After a brief hiatus, due to Life-us-Interruptus, I am back at the blog. So much has happened since my last post, but rather than play catch up, I think I’ll just start from…how about right now (with a few references to the past 10 months)? Seems like as good a place as any. You know… Continue reading We’re back!
At the Pool Without Marco or Polo
Just spent a week in Mexico. This is no surprise to most of you but anyone who has kids knows how great it is to travel...without them! I love them dearly but going away with hubby to celebrate our 25th (yes, again) was AMAZING! Of course we didn't feel right about going somewhere without our… Continue reading At the Pool Without Marco or Polo
Back to the Big Smoke
A few days ago, Mind (my eldest) and I went for a walkabout in our old haunt, downtown Toronto. Driving in has become a nightmare and parking a horror show, so we took the train, which was so convenient and relaxing and dropped us right in the thick of the city. It's been a while… Continue reading Back to the Big Smoke
Never Thought I’d be “That” Mom
I used to shake my head at parents who'd drive endless hours for a kids' sporting event, but last weekend I became "that" mom.

Nine hours and one time zone later,… Continue reading Never Thought I’d be “That” Mom

Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Happy
Who wouldn't be happy to receive an anniversary card like this one? Thanks to Heart (my hubby). Do you ever come across one of those people who is so damned happy because everything is going so well that you want to just say "I get it! Things are good. Now, shut up already while I… Continue reading Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Happy
It’s a Big Day!
Good morning! Today is a big day because today the online parenting magazine Mamalode is publishing my article, Why I Don't Buy Into Mother's Day. It's a fun, although perhaps controversial article, that I'd love for you to read and comment on if good humour (or ire) strikes you. Find it here: http://mamalode.com/
Hello Everyone! Ace and I would like to welcome you to our very first post. Ace is a lap cat who makes it difficult for me to write, but he's decent company, especially when he gives me this frontal view, which is his best side. Some days I'm not so lucky. Ignoring my cluttered desk,… Continue reading Day One!
