But Mommm: The Floodgates

by guest blogger, Deanna Cogdon Miller It has been a week of heightened emotion as I came to the realization that my maternity leave is entering its last few months and my baby boy is inching towards his first birthday. His gummy grin is filling up with teeth, he’s eating solid foods and now that he’s on the move, he ... Read More »

But Mommm: Merci Maman

by guest blogger, Deanna Cogdon Miller My daughter came home from primary with her Thanksgiving artwork on Friday and as I pulled the pieces out of her backpack, one paper in particular caught my eye. It was a turkey made out of a leaf and written across the page were the words, “merci maman”. After commenting on how beautiful the ... Read More »

But Mommm: The Agenda

by guest blogger Katherine VanBuskirk It seems like these days I confront my disorganization many times a day. In every room of my house. In every one of my many handbags. On my computer’s desktop. My name is Katherine and I am a disorganized hot mess. Since G has been in school though, I’ve felt more guilt than ever about ... Read More »

But Mommm: Change Artist

by Deanna Cogdon Miller Stacy and Clinton would have a field day in my closet. Another zip-up hoodie? How many hair clips do you have? Jeans and capris, jeans and capris, jeans and capris. Black, black, black, oh look some grey, oh and more black. Do you even have any shoes? And by the way, Chuck Taylors and flip-flops don’t ... Read More »

So tonight I’m recuperating – basking in the ... Read More »

But Mommm: My Village

by guest blogger, Deanna Cogdon Miller   It’s hard to believe that it has been ten years since September 11, 2001. Along with everybody else in the world, I spent this weekend remembering that horrific day and continuing to wonder how these acts of violence against innocent people can solve anything. And yet, they continue. Over the past number of ... Read More »

But Mommm: Back to School

by guest blogger Katherine VanBuskirk     Despite the fact that I sit here writing this salty and sandy, tired and happy from a weekend playing with family at the cottage, I can feel in my bones that the clock is steadily ticking, the calendar racing forward. The days of summer are slipping through my summer-coral painted fingers. It seems ... Read More »

But Mommm: Green & Purple

by guest blogger Deanna Cogdon Miller   One of things that I love the most about being home with all three kids on this maternity leave is having time to create ‘moments’ each and every day. It can be anything really – a question from one of the kids that gets a nice long explanation and follow-up questions, playing a ... Read More »

But Mommm: Date Night

by guest blogger Katherine VanBuskirk   Last week I fell in love with my husband. Again. Just to be clear though, there are many times in the course of a typical week that I stop and appreciate the awesomeness of BK. Almost as many times as I stop and grit my teeth at his more annoying habits. I did say ... Read More »

But Mommm: Priorities

by guest blogger Deanna Cogdon Miller   A few weeks ago on a Friday afternoon I was frantically running around the house trying to finish the laundry, gather groceries and pack for the cottage. We’d decided to head out early and meet some friends for supper and us getting on the road was dependent on me getting everything prepped and ... Read More »
