I am the queen of overthinking. Some backstory: in my province you basically have zero obligations as a homeschooler other than providing your child an education. There aren't any inspections or required standardized tests, but there also aren't any funds either... which to be honest sucks because I'd love me some funds right about now. … Continue reading Overthinking a simple form
After two days of trekking outside of Paris, we were all excited to have a day in the city. We had a slow start to our day, having stayed at Disneyland Paris until just before closing the night before. A day to sleep in and take our time was warranted. We took the metro to … Continue reading Endless museums and delicious foods in Paris, France
This is not your movie night pizza. (Unless you run one hell of a movie night.) This is the perfect pizza for date night, or a night to impress your girls. Add some sparkling wine and Cards Against Humanity for Her and you've got your friends thinking you're a regular Martha Stewart.
Sweet, sweet summer. I have been so looking forward to you. The past school year - because I guess my life will be counted in school years for the time being - was quite the roller coaster ride. From sending my baby off to Junior Kindergarten. To watching him spiral into anxiety. To seeking professional … Continue reading Hello Summer
You know those people who are just meant to be parents? They hold other people's babies and coo affectionately. They keep calm when someone's injured. They make you smile when you feel like doing anything but. Well, I was never one of those people. In fact, I was pretty certain I was going to be … Continue reading Happy Father’s Day to my better (parenting) half
After complaining last week about how difficult of a time we were having getting back into the homeschooling groove, this week has been a dream! We're back to breezing through Beast Academy (our math curriculum), we printed out this awesome puzzle of Canada from CBC Parents, and today we took homeschool out of the house to … Continue reading Visiting Fort George
I see you guys on the Twitter. Your kids are home for the summer now and it sucks. Your kids want to eat every 5 minutes, they're bored, and you have to take them to the pool. The pool! I am really enjoying it because it's hilarious, but also, I'm crying inside because I homeschool. I … Continue reading Is it over yet?
Travelling with a gifted kid may seem like something only a crazy person would do. Between overexcitabilities and the fact they these kids never seem to turn off, it's difficult to just make it through the day . When would you even have the time to plan a vacation when you're parenting a gifted kiddo?! But what … Continue reading Travelling with gifted kids
I am finally getting around to finishing my posts about our lovely trip to Europe! While I had written most of them while we were there, it was pretty difficult to edit them and post as we went, especially as I was operating solely on wi-fi because Canadian data plans are the worst. So please excuse the time … Continue reading Disneyland Paris
My sister and I woke up at 6 am in a state of determination. We were in Paris, damnit! And we weren't going to let a bit of dirt (and okay, mold) get in our way. There was a laundromat downstairs and there were cleaning supplies in the apartment, we'd simply have to bring things … Continue reading Chateau de Versailles and Paris, France
