2 things I need to be – to my teenager

Over the last few days, I’ve just had the awesome opportunity to interact with various age groups of young people. Not in major ways, but in simple little things like driving them from A to B and just having them pass through our home and observing them at various events and chatting.

Today, I’m just Sad….

I don’t know why but today I just woke up feeling sad. Nothing traumatic has happened to me exactly but it’s been a day of trying to process through why I’m feeling this way. I don’t like to feel sad, because it’s a hard emotion to wade through. Continue reading “Today, I’m just Sad….”

Why am I blogging? What do I have to offer?

I’ve spent the last few weeks, constantly staring at my computer and wondering what thoughts I want to put down on my little blog. A blank screen can become quite intimidating and switching over to Netflix, is just so much easier – right? I’m not doing this for any monetary gain and it isn’t my work – so why should I bother – right? Continue reading “Why am I blogging? What do I have to offer?”

Youth Day + Father’s Day = Stressed out!

Youth day and Father’s day came and went without a moment to actually breathe in and take in the moments.

Our youth day was filled with my oldest having a gymnastics competition. I spent the hours leading up to it, making her a leotard. (I can hear you saying, “you’re nuts!” – so did a lot of other mommies) I’m the type of person that when there’s money to be saved – I’m going to save it! I’ve spent the last few months trying to master the art of making leotards for my girls. The reason being, that when bought off the rack, those puppies are EXPENSIVE!!! It’s like buying a nike shoe for a 6 year old – who is more than likely going to blow through the thing in like 2 months…… this is my exact sentiment towards leotards.

Our 10yr old Speaking up to an Adult

I know it’s Thursday, but I’ve been really wanting to share this part of our week with you ever since it happened. It’s one of those that has Tim and I sitting back and really glowing with pride over our daughter. Yup, it’s one of those brag moments again. Similar to the one Iraina had last year.

This time it involved Aislyn, our 10 year old daughter. Continue reading “Our 10yr old Speaking up to an Adult”

3 Ways I Honour my Children Online

Over the last few months, I’ve really been stumped with this whole “protecting your kids” online kind of vibe. It’s so scary to think there’s all of these sad, sick people out there that prey on innocent little people. I hate that I can’t just “take a pic” of my kids and freely share it with the world without thinking about how much of their body are they showing and who is in the pic with them (so that no one can photoshop themselves into or out of the pic). Continue reading “3 Ways I Honour my Children Online”

Meet “Our Special Story” friends – having friends with a special needs child

It’s funny how often the first thing I want to do as a parent is whine a little about my kids and how tired I am after a rough night or whatever the case may be. It’s weird really, because honestly which parent isn’t having some sort of a hard time. Then, just when you think that having all three of your kids smothered in chicken pox for a week is hard work (with a 10 month old teething with a runny stomach-it was hectic guys!) then you meet people like our wonderful friends Josh and Amberley Klinkenberg. Dude’s!! Continue reading “Meet “Our Special Story” friends – having friends with a special needs child”
