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.

The Parent/Teacher Interview

I waited outside of the room for my turn to meet with her teachers. I had a thousand questions about her progress and couldn’t focus on just one. What did she do all day while I was at work? How was her behaviour? Was she learning at the right pace? Did she pay attention? Was…

The Blue Guitar

His hands sweep over the strings smoothly as I look on from my spot on the couch.  The blue guitar sits perfectly in his lap and he pulls it in snuggly hugging it closely. His eyes close and he feels the music he sings. I watch his movements. There are so many times I want…

The Things We Do

All of us do things for our kids that we would never normally do. It’s to keep them happy, to keep them quiet, to keep them calm, and to keep them from killing each other. These things range from allowing the family pet on the bed all night when they’re usually not allowed or letting…
