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…

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…

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

When Your Child is a Worrier

This weekend I noticed a pattern with my daughter and upcoming events or activities. She worries. She becomes obsessed with the details and asks numerous questions in order to figure out the facts prior to her arriving at the event or activity. While on our way for ice cream she was told by a friend…

The Big Five

This weekend my little love turned five We celebrated with cake, fun, presents, and friends. Zip lining, rock climbing, ball pits, and blow up castles. Wore those kids right out! The big kids too…   So much fun and guaranteed to leave everyone needing a nap afterward. Which I might have planned. So as we…

Penis – It’s Not a Bad Word

She coloured quietly at her easel while Brian and I talked, wisps of red and purple going across her page, shapes forming. “Pennie!” My daughter exclaimed, out of the blue. “Pardon?” What was she talking about? “You know, penis.” Well, obviously. She looked up at us and stopped colouring, “but we can’t say penis, it’s…
