No more browning apples for lunch.

This is about a year or so too late for my gang, although I still cut up their apples after school because they prefer it that way and also because they do get wiggly teeth that make it hard to bite into apples.

But I cannot be alone when I say; I have no idea how many apples I have cut up and continue to cut up, for children, in my lifetime! They’ve come around to eating the peel *yes*.  I used to have to core, peel and slice 10 apples, easily a day for my family!  Continue reading

Everythings better with Bacon

Bacon, bacon taco, taco, breakfast, eggs, omelette, bacon shell,

I love helping my friends.

I found this little gem in our youngest sons school bag yesterday. Our children are in French emmersion in a small rural school. The teachers are fantastic and surprise us parents with art work and projects from precious ( autocorrected word but it fits so nicely I will leave it there! ) previous was what I meant to say, years.

I love to help my friends

Where would you sit? How to Let Go and Live Life In the Front Row

live, life, laugh, fun, exciting, laughter, excitement, rides, women,


Where are you seated on this roller coaster ride known as life?
Do you often throw your hands up and squeal and live life to the fullest?


Or do you complacently sit around, with out much outward expression?  Do you hold yourself back from taking a moment to enjoy the little things in life?  Are you closed with your emotions?  Are you more reserved?

If you prefer the back row, why not take a ride in the front seat for a change? 

Give it a go! 

You won’t regret it, I promise. 


If you want to but aren’t quite sure how to let go keep an eye out for my How to Let Go and Live Life In the Front Row Blog series soon to Premiere.

Where ever you may decide to sit, we’re all together on this ride, called life. 

Please leave a comment in the comment section of this post so I can keep you updated to the first segment of this series.

Pancake Hair

So Eden, my daughter, wants to cut her hair to her shoulders. While we were on a walk I asked her if she was sure and why she wanted to cut her hair and she simply said ” because then when I turn to talk to someone when I’m eating pancakes, my hair won’t get all sticky and syrupy from touching my plate.” 8 year old logic at its finest.

What are some funny and humorous things that your kids have said!?

Open When…

Relationships and communication with our young people, no matter the stage of growth they are in, can at times seem daunting and confusing.

One moment our children want our love, cuddles, encouragement and support and the next it seems that no matter how we try to approach our children they will have nothing to do with it or us.

Just when you think you’ve mastered the steps of their new and complicated dance the music suddenly changes and you are left feeling left footed, unprepared and clumsy all over again.
