What They Don’t Teach in Babysitting 101

Like many 12-year-olds, my daughter recently completed her babysitting course, which in theory will enable her to venture forth into the world of watching other people’s children with insight, knowledge and experience. However, after having reviewed the course materials and grilling her on the information that was shared, I do believe that as a mother of four I should share some vital facts which seem...

Can You Re-Gift a Gifted Child?

There’s a new program which was introduced into an Alberta elementary school where kids as young as seven-years-old will be able to choose a “major” or specialized stream of learning, based on their very well-developed areas of interest. Unless they have a category called “Watching the Transformers Movie for the 1002nd Time,” I’m thinking my own child wouldn’t qualify for this program. In fact, the...

Does Coffee Size Matter?

Does Coffee Size Matter?

Sitting in my hotel’s dining room this morning in Bordeaux, France, watching residents drink impossibly small espressos, I likely gave an audible sigh of relief when my server offered me a large coffee. I’m not sure if it was my North American accent that tipped her off to the fact that a) I had no idea how to operate the complicated looking coffee machine that...

Talking Turkey, Eh?

Talking Turkey, Eh?

Thanksgiving in Canada comes a whole month earlier than it does south of the border, and for that I am especially thankful. Mostly because it lands before Halloween, and then allows me to have a full two months to take off the candy and turkey poundage prior to indulging in both once again at Christmastime, just when those jeans finally zip up. So, in honour...

The holiday season is mere weeks away and our ambitions to fit into that cute sleeveless little black dress gain strength. But who has time or energy to work out? Good news, moms: it turns out you already are working out. As a public service, I just wanted to remind you of all of the exercising you’re already doing. • The Toddler Squat: If you...

Connecting at Blissdom Canada

So a talking yam and a New Kid walk into a conference… Blissdom Canada From Oct. 13 to 15, Toronto hosted the second annual Blissdom Canada conference. If you don’t have a clue what that is, you’re not alone, but it’s also clear that you’re not a part of the social media discussions happening in the biggest corporate boardrooms in Canada either. A conference which...

Baby Butt-lers

There’s a new industry that has emerged as an offshoot of one of the oldest professions in the world. It’s dirty, often takes place late at night, behind closed doors, and creates controversy in terms of what’s really right and what’s really wrong. That’s right: parenthood. But fear no longer, because today it is recognized that just because you actually are a parent doesn’t mean...

Teenagers vs. Toddlers: Which Are Worse?

Teenagers vs. Toddlers: Which Are Worse?

I recently engaged in a debate online with other parents about whether they thought the teen years or the toddler years were harder to survive. Depending on the age of your children, opinions vary, although I think that parents of toddlers who nod and say, “I hear teens are worse” don’t really believe anything could be difficult than the perilous parenting of a tippy and...
