Time for a Nap

I was this close to not putting up a post today, primarily because I couldn’t think of a darn thing to write about. I once read a blog entry where the whole purpose of the poorly written ramblings were that the “writer” wanted to inform his readers that he had nothing to write about on … Continue reading

The Bad Idea

This post is really more about me sleeping, and not Saarah, but are you aware of how hard it is to take a picture of yourself when you’re asleep? It’s very tricky, I can assure you. When the children wake each morning, they have a wonderful method of inquiring whether or not we, the parents, … Continue reading

My Girly Daughter

To say that Saarah is “girly” is like describing a hurricane as “a gentle spring zephyr”. She is absolutely obsessed with pink and frilly things, pretty dresses, and of course all things pertaining to faeries and princesses. She is all too keen to pretend to do her make up with Mama(call me crazy, but I … Continue reading

Beem-bomisms Friday – Eating Worms

Holy smokes, is it really Friday already?! Apparently it is. Oh, that reminds me, I have to flip my desk calendar to today. I wonder if it’ll be funny. Wait right there, and I’ll go check. Hmm, not even mildly. Well that’s a bit of a let down. Where was I? Oh yeah, it’s Friday, … 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

A Cure for the Grumpies

It is normally right here that you would see a picture, but I’ve decided to take a slightly different approach today. Oh, don’t worry, there will be pictures, but not until after a brief explanation of today’s post. Yesterday, it would seem, everyone had a serious case of the Grumpies. Not necessarily in our house. … 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

Too Darn Cold

While I try and get the kids outside as much as I can, there are some days that it’s just too darn cold or miserable. This past weekend, and now today, really exemplify that. On Saturday it warmed up to three degrees, which, if it had been sunny would have been a terrific day to … Continue reading
