I feel discouraged, I feel down. Today I got impatient. In order for me to make this transition to be a stay at home Mom there are alot of changes that we have to make....mainly financially, I guess. We have to get to the point where I can afford to stay home. It's depressing at times. When I know things are going to change, I want change then, but I know that good things come to those who wait.
I talked to my husband about it and he pointed out all of the wonderful changes we've… Continue

Mama: B, what was your favorite thing about today?
B: Watching the seals.
Mama: What were the seals doing?
B: Just sitting there.
Mama: What else were they doing?
B: They were pushing each other off the rock because they didn't want to share.
They were barking too. Like this, aar aar aar.
Mama: What else did you…

The first day of September is upon us. For many people, September brings about new starts. A fresh school year for the kids, new fall line ups on TV and new seasons for old favourites and extra curricular activities start back up.
Some of you may know that I volunteer with Girl Guides… Continue

Before I begin my small rant, let me first say that Piper is a good sleeper at night. She sleeps from 7-7 consistently and for that I am truly thankful.
BUT, this not napping during the day is brutal! She's 10 months old. She needs a nap, if not 2. Now, I know she doesn't sleep well anywhere except her own bed and that's fine. It makes me a slave to the nap; but, I'm okay… Continue

I love the Fall! I love the colours, the smells, the cooler weather. But most of all, I love the Fall harvests. Apples, Pears, Squash, Pumpkins, mmmm.
The kids and I went apple and pear picking on Friday morning. While it's still early in the season for apples, one of my favourite varieties, Gingergold, were ready. We picked a bag of the apples and a bag of Bartlett pears.… Continue

“Your child has a 16p11.2 duplication, PDD_NOS, and will most likely be intellectually disabled.” I heard these words in February of this year. I don’t think I could have felt worse at that moment. I felt alone as if I were on a desserted island, like no one in the world would understand what we were going through. Continue

What if someone said that there was a seminar or book that was going to help you be a better mom and it required 15 minutes to an hour a day? Would you go? Would you take an afternoon or an evening to learn what you needed to be a better mom? Most of us would because we want the best for our children.
This next question is a little harder. Do you take some time every day to exercise, read, or do something… Continue

Wow who would have thought that are kids would be able to write on walls with no worries to us Parents. I wish they had this back in the day when I was growing up. My 2 little girls LOVE to write on walls and chairs and tables and well lets face it anything and everything they can! Creative for them and no fun for Mom because I have to clean it up, or figure out a way to get the Black Permanent Marker off the White… Continue

I’d forgotten how much easier a summer without a child in diapers can be. I imagine this also applies to diaper wearing adults, as well. Not trying to deny any one particular groups’ hardships here, I just don’t know any diaper wearing adults. As far as I know, my friends and family all enjoy control of their bladders and colons. And chances are when one of them becomes incontinent, they’ll update their Facebook profile status to...… Continue

I'm not generally one to whine and complain but I'm curious ... if someone comments on your blog, isn't it considered polite to visit their blog and comment on something that they've written? We all love getting
comments ... it's definitely a ray of sunshine in my day when someone
takes the time to visit my site and leave a comment.
I've been visiting a lot of other blog sites lately and I've always left a comment that I think is…
