How my father's hard words, and being bullied, made me an entrepreneur!

HISTORY DOESN’T DEFINE YOU. YOUR CHOICES DOES

 Imagine that you stand on the edge of a platform at the swimming pool... Blindfolded!

You have no idea how high up the platform is, if it is the 1-meter, 5-meter or the 10-meter platform. You have no idea if there is water in…

Find Eldercare that Speaks Your Language

Recent demographic numbers have revealed that in Canada, approximately 29% of seniors (aged 65-84) were not born in Canada, considerably higher than the national average among non-seniors at 17%. While many came here earlier in life to find work and begin their families, others immigrated to Canada later on, often in order to be with children and grandchildren. As these seniors reach an age when they need assistance due to conditions such as dementia, arthritis, or visual impairment, it can…

What's Up Wednesday

I’ve decided to try something new.  This will be a way for me to talk about my favorite and least favorite things at the end of every month.  I’ll share a recipe, give a review, and discuss what I am most looking forward to in the next month.

Favorites of July

Why I Look Forward to Baby Number Two

6 Things I Miss (3).jpg

Once you’ve had your first child, the second baby conversation starts to happen… often.

You think about timing, age difference, and things like “is our home big enough?” or “can we really handle two kids?”

But let’s be honest: now that the hard part is over, you just wonder how in the world you can go through the first six months all over again (lack of sleep and raw nipples especially), but, at the same time, you don’t think it’s humanly…

Letter to My Clingy, Cranky, Teething Child

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 9.28.24 PM

knew I shouldn’t have gotten used to the great night sleep, perfect, clockwork naps, and how amazing you were doing with independent play the past few months… I knew that.

But I did… I sort of took it all for granted. That’s how well you were doing!

Until, of course, that nasty molar popped in a few months early.

This week has been rough on Mommy, you know. Between your ravenous appetite (most days you almost eat…

Why I Wasn’t Ready To Be a Mom

We were out in New York City with friends when we decided we were ready.A packed bar downtown, the kind of place you forget. We’d both had way too many nights like this one: too many watered down vodka sodas, nights spent shoving through the crowd, competing for the bartender’s attention.

This wasn’t the scene for us anymore, it was easy to see.

I don’t remember…

I love to host dinner parties, but I really don’t like doing all the work. My husband is this huge foodie. I make a gourmet meal almost every day.

So over my many years of entertaining…

Teething Essentials

My little man is four months old already. How the heck is that possible? I swear last month was February. We can't possibly be nearing the end of June right now, can we?! I've learned a lot the last four months about my little guy. He is quite a bit fussier than his big sister. He does NOT like his carseat. He's not crazy about the swing. He is chubby and pudgy in all the right places. He loves to be held...all the time. I call him my little hot tamale because he puts off…

A letter to the Struggling Mom

 

  Being a woman, the title of this post alone is a very hard thing to admit to. Admitting that we struggle causes us to feel that we aren’t good enough or that we’ve failed in some form. But, I find it an appropriate time to be bold and reveal some of the thoughts I face on being…

A Standard of Grace

This is a really difficult time to raise children.

We are surrounded by information, but that information tends to present a lot of problems (what not to eat, what not to buy, new epidemics to worry about) yet rarely offers up solutions.

Eating During Labor | Is it okay to eat during labor? New episode of BLABBERMOM |

Did your hospital or midwife allow eating during labor? Most of us MomCavers weren’t allowed to eat once we arrived at the hospital. The reasoning behind this (barbaric, in our opinion) practice is that in an emergency, general anesthesia may be used and any food eaten could aspirate into the lungs. While this may be a concern in very rare cases, most laboring moms are doing the most physically demanding work of their lives and could use some sustenance.

Last fall,…
