Supermom? No. Sucker? Yes.

I am such a sucker.

I have been disillusioned and entranced by the lure of letting my sweet, precious boy share my bed.

I sit here now. Exhausted. With a sore neck. And a strong desire for naptime to last at least six hours today.

He is so cute.

How could I resist?

My husband is out of town. Parker was sick for a couple of days with a stomach bug. I felt sorry for him. I wanted extra cuddles. I asked him… Continue

Mommy bloggers rule the world, but we already knew that.

It’s not surprising to me since I work in marketing that part of the job means dealing with clients to identify who their customers are and then how to reach out to them.

But even I find it surprising when I read quotes about mommy bloggers that call them an “emergent phenomenon” or they talk…

Hockey – Sport or Insanity?

Hockey is a great North American tradition and our family heads off to the arena on a regular basis to watch our kids try to get a puck in a net. Daddy-o even builds an ice rink in the backyard every winter so they can play among themselves and with neighbourhood kids. My 10-year-old son was keen to play through summer and a few weeks ago his team was in the championship game. It was a summer house league 3-on-3 team so hardly a highly competitive…

Proud of the Pee!

My boy is starting to use the potty to go pee-pee. He is so proud. He should be.

He is quick too! He sits down, pees almost instantly, stands up, points down at the pee in the potty, and exclaims, “OOK!” And, of course, a big smile.

Everytime, it reminds me of an illustration from a Judy Blume book, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. There is a birthday party, and the little girl is so proud that she can “make tinkles.” She drops trow… Continue

Ovarian Cancer: Educate Yourself on this Silent Killer

By Kara Sibilia

Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related death among women in the United States, and is responsible for three percent of all cancers in women. It is called a "silent killer" because the symptoms are usually vague or nonexistent, and isn't caught until it has spread to other areas of the body.

President Barack Obama, whose mother succumbed to the disease, recently declared September as National Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. In… Continue

Motherhood is really Guilt 101

I suffer from guilt. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m Catholic and Jewish which happen to be 2 religions that corner the market on guilt or if it’s because I’m a mother. Motherhood is a profession that manages to provide me with more reasons to feel guilty than I can count.

But every once in a…
