Full Mobile Coverage While Living In The ‘Burbs’ -TELUS Rocks! {Giveaway}

I was first introduced to TELUS mobile when I was a teenager, I remember buying into the brand because of its fresh appearance, snazzy ads and really good prices. Who would have known that after years of service with other mobile networks I would become a TELUS customer once again – just under different terms. Now somewhat grown-up I stand on the other side of the fence when I say that the most important thing to me when it comes to cell phone usage is the ability to stay connected….

For mature audiences, and some younger ones too- Life 101 with Netflix!

For mature audiences, and some younger ones too- Life 101 with Netflix!

My husband and I like to think that we are creating a very open family when it comes to social issues in our home. We talk freely, discuss and make sure to keep the lines of communication open with our children – this sometimes comes at a cost. A lot of parents and family around us seem to think that sometimes a little less information is good for our children – but we beg to differ. So far, with honesty all we have seen is gratitude and tiny humans doing…

Pokemon Go Is Taking Over The World – Literally!

Pokemon Go Is Taking Over The World – Literally!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ Admittedly, I love a unique baby name – in fact my two munchkins were inspired by the names of Greek Gods with an added twist. Yes, I too hopped on the baby bandwagon when searching high and low for a different name for our child…but POKEMON? Really? At first I couldn’t believe that people would actually consider tiny little creatures for names of their tiny little bundles but it is true – people desperate for unique names for their children all over the world are getting inspired by the…

Under Fire: Victoria Beckham Kisses 5yr Old On The LIPS!

Under Fire: Victoria Beckham Kisses 5yr Old On The LIPS!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ When the internet takes something so innocent and makes it something totally not worth my time, I get angry. Take this adorable photo posted by Victoria Beckham of her daughter smooching her mama for example. WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT? Like most internet obsessed parents, Beckham shared her daughter’s 5th birthday on Instagram, alongside the caption: “Happy birthday baby girl. We all love you so much. Kisses from mummy.” In my family almost everyone kisses on the lips, without hesitation or the thought that perhaps our children will be targets…

Summer Is Here – Why Is Mommy Happy?

Summer Is Here – Why Is Mommy Happy?

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ While parents are cringing at the fact that they will have their children home for a whole 2 months without a break, I am relishing in the fact that I have my two little men home with me for the entire SUMMER! Don’t get me wrong, they are not perfect and most days start with loud obnoxious sounds, arguing and crack of dawn wake ups but I will take these annoyances any day as opposed to the frantic shuffle of a school morning. School mornings are filled with anxiety,…

Jana Kramer Feeds Her Child The Unthinkable!

Jana Kramer Feeds Her Child The Unthinkable!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ – – Recently, the 32-year-old actress, Jana Kramer hit the supermarket to purchase some baby food for her adorable daughter, and to everyone on social media’s dismay – it was jarred organic food NOT homemade from scratch. Can you imagine the horror? As a mom of two children who were fed exclusively breast milk and homemade baby food I am surprised that this is such a big deal in the social realm. Yes, to me natural foods were the healthiest, simplest and most ideal option for our family –…

Kick-starting Dialogue With Your Kids And Netflix!

Kick-starting Dialogue With Your Kids And Netflix!

Raising children can sometimes be overwhelming and most of the time they hit you when you are down with a question or position that you are not ready to answer. That’s why I am thrilled that Netflix has made kick-starting dialogue with your kids easy, because we as parents are not always prepared – let’s face it we mostly are not EVER prepared for those hormonal little bodies and the endless gush of intrigue they posess! From sibling arguments, to peer pressure and body image, Netflix has parents covered! Check…

Kids: Too Old to See Me Naked? Heck NO!

Kids: Too Old to See Me Naked? Heck NO!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________     A couple of days ago I came across a post in a mommy group that has been on my mind ever since, it was a simple question about what age little boys should stop ‘seeing’ their mothers naked. Got me thinking, not because the question was relevant- because to me it really isn’t, but because I cannot believe that in this day and age we are actually harping on issues like this. Let me start off by saying that everyone has the right to their own…

A Look Through His Eyes.

A Look Through His Eyes.

  Ever sit and wonder what goes on behind your child’s eyes? I mean, ever try to visualize the world that surrounds you through their simple, inquisitive nature that is life?     I had a vision, and it’s beautiful. While walking Cookie to school the other day, he became intrigued by the ‘wishes’ that covered his school lawn. He’s seen them before, but today was different. The sky was dark and the clouds set off a cool color to the earth below, and cookie giggled as we walked. He…

Our Horrifyingly Beautiful World.

Our Horrifyingly Beautiful World.

I am a mama that worries…A LOT. I worry that my children will go out into this world that is not safe anymore, I worry about how they will adapt to a harsh reality that is today. I worry that they will be too ‘soft’ to mesh well with others, and I worry that they will never ever get to see all the beauty that truly is around them. Reality sucks. In light of the past events that have happened both last week and yesterday’s bombings, restoring faith in humanity…
