Random Sundays: A Day At The Museum


 I’ve become very aware of the fact that my girl is going to school in just a few short weeks. The days when we’re home together and can do anything on our whim are coming to a close.  So I’ve been trying to do some really fun things with just the two of us.  Dates, as you will.  And just recently we went to the Royal Ontario Museum to check out their wildlife and dinosaur exhibits.


 As soon as we entered she plowed through everything really, really quickly.  And once we reached the end she turned to me and said, “Let’s start again!”

So we did and this time we went through slowly, doing all the activities.



 After a few hours, and tons of activities – including a tea party – she was pooped.


But at bedtime she asked, “When can we go see the dinosaurs again Mama?”

Random Sundays: Week Away

The week away at the family camp was possible the best time in my little girls’s life. So far anyway.

They Keep Bathing Me


It’s a huge injustice.

One Dog, One Bath

Not only did Drake the Dog have to suffer the indecency of a bath, but then he couldn’t even freak out without baby girl jumping all over him.

I tell ya, life as a dog is rough in this house.

Everyone’s Idea of Fun is Different

There’s a Holiday Train from the Canadian Railway that pulls up with all these lights. One of the cars is open and set up like a stage for a Christmas concert. There’s hot chocolate. There’s a firetruck and an ambulance for the kids to run and sit inside.

Lots of families.  Lots of smiles.  My Baby Girl loved it.
Sometimes Toronto feels like a small town. 

Meanwhile, Drake the Dog’s idea of fun is passing out on a pile of little pieces of paper. To each his own I guess.

All Natural Spa Night Birthday

My best friend, Emily, had her “29th” Birthday party and she had a great idea for a two parter day.  The first part was a fun family visit where partners and children were welcome.

Of course my Baby Girl decided to tell everyone what to do.  She had the adults dressed up and reading stories to her.

For the second part the families got kicked out and it was just us ladies for some wine and an all natural girl’s spa.


I loved getting together with some of these ladies that I hadn’t seen for a while, and meeting some wonderful new women.  They’re all such generous and open hearted women. Feels like I’ve known them all for years.

Random Sundays: Handy

Some people have a handy man.
Some people have a handy woman.
I have a handy baby. 

Random Sundays: Chin-Up Robots

I bought a P90x chin up assist.
When it came in the boxes I was so excited about my new toy.
Little did I realize that I had also bought a robot costume for baby girl.

Last weekend. My Babcia, who was visiting from Poland was flying out within a few days.  So we spent as much time with family as possible.  Which meant that Baby Girl spent as much time in the pool as possible.  Her favorite order?  “Jump, Daddy!”  And he of course, gladly obliged.

What to do with Leftover Juice Pulp

My regular obsession with juicing has led me down another path:  cooking…sort of.  Don’t get me wrong, Andrew is very much the gourmet and I have no intention of fighting for that title.  It’s just that as I’ve been juicing, every time I got rid of the pulp I was disheartened about the waste.  So what did I do?  I finally figured out what to do with the pulp.

I made two batches of gluten/dairy free muffins with veggie pulp.  And then made a curried potato stew with the rest of the pulp.  Yay!  I have good nutritious meals and yummy juice.

I’m thinking of putting it into pastas, and stir fries too.
