Strong Female Characters on Netflix #streamteam

International-Womens-Day-2014-Feature-1

 As we recently passed another International Women’s Day,  I’ve been reminded about the importance of seeing women in media, literature, and politics.  It’s something that I don’t always think about, being in a family with four boys, but it is still such an important topic.  Women have come such a long ways, but there is still so much further to ...

Reusable Containers at Bulk Barn – No More Plastic!

I have been hearing more and more about the dangerous long-term effects of plastic in our world. We are so quick to buy plastic, use it, and throw it out, without a second thought. But that plastic never really goes away. It will never completely break down. And if we don’t each make a conscious effort to reduce our individual ... Read More »

One of the most important tools we can have with our children is communication. We listen to them, and then (we hope) they listen to us.

I Never Promised You a Rock Garden

Untitled design (29)

The day that our little family has been waiting for has finally arrived: The Royal Botanical Gardens Rock Garden has finally reopened after a 2 year, $20 million makeover.  Pre-makeover, I had only visited once, but instantly fell in love with the place. I brought my mom and kids there for a Mother’s Day adventure, and it was an oasis ... Read More »

Monster Jam: It’s a Monster of a Good Time!

Another MonsterJam adventure in Hamilton has come and gone and, from the reports by my son, a rip-roaring time was had by all.  In spite of a couple new trucks this year, Gravedigger remains at the top of Hendrik’s list – he knows how to choose them – apparently Gravedigger won 3 of the competitions!    Hendrik’s cousin Liam chose ...

Netflix Playlists: Uniting Siblings EVERYWHERE! #streamteam

24976160 - Fuller House

I don’t know about your kids, but ours do not always get along the greatest. It’s nothing BIG, usually, but lots of little bickering. Who kicked who, who stole their toy, who gets to play Wii first, who gets to choose the music. Sometimes it’s enough to drive me crazy!! Netflix recognizes this struggle and has some great solutions!! They’ve come ... Read More »
