We recently visited Long Point Eco Adventure to enjoy some quality family time. When we were there we were lucky enough to go on a Wetlands tour.

At out Early Years the next week they just happened to have a Wetlands Sensory bin. My littlest was thrilled and really enjoyed retelling me all he had learned and the various types of turtles, frogs and  ...

Approximately five per cent of women experience reoccurring  ...

8 Simple Tips for Fishing with Kids

Fishing runs in our blood. From a very young age our Papa has always brought us out with him. I would love to say that I became a avid fisherwomen but truth be told I did not. I love going, but it is just not something I live for like my brother. Being blessed with a brother who is able to pass on all he has learned from our Papa to my boys is truly priceless. But if you have ever gone fishing with young kids it can be far from enjoyable. There is whining that there is no fish, there is  ...

Bra Care – Getting The Most Support Where You Need It The Most

Lets talk bras shall we! I don’t know about you but they drive me insane. So many cute styles, prints and colours but because I am rather chesty I never find anything that actually works for longer then a couple hours. Wearing your bra more then two times between washings can actually damage it. The elastic in each bra needs time to “recover” after each wear. This is wear I struggle as I honestly don’t own many bras. A recommendation is to have at least 3 bras. This  ...

Healthy Snacks for Game Day

Warmer weather is finally making its appearance where I am from. This means all the fun Summer sports are starting. I love driving by the parks and seeing the kids playing.

More Than Just A Picture

The other day we were blessed to be able to attend a Brampton Beast hockey game. The boys were super excited as it was playoff time, but when they realized it was front row the excitement radiated off of them. This is the closest the boys will get to an NHL game right now as the pricing is a little out of my budget. But they don’t mind, to them, these guys are just as famous and as good. My oldest spent the time between periods waiting to fist bump the players when they came off the  ...
