Everyone around me seems to be getting pregnant. I’ve joked that there must be something in the water, but my generation seems to be settling down now, starting their families and building a nest. The photos on Facebook and countless baby bumps, combined with my eldest daughter’s 9th birthday yesterday (whaaaat?!) have had me thinking back to my own pregnancies. My first pregnancy was honestly the most special. I was becoming a mother for the first time, everything was new and unknown. Scary yet terribly exciting. When we found out I was pregnant, my husband and I broke into happy […] Continue reading →

Alphabet Photography Let Them Be

First off, I love the name of this collection! It’s so fitting and so perfect especially when you’re dealing with children as your subject. Celebrity Photographer Jennifer Blakeley recently released her highly anticipated photography collection this week titled “Let Them Be” artistically depicting young children laughing, being silly, and exhibiting genuine emotion. The collection comes as a response to Blakeley’s frustration in observing society, through the use of social media pressuring parents to push their children to be better, do more, act older and just grow up too quickly. “Sometimes, we just need to let kids be kids. Let them […] Continue reading →

The innocence and purity of a child is one of the most beautiful things. It’s something that many adults can learn from. I saw something today that warmed my heart and put a smile on my face.  An Italian media company called Ciaopeople Media Group put together a video showcasing the results of a certain social experiment. They interviewed four boys between 7 and 11 years of age and introduced them to a girl called Martina.  The boys were asked to caress Martina, make a funny face and then to slap her – hard. Their reactions and responses are just…well you’ll have to […] Continue reading →

ski school

Well, it’s snowing here today (I KNOW!) so I thought I’d share some positive news about the ski season. Everyone likes free! The Canadian Ski Council (CSC) is offering their CSC’s Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass again for their 18th season. The Grade 4 & 5 SnowPass is an unbeatable offer, providing 9 and 10 year old children with three lift passes at each of the 150+ ski areas, nationwide, for just $29.95. The SnowPass provides children in grades 4 and 5 (born in 2004 or 2005) with three lift tickets at each participating ski area across Canada, allowing them […] Continue reading →


The funniest thing happened to me and made me realize just how small this world really is. While scrolling through my favourite Instagram account of all time Rachel Brathen, the infamous@Yoga_Girl, I somehow put two and two together and realized that her mother was the founder of Tröstisar, a Swedish company that makes Cuddly Bandages, a product that I was first introduced to at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas last year. It’s so strange how two worlds collide when you least expect it! In addition to my love for children’s products, I share my passion for health and […] Continue reading →


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of dudley for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Have you checked off your back-to-school checklist? I still have a couple of items left on mine! I don't know why I leave everything to the last minute. Call it a back-to-school tradition for Canadian students  if you will. This year, I learned about a company that I was not familiar with. dudley® has expanded their current line of stylish school accessories with the introduction of its Load N lock Pencil Pod™ and The FULLY LOADED™ Lunch. As we all know, […] Continue reading →

I still remember the first time I bathed my babies. Their tiny little bodies touching the water for the first time, splashing their little hands in the sink as I tried to wash their slippery arms and legs.  Oh, how I miss those days! My son is on his way to washing himself now! Learning to bathe your new baby can be a little scary – there’s a lot to juggle and of course you want to keep your little one safe. But as long you’re properly prepared, bath time can be a great bonding experience and a whole lot of fun! Disney […] Continue reading →
