2 MEAL MAGIC

Don't worry this article isn't about left overs!   Most of my family refuse to eat leftovers. I haven't written a lot lately as I have truly been very busy.   We took in a 15 year old into our family at the beginning of the summer and for all of you who foster, you know how... Continue Reading →

Summer Clean Challenge

Cleaning? I would rather be at the beach or at least cleaning the pool! I love a clean house and I do need to clean when I'm upset but cleaning isn't usually on the top of my summer fun list.   I'm pretty sure it's not on anyone's summer fun list. The problem is....  ... Continue Reading →

Feeding 12 tonight!

I don't write about food.   I'm definitely not a food blogger by any means but once in a while I post yummy meals that my kids love on Facebook and people are always asking for recipes. BBQ chicken pizza is our kids favourite.   As I made it tonight I knew that this is one of... Continue Reading →

Welcoming Presidents and Orphans

This week the word welcome has really made me think. This week was the first time we struggled to find places for people to sleep and had to say no to a sleepover for one of our kids because all our beds were full and we already had all the extra mattresses and two cots... Continue Reading →

Teen Summer

My notifications tell me I haven't written in a while. Adding a new teenager into your home will do that.   It's also the end of the year so we have been jam packed with graduations, proms, award ceremonies, recitals, end of year parties for sports and school, buying all the necessities for summer and birthdays. ...

Birth Mother’s Day

I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day on Sunday. While most mothers and children love to celebrate mothers I know there are many who do not.   Some even dread the holiday.   How do you explain to your teacher that your mother is in jail, in rehab or simply abandoned you?   How do you cope with...

Testing, Testing 1,2,3

One of the hardest parts of being a mom is when your child is in pain.   One of the hardest things a child will have to reconcile is why your mom would allow pain. Mother's are supposed to protect and prevent injury to their children but what if the very things designed to help your... Continue Reading →

Take Time for Pleasure

I am definitely not a fan of the mantra "Do whatever makes you happy" because so many people do that at the expense of others.   Selfish ambition.   "I want this and I don't care who I hurt to get it."   Nope that's not the idea here at all. What I'm talking about is taking time... Continue Reading →

Fundraising Failure

In Canada, May is Cystic Fibrosis awareness month.   November is diabetes, osteoporosis and lung disease awareness month.  March is kidneys, liver, colon, epilepsy, and Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month.   February is black history and heart and stroke month.  April is autism, oral health, Parkinson and IBS month.   Are you getting the picture? Every month except August... Continue Reading →

Are you the bully or the bullied?

The definition of bullying is when a person or a group of people repeatedly do something on purpose to make someone else feel hurt, sad, excluded, scared or embarrassed where there is an imbalance of power. Guess what? I have bullied and been bullied.   You probably have experienced both as well.  All of my kids... Continue Reading →
