  "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 [...]

All You Need is Love – Win 3 Months of Netflix!

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 [...]

Don’t Walk Away From Me…

The last week of April was a BIG week in our house. My son, just shy of being 19 months old, finally got up on his two feet and walked. An early crawler, like his sister, he's been on the move since he was 7 months old. Also like his sister, he started pulling up to standing long before his first birthday but decided that walking just wasn't for him. We've been trying to encourage him to stand and walk- using a walker or holding our hands. We did everything we could think of to get him to just Read more [...]

Just a quick shout out to Ryder and the gang at the Look Out... The last month of our lives has been absolutely B-A-N-A-N-A-S: kids getting sick one after another, visits from out of town family, trips to the country to visit family, a 24-hour roadtrip to Maine, tax season for my accountant hubby....oh, and Hubby also happens to be running for a position on our City Council. That's right- an election smack dab in the middle of tax season means that the month of March was even more upside down 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!) Now, I have not just one, but TWO picky eaters who don't necessarily eat all of the vegetables that I'd like for them to (or that they should). This is where Squoosh and Slammers Snacks come in to play! Squoosh Snacks are the only organic Read more [...]

I know I say it all the time, but Netflix has such an incredible selection of fun, family-friendly titles. This fall, they've REALLY outdone themselves with amazing new movies and programs to choose from. I love cuddling up on the couch with my daughter on a cool, rainy afternoon and watching something we can BOTH enjoy. She's still under 4, so often times what I would love to watch with her is still over her head or doesn't interest her, and what she wants to watch makes me want to scream... I Read more [...]

It's back-to-school time once again. Fortunately for us, our daycare facility doesn't close for the summer, but that doesn't mean that back-to-school doesn't have any significance in our household. Our little girl moved up to the 4 year old class this week (I don't understand where time has gone)!   This little munchkin has learned how to write the letters in her name (mostly), and now we are working hard on letter recognition. We've got tons of books in our house that we love to read, Read more [...]

The Best Baby Food: Review & Giveaway

Making homemade food for my babies is something that is very important to me. I like knowing exactly what is being put into their little bodies as I introduce "solids". There will be plenty of time for quick, processed meals and junk food later in life. For the earliest meals, however, I like to feel like I have some control, and I've made making my own baby food a priority. Fortunately there are some really amazing resources out there to help in the process of preparing and coming up with new Read more [...]
