So here I am living on the ‘ball’ trying to encourage some baby birthing action. I’ll be 38 weeks on Monday and go to get my cervix stretched. The OBGYN said that it induces labour in 1 out of 7 preggos. Being dilated ahead of time helps those odds. So guess I better just relax […]
I routinely dye my clothes – well not dye them, tint them. There is a difference. Dyeing will change the colour, tinting will deepen the current colour. I haven’t found clothing dye readily available in Canada so I’ve stuck with tinting. I tint clothes that are faded (maybe once a year I dye my blacks, […]
Apparently in Germany Father’s Day is termed Man Day. Makes sense to me. A father is a MAN. Strong, provider, hard working, respectful, doing right by his family. At least that’s what I see in my son’s father. He’s the one will stay awake to drive his family home after a long trip. He stays […]
Hubby and wonderful sis-in-law kicked the prep into high gear these past couple days – crossing things off ‘the list’. Made me get a little anxious to get things done too – like painting the cabinets (a brighter white) – replacing the hardware – cleaning the floors – doing all the laundry possible – cleaning […]

–> Do you have feel like your decorating decisions are ‘safe’ ? You buy something ‘neutral’ or ‘timeless’ but then feel like you end up with a bland room? Meanwhile you are looking at other rooms in envy cause you think they are so much more awesome? I do! Granted I’ve always opted for cheap […]
During the prenatal classes the nurse asked ‘Will you have anyone else in the delivery room with you two?’. My husband and I never talked about this but knew we had the same answer and responded in unison ‘No’.Fast forward to going into labour and being admitted to the hospital. The family and friends were […]
The Final Product You know how the first pancake sticks to the pan or burns or takes forever to cook and you get a mucky mess? Unless you are a seasoned pro at pan temperatures and flipping (which I expect to be in the next 5-10 years) you are usually left with a barely edible […]
My kid is sick. Since I’m living in a sleepless daze of laundry, dishes and bleach solutions I thought this was a good time for me to share some info on sanitizing with other mamas out there . . . . . . . Should I Sanitize MY Kids’ Toys? Yup, probably. It’s up […]
