On Environmentalism

What kills me is the “but we need this and you use that people” Yes, we currently rely on fossil fuels for many things. Yes, there may always be instances where we will need them. There are things that will be harder to change, medical equipment for example, BUT humans are innovative. Why make excuses?…

F Your “Mom Guilt”

Everyday a new article pops into my feed telling me what I should be feeling guilty about. Every. Single. Day. I get how this started. A mom needed to write out her feelings. I’ve been there, I get it. She put it out there so that other moms who were feeling that guilt could feel…

Well.ca Ambassador

When O was tiny I started researching cloth diapers but I didn’t start using them until E was born. The thought of two babies going through disposables at the same time was daunting. All of that waste. All of the money! I had my usual stipulations when I start a search. Can I find a…

Let’s be honest though, I’m pretty busy parenting. I mean, there are so many of them… We’ve actually been busy this Summer considering how painfully hot it’s been.…

Brass Tacks: Chewed Food

Sometimes small humans like the taste of foods but they don’t trust the texture. For example, toddler sized O loved carrot sticks. He loved the flavour BUT he didn’t like how they don’t dissolve once chewed down. He considered those tiny chewed bits a choking hazard. What does anyone do when they fear chocking on…

Need vs Want

*TW/Child Loss The Burlington case is still under investigation so I can’t speculate as to how this boy was left in the car. All I know is that he WAS left, and died from hyperthermia. I don’t want to talk about people who purposefully leave children (or pets for that matter) in hot cars on…

Family Day at the National Air Force Museum

  April is designated as Month Of The Military Child so I thought I’d share an event we attended at the base museum awhile back. For those of you who don’t know, the husband shaped one is a tech in the Canadian Air Force. It’s been about 5 years and so far we’ve moved twice.…
