6 Things I learned at MiLK – an Infant Feeding Conference

Today I was able to take part in attending MiLK – an infant feeding conference put on by the lovely ladies of MommyCon. It was a first for me, as I’ve never really attended a learning conference about a topic so near and dear to my heart. I mean, when you have your first born, you take the delivery classes, and maybe even a CPR class…and you just might also take a class on breastfeeding.   But what you don’t learn…

Jon Stewart and a Brave New Girl

Now that the world has been talking about Caitlyn Jenner on media, blogs, social media, television, etc etc… why not add another one to the lot, right?  However mine not so much will talk about my personal opinions on her transformation – albeit she is brave, strong, and she looks fabulous.  However will talk about something that only one person – Jon Stewart – I’ve seen point out is the women bashing that takes place.  I mean… why?   Women (and…

Are you Average OR Beautiful?!?!

Dove has done it again with a very powerful message for women.  We see their ads all over the place showing makeovers for women, and women of all shapes and sizes in their ads.  Continuously communicating the positive message to women to be comfortable in the skin you’re in. I mean, how many of us can really say they’re comfortable in the skin their in?  I know I can’t always… we all have our insecurities (most of us)… but do…

I Finally Get it MOM

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted…I’ve been blessed with being able to bring a second child in this world, and this pregnancy has been the most difficult thing I’ve had to endure.  I’m now on the up and up, and thought it was time to share a little something near and dear to my heart…a little bit about my mom. I just got through watching this fabulously motivating speech by wrestler Marc Mero.  You are first taken…

Thank-You

Just a little Thank You Goes a Long Way

WOW…were my eyes just full of tears when I saw this one.  I mean, what a great way to say thank you to some people who really do good in their lives.  From sending mom to see her ill daughter, to baseball tickets…to a bunch more…the TD Canada Bank gave back to it’s customers all over Canada through it’s ATMs.  And not just the average Automated Teller Machines….but Automated THANKING Machines.  Grab a tissue…you may drop a few tears… This…

6 Things My Single Self Apologized To My Mommy Self For

I wrote this article as a guest post on Daddy Doin’ Work. But I thought I’d also post it here because it’s just so awesome. 😉 You know you’ve done it before kids – rolling your eyes at parents whose kids are having a tantrum in the middle of Toys R Us, playground, or in the middle of a restaurant while they simply sit there and watch. You think to yourself, “Why isn’t that parent doing anything about it?!” Fast forward years…

Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise

LOL. This is one of the best pranks I’ve seen in a long time…and shows you how many people really believe that we have telekinetic powers, and also how scared they are of that power.  This girl does a great job, and the set is immaculate. Wow…what a great prank.  How would you react?  #FlexLikeCarrie

Let’s Talk About Sex…Or Lack OF… (and GIVEAWAY!)

Before the responsibilities of kids, a mortgage, juggling schedules , and of course the everlasting battle of who’s turn is it to wash the dishes, you get married to the one that you love, and just KNOW and even VOW that you will never become one of those couples that sit next to each other in bed (or at the dinner table) night after night watching Jimmy Fallon sans conversation, or even touching. Enter reality after you have kids, and…

Let’s Keep it Clean with Tidy Tote (and GIVEAWAY!)

Its a typical day with the family, when you’re out and about, running around, picking up groceries, a trip to the park, and maybe even a nice little lunch (well….maybe it’s pick up if you’ve got kids that just can’t seem to accept that a high chair is meant for sitting, and not standing, dropping food, and leaning out screaming like my son)…then IT happens…. you’re officially on poo patrol and need to change your kiddo stat, and try every…

Influenster Spring Fling VoxBox 2014

My Spring Fling Voxbox

Spring has come and gone, and so has the Spring Fling Voxbox from Influenster.  I have to say that I was VERY impressed with this Voxbox, and I thought that I would quickly tell you all about it.
