Belated Birthday Party

Belated Birthday Party

This past weekend LittleSis came out from Calgary for a quick weekend visit. We decided to have a small belated birthday party for K. Presents!! The opening of a present is a fascinating process. What do you mean I can’t open this present? Cake!! (Complete with a monster in the woods.) Hmmm. When your head […]

Award Day

Award Day

Over the past week and a bit I’ve been lucky enough to receive three blog awards from some lovely and interesting bloggers. Each of the awards has some rules (mostly to pass the award onto more bloggers) and I intended to pass them on when I had time to contact every one. And then time […]

I Poked a Baby

About 10 minutes ago I did something that I’ve never done before. I did something I absolutely hate. And I am so embarrassed. I touched a baby’s face. Not my baby. Not a relative’s baby. Not a friend’s baby. I touched the face of a baby of someone with whom I have spoken to no […]

I'm Pretty Sure She's Screaming "Bad Mommy!"

I'm Pretty Sure She's Screaming "Bad Mommy!"

Last Friday, the kids and I went to the mall to pick out a birthday gift for K. I forgot that the toy store is located right in the centre hub of the mall and I totally forgot that Santa and his crew would be in attendance. After we picked out K’s gift he made […]

Cheap Toy: Time Waster

Last Friday, I took K and Em to the mall so that K could pick out his own birthday present. It was not my original plan to let him pick out his own gift but things pretty much never go according to my plan. A few days before this I took K with me on […]

Three

Three

My little man turned three today. We didn’t have a big party for him or even a cake (that will have to wait until next week when my younger sister flies in from Calgary for a visit) but K still received a couple of gifts, some cookies, some doughnuts and his first taste of orange […]

Grace in Small Things #2 (Mom's Night Out Edition)

I didn’t keep up my Grace in Small Things like I intended to. I hope to change that. I don’t plan of posting it daily – just when I’m feeling a bit down. I think forcing myself to identify the good in everyday life will help me to not despair in the monotony of my […]

I Blame November

Tonight I had a plan. I was going to read a couple of chapters of Macroeconomics (I will be so happy to see the backside of this course), check in on Twitter, catch up on my blog reading, actually write a post for my blog, and read the rest of my last Sookie Stackhouse paperback. […]

The Amazing Knee-Walking Girl: Wednesday of Few Words

K walked by his first birthday. I assumed Em would follow along on a similar timeline. In fact, I had actually assumed that Em would start walking before the year mark since (I thought) she’d want to keep up with her big brother. Em has had other plans. It’s only this past week that I’ve […]
