Birthday Parties

With the advent of Pinterest and the ever increasing competition amongst moms to “get it right”, kids parties can be a nightmare!

It’s Almost 2019

Another year has come to pass and what have you done? I mean SERIOUSLY – what have you accomplished this year?

Have you taken time to consider the things you slayed or the things that quite literally nearly killed you? 

Coconut Oil – “I Put that $#!+ on Everything”

I always knew you could use coconut oil in cooking as a healthy alternative, I even found a number of modern applications for it in our home health care routine but when my midwife suggested it could help spice up our sex life I … cringed.

First of all, I had dropped a clue I hadn’t expected … our sex life felt like it was on life support with a DNR more than it did a couple in love. Second, admitting that we might need a boost felt like admitting my lady bits didn’t operate as well as they used to.

Admitting I am getting older and that there are fault lines appearing in our marriage.

Potty Training – Before we start … again

If being a mom to four boys has taught me ANYTHING, and ... well, it has taught me a lot ... it has certainly taught me that the bathroom will forever and for always be an area of INTEREST for a young man.Maybe it is the whole, “oh, I have a PENIS!?” thing, or...

Painted Toes

Ok, I need to shout this mom victory from the roof-tops. Like with a speaker of some sorts, make it a public announcement, possibly even air it in place of the Bachelor. My boys, oh my boys ... they can be the dearest little creatures set this side of Heaven *they...

Spring Ready Body

Spring has sprung and it is time to put away the winter coats and boots (almost, I meant it is still a risk that you might get caught in 6 inches of snow).

It’s that crazy transition time when the weather is slightly above freezing and every Canadian is out in shorts, a t-shirt and their cracking Birkenstocks from three years past. Everyone and their brother is soaking in the “heat” as our bodies accustom to the changes in season.

As more skin shows, more self doubt sets in (am I right mommies). Here is my simple tip for ROCKING your mom bod this spring!

Just 5 More Minutes

Jumping out of bed with joy and pep seems impossible as a mom who is knee deep in the trenches of sleep feedings and nightmares.

Starting your day with intention and a plan, heck, setting an alarm, seems like a practice in futility when your children will – GUARANTEED – wake up before anything and throw your good intentions out the window faster than that last precious moment of peaceful slumber.

Why though?

What’s stopping us from starting right as mothers?

Mother Idols

Suppressing our feelings is like shaking a bottle of pop. For as long as those feelings remain behind tightly closed lips, the bottle shakes and quivers, building up the pressure and awaiting release.

Start opening that bottle cap the tiniest little bit and you bet that baby is going to blow!
