Go Camping and Still Enjoy Healthy Eating

heart_camping-imp

I just returned from what was one of the wettest camping trips ever. It wasn’t a sleep-in-the-van-overnight “oops the tent REALLY leaks” wet like we experienced on our 2012 camping adventure but it did rain for a full 15 hours during the day on this trip. And we were with 7 families and 18 kids. Ice cream and wine got us through. Rain aside, this camping trip got me thinking … Read More →

Angelcare AC1200 At Home

angelcare-ac1200

The screams from the next room can be deafening. Other times, there are no noises at all, and you wonder if your child is already awake. But all smart parents know, you don’t walk in and risk waking up that sleeping baby. Instead, you have another coffee and wait & wonder. At times, this turns to worry. Is the baby still breathing? Is the child stuck in the crib somehow? But, … Read More →

The doggone days of summer have arrived and instead of just laying around a patio we’ve decided to explore places that are nearby to us.  Air travel can get expensive with … Read More →

Diabetic Problems

Diabetes

It’s been 27 years since I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and it’s been a struggle controlling my blood sugars since then. Imagine being a kid that wasn’t allowed to have any kind of sweets. It wasn’t easy even though I was able to eat the diabetic stuff, it just wasn’t the same. I was always told that there would be consequences for cheating on my diet and uncontrolled … Read More →

“More Please!”: SunRype FruitActiv Review

2599_SunRype_FRUITACTIV_Juices_thumbOriginal

We’re not typically a big juice-buying family. So much of what’s on the market is nothing but sugar water with “real fruit” flavour. Either that or it’s way out of our price range. So my kids were thrilled to try out the new SunRype FruitActiv juices. And I was thrilled to serve it to them. I already know that I can trust SunRype products to be made with actual real … Read More →

50 Shades of Grey Trailer

50shades

Ladies, gents…will you be watching this come Valentine’s Day? Admittedly, I did read all the books and was intrigued by all the romance, sex scenes and love between these two. After watching the trailer I am not 100% convinced that these actors can top my own reality of the books though, I really hope I’m wrong because it has been a long time coming and I know A LOT of … Read More →

A Kid’s Passion Like No Other

soccerboys

I wasn’t really into sports as a kid. I was on a lunch recess time Floor Hockey team and I played basketball in grade 5 but other than that, I didn’t care much for it. I didn’t have the passion I see a lot of kids having for sports. I didn’t really think when I had boys (four of them) about how much boys love sports. They REALLY love their … Read More →
