But Mommm: The Mommy Wars

  I am a working Mom. I leave at 7am and I am home by 5pm. My husband works the same hours (or more when he has to travel). Our kids never sleep in our bed. We have a Nanny. We do not drive the kids to every practice or lesson.   Did you just read any of those things ... Read More »

But Mommm: The Word Yes

                Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair once said that, “The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.” I have to wonder if it’s actually the complete opposite for parenting. Is it possible that the art of parenting is actually saying yes, not saying no? It is very easy to ... Read More »

But Mommm: Screens

Screens are everywhere – between our phones, our actual TV, our work laptops and the iPad, the kids are exposed to them all of the time. It’s not the screens themselves, I guess, but it’s our collective reliance on them that’s starting to bug me. Our five-year-old wanted to practice her writing this weekend and felt she needs the app on ... Read More »

But Mommm: 2014

2014. Wow. For the first time in a decade, I’ve resolved not to make any resolutions. I’m not telling myself I need to lose weight or I need to spend more time with the kids or I need to be a better meal planner. This year I want to just roll with it – and most importantly, I just want ... Read More »

But Mommm: My Letter to Santa

  Dear Santa   I know these letters are generally written to you by the kids of the world but truthfully their asks are easy. Most of the time it’s things you can find in stores if you had to offload the elves in the toy shop. Us Moms, we have different kinds of asks. We have the kinds of ... Read More »

But Mommm: Wishing

  I love Christmas. I love everything about it. I love the lights on houses. I love having a tree in the living room. I love the parties. I love the school Christmas concerts. I love shopping for that ‘perfect’ gift. And, I especially love the excitement on our kids’ faces as their anticipation builds for the big day.   I ...

But Mommm: The Party

The birthday party. I’ve written about it before and I’m sure, with three kids, that I’ll write about it again. Our second daughter will be five in a week and because it’s so close to Christmas, we decided to have her birthday party this past weekend. Her very desperate wish this year was to bring her friends somewhere to make ... Read More »

But Mommm: Responsibility

I took the kids to PEI this weekend – my first real solo road trip with them. A friend had invited us over and my husband had some previous commitments so I figured it was a great weekend to try a little adventure. We rented a mini van with a DVD player (ummm, brilliant invention for long drives with kids) ... Read More »

But Mommm: Photograph

  I snapped a picture of our kids on the weekend and after I took it, I couldn’t stop staring at it. They all looked so old. How can those be my babies? It wasn’t posed, they weren’t dressed up – they were just goofing around having fun carrying each other around the house and it felt like a fun ... Read More »

But Mommm: Two Weeks

Stick a fork in me, I’m done.   It feels like all I’ve been doing for the last two weeks is booking doctor appointments, going for follow-ups, mentally prepping kids for appointments and of course, worrying. I know that I signed up for this by having three kids but what I don’t understand is why everything has to converge at ... Read More »
