Get Comfy Cozy With A Giant Tiger Movie Night! #LilGiftList

We are a few weeks away from the big celebration of Christmas, and the hustle and bustle is about to begin (if it hasn’t already started). All I can think about is getting cozy and sitting around a big ol’ tree while watching holiday movies and sipping on hot chocolate – but sadly a night like this takes a little planning for it to actually happen. Since Giant Tiger is Canada’s comfy cozy Christmas store, it makes for a one stop shop to make that perfect movie night take place…

Sneak Peek At Our Halloween Costumes & Some Fun DIY Costume Ideas #StreamTeam

_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It’s no secret that I love Halloween – luckily my family does too because we start brainstorming as soon as one year is done and work our way to the next year using nothing but pure imagination. Inspired by themes and movies of course, we really try to include the whole family (sometimes the dog too) in our overall Halloween look for the season. This year, we will be dressing up as the crew from Alice In Wonderland and I am super-excited to give you a sneak peek…

Family Movie Night Fun With BINGO! #StreamTeam

_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I don’t know about you, but when it comes to watching a movie together as a family we are often interrupted by questions, trips to the bathroom and endless snack attacks. Seems that on matter what we do, when it is finally time to settle and enjoy a film, the kids are always too distracted to watch. At our house, Fridays are always secluded for popcorn, munchies and family-favorites. We make up our family room with blankets, lights and sometimes tents to set the mood and settle down…

Sweatin’ The Canadian Heat With Netflix #StreamTeam

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ Can we say hot? This summer has proven to be a scorcher! Since my kiddos and I are not fans of the heat unless lounging pool side, we have been watching a lot of the old tube lately. That means, mama gets to watch her Netflix on the good ol’ipad while the kids enjoy it on the big screen. Shhhh….they don’t know that I watch a completely different show/movie then they do. I simply put those earbuds in and clean the kitchen while catching up on my much…

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…

Calming The Storm: Getting Siblings To Agree

Like most families, raising children who are very close in age can have its challenges. My children are 2 years apart and up until this point, we have been able to agree on most things….that was until my oldest (9) became a raging Mr Bossy Pants and my youngest (7) decided that whining all day makes for melody that would make anyone cringe. Most mornings are spent arguing over what to wear, how to wear it, whether or not breakfast is good enough to eat, whining and screaming – all…

Building Memories One Brick At A Time #StreamTeam

Let’s face it, toys will come and go but Lego will forever be a part of the memories and building of tiny little inspired souls until the end of time. As a child, Lego was a huge part of my playtime, I can still remember spending endless hours building and imagining far off places while in my own little Lego world. It’s no wonder that one of the first toy purchases I made for my children was also a Lego set – large ones at first and now teeny tiny…
