My Little Pony theme party

Last week my daughter turned 4 and we hosted her friends (and ours) with a My Little Pony party at our home.
We had so much fun putting together the games and activities.

How to make cloth diapering easy (and stick with it)

We used cloth diapers eagerly when big G was born, but had given up before she was three-months-old.

When baby #2 came along I decided I wanted to try cloth again. This time I would do it differently.

I’ve learned a lot and we are happily still using cloth almost 10 months in.

Litterless lunch snack ideas: a work in progress

One thing that has me on edge is the litterless lunch idea. I don’t see the point in unwrapping a snack and putting it in a container. I feel like that defeats the purpose so I want to come up with snacks I can make from scratch instead (remember, we are only a week in to school).

I figured I could use this space to keep it all together.

The simple trick I use to stop my daughter’s bedtime stalling

Our almost four year old is suddenly coming downstairs after we’ve put her to bed, complaining that she can’t sleep. Either that, or she stands at the top of the stairs sobbing until one of us goes up to see what’s wrong. Here is my simple trick to help her stay in bed.

Made in Canada

We are kind of a bunch of nerdy patriots in my house.
With that in mind, we recently started buying eggs and meat from local farmers. And when making purchases for our two kids, we always have an eye on buying Canadian-made.
