Just the Two of Us

This past weekend Saarah had been invited to the 1,476,984th birthday party since the school year started, and she just HAD to be there. It was billed to be a veritable “Who’s Who” of the kindergarten class, and she couldn’t miss out. Such an event meant that Tevye and I would be alone for supper … Continue reading

Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One…

The two stinkers have discovered how jokes work, and have been attempting to put them to good use. It all started one day in the grocery store. As we entered the second hour of my wife trying to figure out exactly which shampoo will do the best job of causing large quantities of her hair … Continue reading

Caught Unprepared

Where do babies come from? Why can’t I take candy from strangers? Why is the sky blue? Why do people like football? These questions, while difficult for a parent to answer, are generally expected in the early years of a child’s development. From the moment you find out that you’re going to be a parent, … Continue reading

What?! Why Would She… I’m at a Loss

A few months back we were driving home from Ballet on the weekend. The class had gone well, Saarah was in a good mood, and DJ Moishe was spinnin’ some sweet tracks(I have no idea if that’s how you’d say that. Is there anyone out there that can tell me if I sound “hip” and … Continue reading

Monsters, of the Fattest Variety

Some girls enjoy playing games where they pretend to be princesses, and if certain cartoons are to be believed(which they aren’t), there are an awful lot of princesses running around the world. The vast majority of them imply that a princess wears fancy dresses and drinks tea. A princess has to follow certain palace rules, … Continue reading

But What if There’s Bears?

This summer we decided it was time to introduce the kids to one the most Canadian of all summer activities: Camping. It has been brought to my attention that “all the cool kids are doing it”, and if that isn’t an argument worth listening to, I don’t know what is. So, after having procured the … Continue reading

Giant Slingshots, Corn, and Pumpkins

On Sunday(was it Sunday, or Monday? Oh, right, we were making Thanksgiving supper on Monday, and Saturday we were at the dreaded Mall, so it must’ve been Sunday) we went to one of those corn maze, pumpkin patch, fall-ridiculousness things. It’s located about an hour away, in the town of Truro. Now Truro is the … Continue reading

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

Local News Agency Confirms True Identity of Spiderman

After years of speculation and wondering, the true identity of the superhero known as Spiderman, has been confirmed. For many years, it was rumoured that a young photographer, by the name of Peter Parker, was the man behind the mask, but recently that has been disproved. Parker had everyone believing that he was responsible for … Continue reading

The Big Beautiful Steam Donkey

While we were visiting Powell River, BC, we thought it would be fun to visit some places we used to frequent when we lived there. Now, on the surface, this sounds like a good idea, right? Well it turns out that the people who had since moved into the house we lived in didn’t necessarily … Continue reading
