Is THAT What I Sound Like?

I could hear her little girl imagination from the living room where I sat, taking five minutes to relax after cleaning what felt like the whole house. The sound of her faint whispers traveled down the hallway, her tiny voice changing as she created the characters, playing out the scene in front of her. I…

Summer So Far

I haven’t been around here lately… I’ve been doing, seeing, watching, listening, dining, and making memories. With these people. Suddenly life slowed down and became about sun, swimming, long drives, and yard sales. Where I found these fabulous shoes… We’ve had visits to the hospital after Brian found a Tick on him that had burried…

“Mom, is tomorrow Jesus’ birthday?” “No, babe, tomorrow is Canada Day.” “Who’s that guys name that can see us? “I’m not sure?” “He knows my name and your name and our cats?” “Have I met him?” “NO mom, He see’s us when we’re at walmart” “Did we go to His house?” “Mooooom! He lives in…

The Stick in the Mud

The other night while I was putting my daughter to bed, I started to think about how I was as a mother. About how I parented. What would my daughter say about me 16 years from now if she had a blog? I don’t know that I would like it. I’m not the fun one,…

But Will You Have More?

Now that we’ve made the decision not to have anymore children discussions surrounding babies, children, and pregnancy has become harder for other people than it is for me. They still want me to reproduce. Even though I can’t without the aid of medication, tracking, praying, standing on my head, jumping up and down, running in…

The Registration Saga.. It just got Better!

The school registration saga continues. I contacted the school I had initially wanted our daughter to go to, which was out of our district but close to our daycare and was informed that our daugher’s transfer forms would not be looked at until a minimum of three weeks after the first day of school. Three…

Gardening Time

We have finally reached gardening time here in my little spot in Ontario… however, it’s still a little cold some days, the breeze can be a bit chilly, and I’m currently wearing a sweater. Canada. I’m lucky to have a husband who is self sufficiant, looks for things he can do on his own with…
