Monster Mash 1st Birthday Party

For my youngest girls 1st birthday I ummmed and ahhed about what to do. Pink princess?  Pony queen? Rainbow rave? It had to be good, it had to be bright and a real celebration! The first year of Miss 1’s life has been difficult and challenging with her health, sleep problems and HUGE personality (which […]

Toddler in the house!

My youngest, Miss 1, is the busiest child I have ever met! From the minute we wake up (at 6am mind you!) she does not stop. Does. Not. Stop. She is go go go go running from one thing to the other, emptying one cupboard and moving on to the next, running away from me […]

Miss 3 - croup at night, bouncing by day

Croup has hit the Hart House – and I wish it would leave…

Miss 3 has come down with Croup.  I have somehow managed to avoid Croup over the past 6 years with the girls, so when I heard the trademark “bark” cough, I got a shudder up my spine. Straight down to the doctor who confirmed my suspicion that yes, it is in fact Croup.  After a […]
