I certainly remember potty training Lauren. It took longer than I expected because she simply wasn’t ready. (I voiced my concern to Jillian’s pediatrician. He told me that I had words to use about a special needs child, but Lauren didn’t have that kind of vocabulary to explain how she felt about her sister). Jillian is another story. We’re trying to figure out if she has the sensation to know when she needs to pee or not. She’s eager to learn, we just haven’t [...]
Growing up, I was a HUGE tomboy. I hardly ever took the time to put makeup on. I saved it for “special occasions” or on days I felt I needed a pick-me-up. I’m still the no mess/no fuss kind of girl but now that I’m growing up (finally! ) I find playing with new makeup fun. The girls are always confused when I put makeup on. Jillian asks me why I won’t let people see my “normal” face. That kid [...]
I’ve vowed to make 2014 a better year in terms of blogging! I have some pretty awesome things coming up and I can’t wait to share them with you. I find that since the girls started school, we get more illnesses than we ever had before. Not surprising though. I went into Lauren’s JK year thinking “no big deal. We hang out at a hospital for fun” Boy. Was I wrong! It was routine that Lauren’s teacher would meet me [...]

Because the event is on Saturday, this is a flash giveaway. So the timeline of this giveaway will be quick, hence [...]
Are you ever successful in seeking out the years top toys before Christmas is here?! I can honestly say I never have been. Normally a toy catches on and the girls want it. No wait, they don’t say want they need it. And then I’m left scrambling trying to find it like the rest of the unlucky population. I remember when Furby first came out. (Am I dating myself?!) Even though it was released in 1998 and 1999 and I was 17-18, [...]
For our next toy from Learning Toys, we got to review a pretty fun game called Camelot Jr. The ages on the front of the box were from 4-99 so I knew that both of my girls would be able to play this without many problems. It seems whenever we receive a new product to try, the girls want to rip into the box and try it immediately! No different this time either!
From the makers of Camelot Jr. :

My ‘little’ blog has had some amazing opportunities lately! A few weeks ago, we were given the opportunity to test drive a brand new 2013 Chevy Equinox. A girl could get used to this treatment!
Isn’t she lovely?!
I was determined this summer, to have fun with the girls. And so far (except for the last week) I’ve stuck true to that word. Sometimes a girl just needs a little downtime, much to the dismay of my girls. While we had the [...]

Since we’re recently lamenting the loss of our iPad (don’t worry it was a fast and painful death) the girls have been allowed to use the new Nokia Lumia 920, only if they were sitting down and had washed their hands, yes, mama was being a little anal, I didn’t need the new pretty windows phone to face a similar demise like our iPad. What better than to video them about their experiences? I’m never sure what kind of answers [...]
Hard to believe we’re nearing the end of the Summer Switch program with Microsoft Canada, Rogers and the Nokia 920. I had so many reservations about leaving my iPhone behind when I started this project! Luckily for me, after the learning curve was bridged I fell in love with the phone, just as everyone else said! Below, you’ll hear more about the apps that I love and the apps that haven’t made it to the store yet.
One thing that saved [...]
