, right.” No, I do. I attempted to explain that my family was complete with one child…

Over the Bridge

This weekend we took a walk.   The same one we took in 2012   oh my heart. Thank you for Sharing Related Posts:She’s 5 And I’m Not Cool AnymoreNot Quite a FisherwomanWhen You’re Five

Not Quite a Fisherwoman

The temperature was right and the water was calm. There was a crowd of people and we had found the perfect spot amongst them for our morning at the fishing derby. We were with friends which made it equally as exciting and our daughter was pumped. Worms on the line, fishing pole set, Dad in position,…

When You’re Five

Little feet pedal as fast as they can up the road ahead of me. I hold my breath, praying a car doesn’t come. Keeping the urge to run after her and carry her the rest of the way to the house to myself. We stop every few minutes to pick a flower, write in the dirt,…
