A Mom Blog Social Network
It's been a crazily long time since I blogged here... and I am feeling guilty. In fact, so guilty I am scared I'll be rejected...
Though please don't - I am nice really!
However, it has been a crazy time too. If I'm honest, probably the worst couple of years of my life. Not that you need to know about those.
And also the best too.
I have now published a novel, and I am really excited. You can follow links to find it if you so wish (it is warm and funny and…Continue

Being a mother is the most challenging, and rewarding, experience of my life. You have taught me what it means to be unconditionally loved, how to unconditionally love another, to want something better for someone else than what I want for myself, and helped me understand who I am in ways I don’t know that I would have ever…Continue

“You might be a little better than average.”
I had asked my dad what he thought of my singing voice and that was his reply: a step above average. I remember this moment vividly, since as a preteen I took it as a cruel insult. How dare he!
I’ve always loved to sing, and being musically inclined, I can indeed carry a tune. But I am not destined to live life defined as “a singer,” and Dad (a musician) knew that.
Did his critique…Continue

Todd Millar, past volunteer President of Hockey Calgary, has written a book entitled, “Moron: the Behind the Scenes Story of Minor Hockey”. As a past Hockey Mom, I’ve witnessed some of the behaviors that he describes. One incident occurred when our boys’ were scheduled to play and we were watching the Div One game that was finishing.

The teacher was letting all of the kids in his classroom play with puzzles and my son was trying very hard to get the puzzle pieces into the right spot. It was fun to watch him play and learn a new skill. I…Continue

Biting is a behavior that many toddlers display at one time or another. It can be something that makes the adults feel frustrated and helpless. There is hope!
Whenever a child is…Continue
