Global Morning Show.

By Friday, February 5, 2016 0 Permalink 0

Meg and I were on the Global Morning Show today. The idea was we would have a chance to talk about Family Snow Day on February 15th. We did get to that. However, ,Meg and I walked away with a more valuable lesson - no filmsy tops on television.  I never would have thought I ...

Quebec City Trip Prep

By Thursday, February 4, 2016 0 Permalink 0

We are leaving on Sunday for our winter getaway with Expedia Canada, and everyone is extremely excited. We are taking new cars, thanks to Honda. I have a shiny Pilot and Meg gets to go back to her roots, with an Odyssey mini-van. I am beginning to strategize over packing, something I am terrible at. Invariably I either ...

Leigh & Meg: On Their Shortcomings

By Wednesday, February 3, 2016 0 Permalink 0

Yesterday Meg and I set out to record a vlog about some of the challenges the two of us face as parents. It took a different turn. As we were getting our thoughts on the topic organized, Wizz began recording us. He thinks it's funny to record our bullshit. Meg and I are very honest with each other. Whenever we ...

Things to do on Family Day

By Tuesday, February 2, 2016 0 Permalink 1

Family Day is around the corner. For our non-Canadian friends, Family day is a holiday in February that some of our provinces observe.  It's rare that Leigh and I schlep our crew anywhere exciting on this day; usually we hit the tobogganing hill or the pond for some skating. However, this year is shaping up a bit differently. We are participating ...

Fitness Friday: Where to Start?

By Saturday, January 30, 2016 0 Permalink 0

  I have been working out for twenty-five years, which totally freaks me out. I was in grade 10 and started going to a gym which was walking distance from our house. This was at the height of thong bodysuits and Reebok pump hightops. Maybe that's when my aversion for thong underwear began, wearing them OVER your shorts ...

Banana Bread

Banana bread is a personal favourite of mine, I absolutely love it. It would be included in my top 5 favourite baked goods. My kids feel the same. My problem with baking a loaf of banana bread is that I will eat multiple slices and then feel bad about myself. The whole idea of me baking in ...

Does it Have to be Fair?

By Thursday, January 28, 2016 2 Permalink 1

"Mom, that's not fair?" Is it wrong that I will often respond with "So what?" I am trying to raise my kids in an environment that is not always fair. Perhaps that is why I stopped at three; invariably someone gets left out or their opinion discounted. What I mean by an environment that is not always fair is ...

Family Trip – Quebec City

By Tuesday, January 26, 2016 0 Permalink 0

Meg and I are taking the whole gang to Quebec City in February for a winter adventure. That's really a euphemism for shit-show. With eleven of us going (we invited Dubs), I am curious to see what type of "travel synergy" we have. I have done a little research since booking our trip through Expedia Canada. I made the decision to drive to Ottawa and ...

Fitness Friday: Cold-Weather Running

By Friday, January 22, 2016 0 Permalink 0

Meg and I decided it is time for us to start sharing more of our passion for fitness on the blog. The two of us always make time to exercise; some days it is ten minutes at 5 am for me, other days we are lucky to spend an hour working out.  Running has always been something we both enjoy, ...
