Oh Hellllllooooo!

My lovely son has some absolutely ridiculous habits. Things that are completely unnecessary to continue existing, or even have any impact on daily life, but he’s insistent. My absolute favourite of his ridiculous habits is when we’re in the car. As soon as we arrive at our destination, at EVERY destination(really, it doesn’t matter if … Continue reading


This weekend marked the very first soccer practice for Tevye and Saarah. Leading up to the big day, Saarah was quite excited, but Tevye was nervous. He was worried that his coach might not be very nice, or that he might yell and be angry. For the first while I was unable to figure out … Continue reading

Shoveling Stinky Dirt

The weather over the past few days has been co-operating, at least some of the time, and so we’ve been able to play outside in the yard. Yesterday was 7 degrees in the afternoon, though on Monday morning everything had a light dusting of snow, I suppose just to remind me that I live in … Continue reading

My Money is on the Car

The kids have spent the last hour doing laps in the living room, apparently having races with their toys. Tevye chose his Lightning McQueen, a super speedy race car, as his entrant for the “Living Room 500”. Saarah, being the interesting, though horribly impractical soul that she is, chose her Dora Fairy to race on … Continue reading

Saarah’s Sneaky Secrets

On Friday morning, while I still wasn’t feeling well, I was determined to write a blog post. I sat in front of the computer, searching through pictures and wracking my brain, trying to come up with something that I might share. While I sat here, I could hear the children in another room, and it … Continue reading

The Souza

Yesterday afternoon, Saarah and I were in goofy sorts of moods, and we were making up words. I used the word “souza” in something I was saying, and she thought this was a pretty funny word. A few minutes later, she was busily looking at the corner for some reason, when out of nowhere, she … Continue reading

Why I haven’t been Blogging

First off, let me apologize for not posting anything over the past week. It’s not that I was too busy, or had nothing to write about, but rather, I’ve been horribly sick with the flu. Actually, the kids were also quite sick, though they managed to recover significantly faster than I’ve been able to. Somehow, … Continue reading

It’s Pronounced “Lentils”

Poor Tevye woke up feeling horribly sick yesterday morning, and spent the majority of the day either resting on the couch, or sleeping in his bed. He didn’t even get up until 11am, and then by 2pm he was back in his bed, sawing logs. He didn’t eat much of anything all day, claiming that … Continue reading

A Unique Birthday Present

If you were to ask Miss Saarah what the most important part of getting ready to go to the park is, she would tell you that ensuring adequate hair-clip-use is right near the top of the list. If one or two hair clips are nice, then how much better would 247 hair clips be? I … Continue reading

The King of France

Tevye and Saarah have this delightful game, where they take everything they can find, line the items up, end-to-end, and pretend they’re a road. Then they drive their cars all over this road. Once the cars have reached the other end, they will go and get pieces from the beginning of the road, and add … Continue reading
