P!NK Makes The Most Beautiful Cover Issue And I Have Something To Say About It

When you look at the most recent cover of People Magazine’s Most Beautiful issue I can’t help but notice that it is different then the issues that came before it. It’s evolved, the middle boasts an imperfect accomplished singer Pink along side her adorable children – vastly odd considering the previous ones were adorned by Photoshopped versions of thought of celebrities who stood alone and graced the covers like ornaments to the type set along side them. Pink is mom to her two kids Jameson Moon, 15 months, and Willow Sage, 6½,…

Frothy Bath Bomb DIY

Over the weekend the boys and I experimented a little with our traditional bath bomb recipe and came up with an alternative that was too irresistible not to share. Apparently we’ve gone through a phase whereby each and every bath time experience must be accompanied by a bubbling treat – of-course I am also guilty of loving bath bombs too so I can totally relate to the boys needs when it comes to making bath time fun. The only downfall is that the store-bought versions are often costly and sometimes…

A Fresh Tap Into The Dark Side Of Childhood

If your children are anything like mine then they have already acquired a deep sense of dark humour before the age of 11. In our home, my oldest son loves to read and his most favourite novels of the past 2 years have been a series of thirteen children’s novels by Lemony Snicket, the pen name of American author Daniel Handler. Yes, when he was first introduced to this book series we were a little worried at the subject manner and horror factor of it all but it seems that these…

Bathtime Fun – DIY Kids Clay Soap

Seems slime and mould-able play is all the rage with school-aged children these days and since my children regularly struggle with wanting to take a bath I thought the perfect solution to get them motivated would be combining play with the bath-time struggle.  Who needs bath toys when you have something fun and creative to pass the time – plus clay soap also effectively washes all those hard to reach spots! When looking on the internet for recipes I came across a whole slew of soap-like recipes as well as…

#LilGiftList Monkey Jabber GPS Watch Giveaway!

Truth be told I am a helicopter mom in all aspects of the word – I would watch my children every second of every day if I could. But the truth is, sometimes in life things come up like field trips, play dates and simple park play that can keep our children out of direct reach. This year in particular, my oldest had a class overnight field trip and I held him back because of the simple reason that communication was not allowed. Had he had smart watch like the…

#LilGiftList Little Live Pets My Dream Kitten, Cuddles Giveaway!

When I was little my parents brought home the most adorable white kitten, she was fluffy and perfect just like the Cottonelle commercials circa 1985 featured. I loved that cat so much until I held her…lets just say FUR EVERYWHERE! Her shedding was horrible – she left her mark everywhere she visited and it became a nuisance to everyone who would visit. Imagine eating fur in your meals, wearing it on your clothing and finding it in your bed – gross! BUT she was gorgeous – in fact we tried…

Keep The Kids Happy While Travelling Over The Holidays

  We are a family that travels quite often, both in cars and on planes and the Holidays usually have us doing that more often. Christmas consists of travel to visit relatives 2 hours away, and car rides are usually long and ‘boring’ for my kids aged 8 and 11. To be honest, the travel time seems like it doubles for me too – the constant whining, and questions of when we will get there make 2 hours seem like 8! In fact, 1 in 5 Canadian parents say one of their…
