In my house, back to school is an exciting time for everyone. The kids can’t wait to see their friends and I love the fact that we can get back to a regular routine.  This time of year also...
  No one tells you that you will lose yourself after having a baby. NO ONE. What they will tell you is: how wonderful it is, how in love they are with their children and how your intuition takes over and...
When I gave birth to my son, everyone wished us, “Congratulations!” and then followed up with, “That’s the end of traveling for you!” My husband and I disagreed. As two world travelers, we were definitely going to continue traveling....
As someone who grew up in a warm climate, the Canadian winters are harsh, to say the least. Most people know how cold Canadian winters are, and so when summer comes around people (and when I say ‘people’ I...
  Before I gave birth to my son, I ran almost every day. I ran in the bitter cold. I ran under the scorching sun. I rose at the crack of dawn to run before work. And in college, I...
  Summer is almost upon us and that means SUMMER VACATION! I remember how those words were music to my ears. How I would count down the days until I was free from school and could do whatever I wanted....
Since becoming a mother, I suddenly understand my own mother so much better. How it took ingenuity and out-of-the-box thinking to become a successful work-at-home parent. How confusing it must have been for her to cheer on my growing...
Spring is literally the awakening of the people because we have been buried in snow and cold for nearly 6 months.  It’s always funny to me how the minute the temperature goes above zero so many people start to...

I have been a mom for 5.5 years. And boy has it been a journey! Only now that my boys (aka: nuclear energy bombs) are 5 and 3, I can sit, reflect, think, go to the bathroom in peace...
Love to read? So do I. I absolutely love to escape to foreign settings, to delight in colorful language, to encounter new ideas, and to hungrily flip through pages — all without leaving my spot on the couch. But as...
If you think that a first-year birthday party is all about your young toddler — think again. Your baby isn’t excited about the five-layer, chocolate swirl cake. He doesn’t realize that you spent hours searching for elephant balloons. And...
Making new mom friends can feel sort of like asking someone out on a date. It can be awkward, and, if you, like me, haven’t played the field in a while, you’ll feel pretty rusty. I’ve been married for...
One of the most frustrating things about parenting is trying to get your kids to listen to what you’re saying. Then probably the second most frustrating thing is actually getting them to do what you’re asking them to. In...
Having the kids at home for an extended period of time is never a good idea…especially in winter when it is freezing outside and snow covers the ground. I have two boys who have so much energy that we have...
Back to school, back to school, back to school…….those words are like a beautiful song that is sang in my ears, and for many parents around the world. I love summer, I really do, and we had some really amazing...
