Is There Therapy for Hamsters?

I woke up brilliant the other morning. Bright eyed and bushy-tailed. I was going to be the fun mom! Throw caution to the wind! Not get upset when the cushions were pulled off of the couch and thrown across the room and into the kitchen because they were bombs and bombs need to be thrown away…

Netflix is our Valentine

Today was Valentine’s Day celebrations at my daughters school. She dressed in white and red… excuse me, pink, because red is not her colour, and she skipped through the school with her bag, excited to give valentines to her classmates. After her day was done she burst through the door, dumped her valentines mail bag…

Capturing Grief

On October 15th 2012 I had my first miscarriage. It was a pain I have never experienced in my life, one that I can’t equate with anything else, and a memory that holds tight. I was certain I would never feel that kind of loss again. Then, on December 12, 2014, I had my second…

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.

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…

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…

Over the Bridge

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,…
