But Mommm: Schedules

I’ve read a ton of articles and blogs this week about getting back into the school routine – the stress of scheduled mornings, packing lunches and getting kids out the door to class. So for this week’s blog, rather than writing about school, I’ve chosen to write about another fall routine that I find more painful/stressful than packing lunches and ... Read More »

But Mommm: Kidfree

Guilt. It’s the elephant in the room for every parent. In fact, Guilt and his buddy Worry are the little devils constantly sitting on one of our shoulders heckling us as we make decisions. Should I have done that? If I make this decision what could happen? I should have been there for that. They need more of my time. ... Read More »

But Mommm: Freedom

A year and a half ago one of our good friends approached us and asked us if we’d consider going to Bermuda to celebrate his 40th birthday. It took about a split second for us to say yes and within a few weeks there were six couples confirmed to go. It seems like we made those plans forever ago.  Yet ... Read More »

But Mommm: Exhaustion

“Mom, he hit me.” “Dad, she pulled my hair.” “She’s bugging me.” “Leave me alone.” “He took my seat.” “I wanted that toy.”   I don’t know what has happened but we seem to have turned some kind of corner in our house in the last two weeks…and it’s not a fun corner. With a snap of the fingers, the ... Read More »

But Mommm: Compassion

I’ll admit it – I love the Royal Family. I’ve followed them and read about them since my Mom, Grandma and I went on a three generations trip to England and Ireland when I was in Grade Eleven. Like most of the world, I was glued to social media last week in anticipation of Kate and William’s birth announcement and ... Read More »

But Mommm: Just Breathe

“Tomorrow is another day. Tomorrow is another day.” Those words kept repeating through my brain as I experienced what could only be described as one of the most frustrating parenting nights that I can remember. It started with a bad sleep the night before. Work had been particularly stressful with a number of deadlines and important meetings scattered throughout the ... Read More »

But Mommm: Emergency

The Emergency room. One of the last places you ever want to be with your kids. If you’re there it means something bad is in the process of happening, something has already happened or you are questioning something because you just don’t have a good feeling about it. No matter which way you slice it, as a parent it’s yucky. ... Read More »

But Mommm: Bonding

As I continue to navigate this mystical world called parenting, I am constantly amazed by the front row seat we’re given to watch incredible things unfold.   Most recently has been our two year old’s transition from toddler to little boy and the new relationship that change is forging with his Dad. I’ve watched my husband form incredibly strong bonds with ... Read More »

But Mommm: Getaway

Seven months ago my good friend and I bought tickets to bring our girls to see Taylor Swift in Toronto. At the time we thought about giving it to them for Christmas but realized that we both had Christmas pretty much planned and that six months was a long time for kids to wait for something. So, just as fast ... Read More »

But Mommm: Stuff

Even though it has only been two years since we had an infant in the house, I am constantly amazed by all of the new baby products I keep seeing on social media and in advertising. I can’t tell you how many times in the last few months I’ve said to myself, “Oh that’s a smart one, that would have ... Read More »
