Ten Thought Tuesday: March 19th 2019

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all doing well.  Here's what's on my mind today. I think Adrien is teething...again 😦  He's been pretty cranky the past few days, has started biting again while nursing and isn't sleeping as well as usual.  Poor little guy, I hate seeing him like this. I just took a… Continue reading Ten Thought Tuesday: March 19th 2019

Potty Training? Here’s What to Expect!

As you all know, I have four children.  Being that Charles is 6, Amélie is 4, Elliot is 2 and Adrien is 7 months old, the past 6 years of my life have been filled with diapers, tantrums and potty training. Potty training...urgh...one of my least favourite parts of raising small humans.  Currently, we're in… Continue reading Potty Training? Here’s What to Expect!

Lunchpiration (March 16th 2019)

Hello everyone! Here's my weekly "lunchpiration" post in which I share what I packed for my kindergartener's lunch for the previous week.  As a reminder, the lunches have to: include a snack (school requirement) be peanut-free (school requirement) not require a microwave (school requirement) be diverse (Charles' requirement) not contain any disposable wrappers (in line… Continue reading Lunchpiration (March 16th 2019)

How Do You Reset Your Mind?

Yesterday, I had a bad day. I mean, I was bitten and hit.  I burned myself and had to throw away some food because I messed up.  I had to clean up too many pee accidents to count a mere minutes after asking my toddler if he needed to pee.  I almost missed Charles' drop… Continue reading How Do You Reset Your Mind?

Ten Thought Tuesday: March 12th 2019

Hi everyone! I haven't done one of these in forever, but I feel like being random today so... I finally sewed my bento bag!  Yay, I can put a little check mark beside my objective!  I had to finish my edges with a zigzag stitch which works fine, but is rather time-consuming because of having… Continue reading Ten Thought Tuesday: March 12th 2019

Lunchpiration: Tools of the Trade

Hello everyone! Today's lunchpiration post is going to bit a little different because last week was SPRING BREAK!!!! Woohoo!  Of course, up here in Eastern Canada, it didn't feel very "springy" at all (*ahem*ahem* -25C with windchill *brrrrr*), but it's a step in the right direction!!!!

Little Humans, Big Questions: Gender Identity

A few day ago, my daughter was colouring.  When she was done, she came to show me her work and proudly announced that she had coloured it for "C".  I praised her for her work and asked if she was proud of it like I always do, but at the same time, the wheels in… Continue reading Little Humans, Big Questions: Gender Identity

Wordful Wednesday

-  MOM, LISTEN TO ME! Unfortunately, I hear these four words almost daily from either one of my kids.  Often, I'm so absorbed with what I'm doing that I hadn't even realized they were talking to me until they utter them.  Sometimes, I actually am listening to them, but get frustrated because I don't understand… Continue reading Wordful Wednesday

Growing Up!: 7 Months Old

Today, Adrien is SEVEN months old!  I mean wow, time flies!  It seems like just yesterday he was a tiny new baby. And now, well, just take a look at this little charmer! I swear, he is nearly never not happy and is pretty laid-back. Of course, he does get cranky sometimes... But that is… Continue reading Growing Up!: 7 Months Old
