It is a New Year and We are 3

It is a New Year and We are 3! We are a week into the New Year and now is as good a time as any to reflect. As for resolutions – mine included lofty goals like brushing my teeth at least twice and day and to stop going to bed with my makeup on. […]

Spidermen

It’s Halloween and the boys ventured out for their first real Trick or Treat, canvas candy bags in hand. Two ‘Spidermen’ for 2013. For us (for me anyway) Halloween is the beginning of a series of events that ultimately crescendos into Birthday, Christmas and the New Year which seals, stamps and delivers the reality of […]

A ‘Funderstorm’

A ‘Funderstorm’

The other night we had a ‘funderstorm’ that rattled the rafters. I mean it was a thunder banger that lasted for hours. This is not a common occurrence on the wet coast. It rains a lot to be sure but we rarely get thunder or lighting storms worth mentioning, certainly nothing compared to some of […]

Wild Grouse

So this has absolutely nothing to do with having twins, being a mom or parenting in any way but I just had to share. I wish we had audio or video but alas, the attack was simply too shocking and time consuming to allow for any. Last weekend I was lucky enough to get out […]

Zoos • Sea World •The Beach

As promised – photos from our April trip to San Diego, CA. There were many firsts (like ice cream cones sand on your toes!)  and the boys are still talking about it. This sums it up! Zoos • Sea World •The Beach [nggallery id=10] Love KpS  

Things Are Changing Fast

Things Are Changing Fast

So much to write about I’m not sure where to start. Since we last exchanged letters on screen, my boys have started at the local day care one day a week and are about to transition to big boy beds! Things are changing fast around here and I am just trying to keep up. I […]

This is Two

Posted by on Mar 25, 2013 in Mom Musings, Parenting, Seasonal, The Boys, Twins | 2 Comments

Some time ago I stumbled upon a Blog Meme called This is Childhood. Really fun. Funnily enough, I couldn’t bring myself to read past This is Two. I can’t willingly read past Two but it is bearing down on me anyway. Picture extremely loud and out of control freight train… I’m the one tied to the tracks! […]

Wearing Jammies to Play Group Is Not a Crime

Posted by on Feb 20, 2013 in Mom Musings, Parenting | 2 Comments

Pick your battles they say. And they are right. I just love how having two year olds in your life can jolt the normal out of your morning coffee in the blink of a dinosaur wink. We have our routines, as every young family does and I’m the first to admit that I like my […]

A New Year – A New ‘Ski’son

Posted by on Jan 10, 2013 in Mom Musings, Mountain Life, Skiing, Sports, Twins | No Comments

It is a new year – a new ‘ski’son and a fresh perspective today. After a massive dumping of snow, the sun has finally come out just in time to highlight a stunning crystal blanket. It looks lovely: from my office window anyway, as my butt stays glued to my office chair and my fingers to the keyboard-grindstone! […]

Christmas Update

Posted by on Dec 27, 2012 in Mom Musings, Seasonal, The Boys | 2 Comments

It seems only fair that I add a Christmas update, given all the lead up to the actual day! With Birthdays, pre-Birthdays and Christmas celebrations, we have had non-stop action around here. It seems like Christmas just keeps giving and giving as Canada Post has opened its doors again and the rest of the Christmas […]
