So at the risk of being one of those ‘smug mummies’ I went all out for Bunny’s big birthday party this weekend and probably forayed into another over the top ridiculous zone of parenting.
Confession: I became a bit of a party mama! For those of you who have been spared the reality TV series here’s a bit [...]
There are so many things to say about the dads in my life; my husband’s, my daughter’s, and my own that this post leaves me feeling a little teary-eyed but I wanted to take a few minutes here to celebrate these men who have, and continue to, write on the essence of who I am.
About a month ago my girl said shoes, that’s right shoes. She was carrying around one of my shoes and kept trying to put it down and step into it – and when I asked her what she was doing with my shoe she looked up at me and said shoes, four or five times [...]
WOW! It’s taken me long enough to be embarrassing (as in the site just came up for it’s annual renewal) but I’m finally making some headway – BluElephant.ca is up and running. I have to thank the amazing beauty and brains behind http://goodnaijagirl.com/ for the help here – I’ve said it before and will say it again [...]
Somewhere along the line – somewhere between infancy and adulthood – we develop an aversion to poop. As children, poo jokes are hilarious and then, as we age, boring.

We had one ourselves just a few short weeks ago, have already attended another and have [...]
One year ago there were no toys in my bathtub, no shakers under the couch, and no sippy cups in the sink waiting to be washed.
A year ago there were no play dates, no hush-a-bye, no babytimes.
A year ago I bought many fewer avocados, no cream cheese and was nowhere near as compulsive [...]
We’ve reached the 9 month mark with Bunny and I’m simply amazed; amazed at the way the days, weeks and months have flown by and amazed by my ever-evolving daughter. On this, her 9 month milestone ‘birthday’ I wanted to take note of a few milestones we’ve recently reached…
6 teeth – I think there [...]
This father’s day – my husband’s first was celebrated by our daughter in some very special ways…
SLEEPING IN! Now it’s a tad amusing for me to realize that I’m excited about sleeping in till 8:00 am – but I am – and so was Bunny’s Dad – ahhh sweet sleep – thanks Bunny!
This was my first Mother’s Day… and for Mother’s Day my baby Bunny has given me a few lovely gifts that I want to capture here:
1) a dirty diaper! after starting solids it was clear things were getting a little more challenging for her digestive system but I was really worried when a week [...]
