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 [...]

We have a new hands-down winner for FAVOURITE TOY OF ALL TIME in our house, and it's cute as can be... It's the Little Live Pets Lil' Mouse. Rarely does my daughter sit for longer than 5 minutes with any given toy (unless it's a painting toy), but this mouse has her absolutely captivated and begging for more. Honestly: the day after I brought it home, she woke up in the morning and went straight to her new Lil' Mouse without even saying good morning to anyone! She's fascinated by her "Mouse-y".

Anyone who knows me and anyone who has ever read my blog knows just how special books are to me. They always have been. They always will be.

I absolutely LOVE when my daughter comes running to me with one of her many many books and asks, "Mommy, can you read this to me?". I will generally drop whatever Read more [...]

Growing up, I was the biggest closeted Barbie lover ever to walk the earth. I was a tomboy- I played sports, shopped in the boys' department, wore baggy clothes, backwards hats, loved building and playing video games with my brothers and my cousin. However, if ever I was alone playing in my room, you can bet that you would find me in the kitty corner behind my bed, or in my closet with the door shut, playing with my Barbies! I absolutely loved my Barbies- I lived for dressing them up and creating Read more [...]
