But Mommm: Stuff my Mom taught me

Let’s just say that it’s been a week. The kind of week that requires the purchase of two bottles of wine on Friday night. This week couldn’t even be saved by the spectacular royal wedding. You know what I’m talking about right? So when I sat down to write this post, my ears rang with the sound of my Mom’s ... Read More »

But Mommm: An Emotional Day

by Sarah Williams of HRM Parent The thrill of motherhood the joy of nostalgia and a dream come true.   I cried three times yesterday for three very different reasons. I had the absolute pleasure of experiencing the amazing world of Walt Disney through the eyes of my 2 and 4 year old daughters.  They had gone to sleep the night ... Read More »

But Mommm: I’m Out

by guest blogger Katherine VanBuskirk I found out this week that my sister is having a boy baby. “New Baby”, as all fetuses in our family are known, is coming in September and we’re all awaiting his arrival with great excitement. G is the oldest cousin and he’s thrilled with the news. He’s all over the math and the playoffs ... Read More »

But Mommm: Zone Defense

by guest blogger Deanna Cogdon Miller My roommate from university recently announced that she is expecting her third child and messaged me to ask if I had any advice. I would by no means consider myself an expert – after all, I'm only ten weeks into the role of 'mother of three' – but with that being said, a few ... Read More »

But Mommm: The Mom Uniform

by guest blogger Katherine VanBuskirk I was reading one of my favourite blogs the other day and the writer talked about her “Mom Uniform”. It was a passing reference to a couple of staple pieces of clothing that all Moms seem to wear. And wouldn’t you know it, I own and love and wear both. If I’m being honest, my ... Read More »

But Mommm: Memory Lane

by guest blogger Deanna Cogdon Miller (her photos by local photographer Kerianne Brown) Last week as I sat holding my eight week old while he slept, I noticed him making sucking motions with his mouth in his sleep. As I watched and listened to him, memories of his two sisters doing the same thing as they slept in my arms ... Read More »

But Mommm: The Sick Touch

by guest blogger Katherine VanBuskirk A favourite book at our house is Diary of a Wimpy Kid. In it, a piece of cheese lies on the asphalt in the middle of a playground. It sits and festers, refusing to decompose. In typical middle school fashion, any kid that let’s their curiosity get the better of them and stoops to touch ... Read More »

But Mommm: A Simple Thank You

by guest blogger Deanna Cogdon Miller If you’re anything like me, when you see your child’s daycare or school number pop up on your caller ID, you get a little lump in your throat. Two weeks ago, our daycare number popped up late on a Friday morning and I recognized the voice of our oldest daughter’s teacher. My first instinct ... Read More »

But Mommm: I’ve Got This

by guest blogger Katherine VanBuskirk  I’ve got this. Sometimes it’s easy to think that I’ve got this thing. You know? The parenting thing. I’ve done it now for seven years. I know about ear infections and rashes. I don’t darken my GP’s door unless it’s valid. I negotiate bedtimes and treats. I settle arguments and ration snacks to ensure peace. ... Read More »

But Mommm: The Princess Dilemma

by guest blogger Deanna Cogdon Miller Leaving our doctor’s office a few weeks ago, my four year old daughter said to me, “Mom, I don’t think our doctor is really a doctor. I think she’s a princess pretending to be a doctor so that she can find her prince.” Her comment struck a chord with me. Our doctor works with ... Read More »
