Amsterdam: Land of a Thousand Bicycles Family / Huffington Post

Amsterdam is a city of almost 800,000 inhabitants, and 600,000 bicycles. Bicycles are stacked along the sides of canals, outside restaurants, historic buildings, at the docks for the canal “taxis” and tethered to the sides of the 2,500 houseboats. But as a North American traveling to Amsterdam, I was simultaneously impressed by their pedal power while surprised to discover that not one single cyclist owned...

Reasons to Have a Dinner Party (Hint: They’re Not Just for Guests!) Family / Huffington Post

I had a dinner party this weekend. It was a Hunger Games themed dinner party which may or may not have included a “Pin the Arrow on Katniss’s Face” competition. But not all dinner parties have to be that fancy. At my house, inviting people over for dinner works for me on several interesting and often unexpected levels. 1. I have to clean my house....

Talking Turkey, Eh? Family / Huffington Post

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...

Baby Butt-lers Family / Huffington Post

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? Family / Huffington Post

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...

Twitter 101 for Moms Family / Huffington Post

Let’s face it, if you’re a mom with a newborn you may as well give in and embrace the world of Twitter, and chat online at 2 a.m. instead of watching those infomercials. If you haven’t entered the world of Twitter yet, make 2012 the year to get online and in the know. Worried about what to expect? I’ve prepared a handy roundup of all...
