Maybe we bumped into each other at the grocery store and haven't seen each other in years. Maybe we've never met, but you've overheard my kiddo say something kinda enormous for a kid his size, and you want to share your admiration and excitement with me. Or, maybe you're my best friend and we're used … Continue reading Little ears are listening
One of my favourite things about homeschooling is how much more time my son and I have to spend together doing things we love. He only went a full day for a week, and half days for little more than two months, but even that impacted our lifestyle. Bedtime had to be on the dot … Continue reading Homeschooling outdoors
My husband and I don't always have time for a "date night." But we are fortunate enough to usually get an afternoon to ourselves when he's home. And if I'm being honest, I think I'm more of an afternoon person anyway. I like the sun. I like little local places. I like quiet and calm. (Despite … Continue reading Date day in Niagara

I understand the importance of good school attendance, and maybe my view of school is a little different from someone who had to work hard to succeed (a challenge I wish I had … Continue reading Learning on the road
I love travelling with my kid. I feel like that's not something many parents say. Sure, it's different than travelling when you're childless, but isn't everything? He brings nonstop entertainment AND people are super nice to you when you have a kid. Plus, Kaleb has the travel thing down so he's actually pretty helpful. I … Continue reading Travel time
It's 2017!!! I am so ready for this year. Looking back at 2016, it was a difficult one as a parent, and as a human being in general tbh, but we had some really nice moments and we got answers. So I think 2016 was the shitshow we all needed to get our game faces … Continue reading New Year. Same me.
