Oma’s Garden

We spent most of our day today in Dundas visiting Stuart’s Mom and Brother. Stuart’s Mom is an excellent gardener, and we relaxed outdoors enjoying the beginning of the spring blossoms and blooms in her yard…Liam played happily with Chloe, their Cairn Terrier, and we also enjoyed a walk around the neighbourhood…what a beautiful spring […]

As they get older, it becomes increasingly difficult to photograph sleeping children. For starters, the flash required for photography in dark places would likely wake them up, and by the time parents of toddlers actually get their children down for the night, about the last thing on their minds is “hey, let’s get out the […]

To continue yesterday’s post, I am pleased to report that the little dog which we found, has been returned to his grateful owners by staff at the Guelph Humane Society…sometimes, when good things like this happen, it makes it all worthwhile!

Doggone or Dog Gone?

I Want My Mummy!

Watch the clip As a child, I watched Sesame Street daily. I loved the Muppets (and still do!) and think Jim Henson was so much ahead of his time in his progressive children’s programming. I have to say however, that one particular skit involving Ernie and Bert in Egypt was enough to send me running […]

More “Nuduts”

Perhaps I am stating the obvious here, but it seems to be a commonality amongst all children that they like sweets. It appears that Liam is no exception. I recently made the mistake of introducing him to “just a small taste” of one of my worst eating habits…doughnuts! He simply fell in love with them, […]

First Impressions

Today, we got our first glimpse of our baby to be! It was a short ultrasound which only lasted about 10 minutes, as it was just to “date” the pregnancy (I found out I am 14 weeks, 3 days) right around what we thought actually… It brought back all of the memories and emotions from […]
