The Challeng of Parenting a 4 Year Old

Parenting a 4 Year Old

I cannot hold it in any longer: I’m having really trying times with my 4-year-old son Braden right now, and the more I talk about it with other parents, I’m thinking it’s more the challenges that the age of 4 brings, rather than Braden himself. I find it really hard to cope with his constant need to talk. I know not all 4-year-olds are as talkative as Braden is, but … Read More →

flower box and easter 107

It is finally Spring in Toronto (garden time) and the snow has finally all melted and what do I notice in the back of my backyard? 5 pieces of lumber that were left over from our deck project last summer.

Spring into action! Finding myself getting into a stagnant state of doing the same thing day in and day out, (of course being not much of anything) watching TV, eating, sleeping and repeating it was definitely time for some change. I’ve recently decided to take up running/walking again, I say both as you don’t need to push things if you’re just starting and even if you’re a seasoned runner.  Sometimes, … Read More →

Are Cloth Diapers For You?

aretheyforyou

Almost 3 years ago now we made the switch to Cloth Diapers. I never thought I’d be one to use them because every time I heard someone talk about Cloth Diapers  I assumed pins and rubber pants… and to be honest, those never were my thing, ever (and yes! I did try them) Do you think cloth diapers seem like something you’d love to try? Sometimes the initial cost upfront … Read More →

SchoolKidz

Oh back to school, how I dread you! More than just having to give up my sweet kiddos for hours every day, I also dread the whole back to school process of each new school year.

Let me explain, according to a USA Today article this woman became pregnant with twins after undergoing fertility treatments.

A Mother’s Confession
