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).

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”

More “Sex Talk” with my 9 year old…..

As most of you should know (as per the pic right up at the top of this page) we have 2 beautiful girls that we’re hopefully raising to be decent young women. It’s not a cup of tea and you know what? I’m the type of mom that has a few goals set ahead of me that I’m praying become a part of my girls every way of thinking and being. Continue reading “More “Sex Talk” with my 9 year old…..”

Just another day in our lives

You know that thing that people call a “creative block”? I think I have had one of those lately – but in a strange way. Why I think it’s strange is because I have so much going on in my head and there’s too many projects to be made and blog posts to be written that I’ve actually over thought my way out of actually writing anything down or making anything. Continue reading “Just another day in our lives”

Preparing to be Moms at 8 & 10 years old

Mothers day has come and gone. The week that preceded the actual day was filled with so much that I honestly felt rather overwhelmed on what I should write about. I didn’t know if I should blurb about everything in one post or rather split it up into little posts and rather have little meaty tidbits over the next few days.

The second option seemed to work a little better for me – then I could go on and on about something and feel like I had to cut anything off prematurely. Continue reading “Preparing to be Moms at 8 & 10 years old”
