What does my Toddler Watch?


What Does My Toddler Watch I never wanted to be a mom that let my son watch TV. Let the thing be a ‘babysitter’. And I don’t think I have, mostly because we don’t have cable. I try to limit Gregory’s screen time as much as possible, but I do find it handy to have videos […]

Fitview – 20 Minute Yoga Flow by Candace


Yoga by Candace I’m really wanting to get into yoga more. I’ve attended hot yoga classes and loved them. But they aren’t in my budget. I’ve tried Yoga with Adrienne and enjoyed some of those videos, but I was looking for something different today. Someone new to maybe spark my inner yogi to come out. […]

10 Ways your Todler can Help with Chores


Montessori Chores Montessori parenting is great, we already implement a floor bed for Gregory in his Montessori bedroom and it’s been amazing. I love how it teaches a parent to remember that the real life everyday skills we adults use are also great learning moments for Littles. I enjoy letting Gregory help me with my […]

Recipe – Easy Sloppy Joe’s


Not-So Sloppy Joe’s When I was growing up there was always a shelf in the kitchen that had a stack of cook books filled with recipes that I, honestly, rarely ever saw made. Whenever one was opened, even just to browse, it was a magical experience. Today with Pinterest making it so easy to find […]

Travel – West Vancouver – Cypress Falls


An Evening Adventure It was Saturday, we just finished nap time and I had failed to plan an afternoon activity. The morning was great and filled with a nice jog around a lake and ended with us buying some red currants and cucumbers from a farmers market. Really enjoyable, but the afternoon was starting to […]

How I Taught my Toddler Patience


Patience Please Patience is not something someone is born with. It is an acquired skill, and not one that everyone learns. I still have to exercise my patience everyday, as a mother, wife, and human being on planet earth. I remember my parents saying “Patience is a Virtue” and never knowing what they meant. What […]

5 RAD Android Phone Apps for Toddlers


Phone Apps for Toddlers I was totally that pregnant lady who was like “I’m going to make sure I don’t let my kid have a lot of screen time”. And I do my best to still keep true to my words. But let’s be honest, it’s just not possible in today’s world. There are screens […]

Travel – West Vancouver – Lighthouse Park


West Vancouver West Vancouver is an area I’ve not yet explored. Well, we haven’t yet explored much of Vancouver at all, so I have made it a point to start doing some local ‘travelling’. What’s really fun about this Exploration Tuesday Adventure (ETA) is that I had inspiration to go looking for a specific thing […]

DIY – Canada Day Shirt


Canada Day Happy happy day, Canada – – almost! I feel like Canada day is often overlooked because of the American 4th of July celebrations, but there is indeed a big and fun celebratory holiday here July FIRST. In fact, I try to celebrate it a little more every year as Gregory gets older. We will eventually have big […]

Sensory Play – Flax Seed


Sensory Play Time You know that I’m a big fan of going outside during the summer and enjoying nature via Hiking and Exploring our beautiful British Columbia. And I’m also a fan of staying home and doing water table sensory plays outside. But the weather isn’t always prime, and it isn’t (wasn’t) technically summer. We’re […]
