On Breastfeeding Dinosaurs

I think that my son is a wonderful, terrific, smart, funny, and handsome little gentleman, but sometimes he causes me to stop and scratch my head. He can be rather peculiar at times, to say the least. When he and Saarah play games that have family roles, Saarah is generally the mother, while Tevye plays … Continue reading

So Happy Together

I had made the subtle suggestion that I would appreciate it if the kids would be so kind as to play nicely and quietly while I’m getting some work done this morning. The rules are, as always, no running in the house, no jumping on the couch, no leaping through the air and using the … Continue reading

Mark This Date on Your Calendar

As I type this, I’m listening to classical music on CBC. Very fittingly, “Fanfare for the Common Man” has just come on. Actually, it’s a kind of creeping me out, just how well it works with the theme that I’m going for. As a matter of fact, click here for the music. Put it on … Continue reading

Vintage Saarah Chayah – 12.12.10

As promised, albeit a couple of days late, I have put together a selection of vintage Saarah pictures. I meant to have this up on Friday, but I was very busy all day and didn’t even remember that I hadn’t done this until 10 at night, when it was far too late to begin such … Continue reading

Nearly Naked Aerobics

Yes, the title may seem misleading, given that my children are both fully-clothed in this picture, but, as you will soon discover, it’s more accurate than it would appear. Trying to keep up a physically-active lifestyle while it’s stupidly cold outside(-18C today) can be difficult. The level of difficulty is increased when you are the … Continue reading

Christmas in February

Tevye and Saarah have this wonderfully annoying habit of bringing out every single toy, book, and blanket that they own at the same time. If I don’t stay on top of them, repeatedly reminding them that they need to keep their toys relatively tidy, then within an hour I find myself avoiding a veritable tidal … Continue reading

Getting Ready to Play in the Snow

Yesterday morning, from the moment they woke up, Tevye and Saarah were excited to play in the snow. More than that, they were desperate to play with the boy who lives across the street. I assured them that once it warmed up a little, in the afternoon, we would be able to play outside. The … Continue reading

Puzzlepalooza 2012

Sick and tired of flimsy cardboard puzzle boxes falling apart, Nicole had the brilliant idea to switch most of the kids puzzles to Tupperware containers. Not only that, but she had the foresight to tape the the picture from each box to the inside of the lid so that the puzzles shouldn’t get mixed up. … Continue reading

Baoentoims Day

On the weekend we informed the kids that Valentines Day was this week. Upon this discovery, Saarah was so excited that when she started jumping up and down, she almost put her head through the ceiling. She’s a big fan of the day, despite the fact that she was completely unaware of any meaning or … Continue reading

Stinky Germs

Tevye and Saarah, after seeing a show, are always eager to reenact what they’ve just watched, and today was no exception. They will generally put their own spin on the events, and elaborate on the subject matter(see Rocket to the Cheese Moon). While it may look as though the kids are playing with some horrid … Continue reading
