I remember a few years ago, hearing a lady in a checkout line tell her kid “if you stop crying, I’ll get you a cookie.” Then thinking to myself, how I would never do that with my future children. Fast forward to today where I have two kids that are 3 and under and now […]

Oh, no!

If my kid could trademark a phrase, it would be “oh, no!”  It’s his “you got it, dude,” his “book ‘em, Danno,” his “did I do that?” I understand he got it from somewhere, that he must have heard me say it and repeated it from there, but it has become a cycle that feeds […]

That Unwanted Opinion We All Have Received

“You know what would help your kid?” Annnnnd no.  Let me stop you right there.  Unless you’re a pediatrician, psychologist or one of my close friends, don’t even try it.  Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I don’t want help with issues with my kids.

Bidding adieu to the boobie milk

On my birthday this past year, I was ready to blow out 28 candles and was wishing my family would take my second pregnancy as good news after a rather scary delivery with my first.  What I should have wished for was a minivan or, the best use of my wish, to be a Holstein […]

Temper Tantrums: Why My 3yo Scares the Hell Out of Me

What a beautiful day it is!  You think, “Maybe I should pack up a picnic, put my daughter’s bike in the back of the truck and bring her to the park for a day filled with fun!”  I see your very optimistic. But don’t forget, you have a 3yo whose trigger for going off could […]

What the thrush

Thrush.  “You mean Canada’s national treasure?,” some might say.  No. That’s Rush. “Oh. I know what you’re talking about.  With the hipsh ,” Sean Connery might say.  Nuh-uh. That’s thrust.
