The Timer Tidy

Y'all know that it is a scientifically proven FACT that we can get more done in the 15 minutes before company arrives than we can in about a month of day to day chores.  It's like the moment you receive that text from your mom-friend a little battery ignites in your...

Spilled Milk

They say you should never cry over spilled milk ... and then they remind you that spilling breast milk is a totally different ball game.  But have you ever spilled milk.  ... It was at breakfast the other day, my boys were all gathered around the table waiting rather...

Start, start again if you have to

Have you ever had an idea that was just so great you NEEDED to act on it immediately?Or, at least you felt like you needed to act on it but then maybe you hesitated, you waited a little while so that you could "flush out" your thoughts, and then you allowed yourself...

Labour Day – Oils to Get you Through

“Ok, Monika, you’ve done this 3 times before, you should totally know how this works and this is going to be a breeze!” You know that self talk you give when you KNOW that labour is starting? I NEVER assumed that this 4th birth would be one of my hardest. My 3rd...

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.

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.

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!
