Stranger Danger

There was an incident in our community a little while ago regarding a van approaching children in the neighbourhood. So there’s been a lot of buzz around talking to our kids about strangers. We haven’t had the “Stranger Danger” talk with E yet because, well… he’s only 3 and a half, and I wasn’t sure how to approach it … Continue reading

Note to self: No singing about meatballs

OK Parents, here’s a weird one for you… Our kids do odd things all the time right?

No Hockey, No Blogging

Though the title isn’t exactly true, I do feel that if there wasn’t an NHL lockout I would definitely be blogging more! My husband isn’t a crazy Leafs fan or anything but every couple of nights when hockey would be on, I would sit next to him on the couch and tuned it out watch intently while I … Continue reading
