  "My kids will never have screen time." Be honest- before we became parents, we told ourself a lot of things. The reality is that life with kids isn't always easy or perfect. It's not as simple as we once imagined. Still- we'd never trade it for anything. The key is finding what works for our own families. As long as everyone is healthy, happy and (relatively) well-adjusted, then who cares about those hard-and-fast rules we once imagined would be part of our lives?  Screen time is part of Read more [...]

Shopkins, Shopkins, Shopkins... If you have a kid between the ages of 4 and 10, I'd say you know exactly what I'm talking about. It seems this collectible toy craze is EVERYWHERE! While, as a mother, I don't completely understand it, I can definitely relate as a former Pogs (remember Pogs?!) addict and Sticker Collector/trader. Collecting and swapping has always been a thing (think baseball cards and Beanie Babies), and it seems Shopkins is the new hot trend, at least for now. A few weeks ago, Read more [...]

Family couch cuddles, car-ride sing-alongs and everything in between. Our best memories as a family of four are being made when we're just together, enjoying and living in the moment. It beats planned excursions, exciting days out and parties. My favourite moments with my husband and little ones are the ones that are most unexpected (and tend to leave us giggling or belly laughing). Music is such an important part of the memories we're making and of the memories I have of my family from when I was Read more [...]

It's been a while since I've done a book review on the blog, but that's mostly because I haven't read anything that I felt strongly enough about to share (good or bad) in a long time. That doesn't mean that I'm not still the same bookworm I always have been! Some things just don't change. Me Before You from Jojo Moyes is one of those books I've had on my list since it came out. For some reason, I've read several of her other books but not this one as yet. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law LOVED Read more [...]

I've said it before, and I'll say it forever: books are sacred and special in our house. Now that she has a little brother to share her Mommy and Daddy with, story time before bed has become an even more special and important time for our daughter. It's the time that we get to cuddle in her big girl bed, snuggled under the covers and have time that's just for US. Yes, we have the classics, new and old, to choose from, but we also love to discover new and hidden gems to add to our repertoire. Little Read more [...]

Hello out there! I know I've told you all before just how much we love Baby/Kids Gourmet in our house, but I'm back to tell you about some awesome new products they have. (Plus, we've added a member to our family since the last time I talked about them!)

This is where Squoosh and Slammers Snacks come in to play! Squoosh Snacks are the only organic Read more [...]
