Car Rides with the Kiddos

Car Rides with the Kiddos
  Who loves a good road trip? I have always been a fan of them. Grab some books, my walkman (discman, mp3 player, ipod or iphone depending on the era), snacks and I was/am good to go. As kids we traveled to visit family frequently. In fact, my parents could probably tell you wonderful stories of my brother and I fighting in the back seat of the car. It never failed, an invisible line dividing the backseat of the car would eventually have to be drawn. I was the voice of all request radio from the backseat, making my suggestions for the next tape (!) or radio station. (Or signing along to Read more
     

A Mom’s Tale (Part One)

A Mom’s Tale (Part One)
So I spent all last week with my lovely little gals. Our daycare provider was still in Florida, and I took last week off work to hang out with our two little ladies. I wanted to do some special things with them--things I have wanted to do for a while... So we had a busy week--Monday we went to the drop in playgroup we frequented when I was on mat leave.

FROZEN Inspired Silly Putty

All of a sudden she was rhyming off the characters names and reciting the story line. That was back in May, before the stores were overrun with frozen paraphernalia! We don’t fully discourage it I will admit. For her birthday I did make her a Barbie cake, (you know—skirt is the cake with a doll sticking out) featuring none other than Anna. My Bug likes to have braids in her hair “like Anna” and my husband Read more
     

Frosty the Cottonball Snowman

Frosty the Cottonball Snowman
The bag of cotton balls has been a mystery to Bug since she spied it in my grocery bag the other day. She has tossed it in the air, pretty sure she has stepped on it, and squished that bag more times than I can count. Snowmen have been the talk of our household this week, we made a family of them on the weekend! We settled on pinecone eyes, and searched the areas where snow had been cleared for small stones for buttons. Grandpa rushed into the house to gather some carrots for noses. Mom and Dad are out of practice...we forgot all about a hat and scarf until a family friend asked Bug what colour Read more
