Top 10 Tuesday: 10 Things my Kids Want to do at Disney World

Not that I’m too obsessed about my distant trip to Disney World (it’s four months away) but my contribution to Oh Amanda’s Top 10 Tuesday list Is Disney focused, again. Last week I listed 10 things I have yet to do at Disney but plan on doing this coming trip. But what I want to […]

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Things I’ve Learned from a Sleepover

My daughter just celebrated her eighth birthday by having her first sleepover. Actually it was her first, her friends’ first and our first as parents. Yup, we were all sleepover virgins. So as a first time sleepover parent I learned a few things and what better place to post them than as part of Oh […]

When adults behave like children, Pt II

You may remember my somewhat angry post last month. You know, the post about my daughter the bully. I thought everything had been resolved, as resolved as a situation like that can ever get. I have noticed the mom, my once friend, has been avoiding me at school. Actually I can’t say for sure that […]

AC/DC, Zombies and Racing Cars: A Family Visit to Comicon

Saturday morning and I received a fantastic email; it contained an invitation to Comicon which was happening in the city that very weekend. So after Sunday school we piled everyone into the car and headed down to the Direct Energy Centre. The first thing to catch our eye when we walked in was a large Iron […]

Photoworks Studio. Interactive, easy, and fun.

When my first child was born, I had plans like all first time moms. I looked forward to getting the nursery ready, taking pre-natal classes with my husband, crying from both exhaustion and joy when my little one arrived, holding her for the first time, creating a memory book covering her first year. But unlike […]

Let’s get naked: Feeling comfortable in your own skin

I’m a rather quiet person. I’m more comfortable behind my computer talking to people than being out front.

It’s the same thing […]

Of all the memorable childhood stages there is one I don’t look […]

And so that was 2009

2010 is here and I’m excited but at the same time I can’t help but look back over the past year. I started this blog last Spring because I thought this would be a year of change and I wanted to record it. The year didn’t bring quite the change I was looking for but […]

It’s been a Think Geek Christmas

If you haven’t figured it out by now I’m a little bit of a geek. So it comes as no surprise that some of my geekism has rubbed off on my family. Take this past Christmas for example. Under our tree we had our share of movies and chocolates and toys and clothes, but we […]

And in this corner…

School’s in full swing, the weather is colder and the flu bug seems to be creeping around every corner, time for the flu fighting gloves to come off. Before I had kids I never got sick, okay that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but I certainly didn’t get sick as much as when I had […]
