Today’s Picnic at the Park.


Today I am looking after my friend’s boy while she is at work. Another dad friend asked if we would all like to go to the neighbouring park with his family. Of course! Way better than the kids being cooped up inside. So the four of us went to the park to meet up with two other parents and their…

It’s My Birthday!


I am 37 years old this year. I wish I could stay 36 forever. This year I accomplished a lot. It was a good year. Plus, I love the sound of that age- the perfect sweet spot between ‘too-young-to-know-better’ and ‘too-old-to-care’. However, time stops for no one. Onward!   This year I have made myself proud. I have crushed my…

Struggles Last Week & Life Loves


Last week was sooooo long. I did a lot of crying. My workout seemed harder than usual and the kids were cranky about school (“It’s booorrrinnnnggggg!”) and the days seemed so short.

Setting Up Grief Counseling


Today Josh and I spent the morning talking to a grief counselor to set up sessions for Hunter. We figure he doesn’t need much but would love to set up a therapist for him so he has the tools and the dialogue to use when he needs it. Josh and I just don’t have any idea how to proceed with…

Hunter Turned 6 Years Old!


Hunter turned 6 years old on Friday, January 20th. My children turning one year older is not something I take for granted, as I used to. Hunter’s birthday was full of joy tinged with sadness. He mourned the fact that his friend B. couldn’t celebrate with him as she was so excited for his birthday this year. We talked to…

The Hands of Wonder Woman, The Body of Baymax


Hello! Today I feel nearly recovered from my cold. Our family was sick for a month and a half with tiny breaks in between where we were well. It was brutal. I had the flu, a cold, another cold and then the worst cold of all! I currently have a nose that could light the way for Santa’s sleigh, it…

Happy 2017!


It is a new year! I am wishing you all a…..       There is so much pressure to perform better, faster, stronger and more efficiently in the new year.
