House Guests

This week we were asked to housesit for grandpa. Big brother was so excited to spend a whole week sleeping somewhere besides at home. To him it’s like a vacation. Little brother was a bit harder to...

 

I Asked For It

With all my nagging the boys I shouldn’t have been surprised when the boys came up with a nickname for me. I first caught on when I saw Little Brother mouth a word to Big Brother and watched the two...

 

Bummed Out Boys

In an effort to teach my sons how about chores and responsibilities, I’ve really had to crack the whip. My struggle to enforce the clean up after yourself rule is an uphill one. A good example, I...

 

The Oh Yeah Dance

It’s February break and the boys have been hanging out with me. Since there was no school, my mom offered to take Big Brother for one night this week. She came and picked him up around lunchtime....

 

A Buddy

On Friday the kids were lucky and got a snow day. No school meant sleeping in and staying in jammies. They were so happy when they woke up on their own and realized that they had slept in and could...

 

Bad Guy Jokes

We do a lot of joking around at this house. Even when we have kids visiting we have to pull their leg or test out their gullibility. Last week we had a packed house. Both American and Canadian...

 

My Mom’s Luck

The last few weeks have been especially trying. You know that old saying bad news come in threes? Well in my case it’s more like multiply it by 3 and then maybe one more time for good measure. It...

 

The Bed Bug

Little brother is my little cuddler. He always has needed to be held or have to be right next to us to fall asleep. The only times he’s fallen asleep alone is in his car seat. On rare occasions...

 

The Awkward Files

When you have kids you can bet money on them embarrassing you throughout their childhood. They don’t do it on purpose but it is given in to this merry-go-round ride of motherhood. Now I have two...

 

Tons Of Toy Time

I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. I know my boys did. Big brother had been counting down the days until Christmas break for two weeks before it arrived. All he wanted to do was stay home, sleep...

 

Niawen

I had planned on doing an article about things that we are thankful for around Thanksgiving but it didn’t work out. Once in awhile I find it good to give shout-outs to those individuals and...

 

The Tail

Big brother has recently become more into having friends and hanging out rather than wanting to play video games or go to the playground. If we are headed to the playground he asks, “Who can we...

 

Big Kid

This weekend Big Brother turned eight years old. Leading up to it he had big plans but he kept changing his mind. He had overheard grownups talk about this new addition to the Carousel Mall in...

 

Alone Time

It’s become that time again. The boys have begun to want their mom or their dad all to themselves. It happens when we baby-sit a lot or our schedule gets so busy that we haven’t been given the...

 

Stood His Ground

When raising children you are responsible for so much. We teach them to share, encourage them to be brave and give them a shoulder to cry on.  We listen to their fears and try to coax them to...

 

Imagination Technician

Lately Little Brother has become quite the little pretender. It’s hilariously cute, the things he comes up with and it’s fun to watch. A serious look will come across his little face, you know...

 

Five

As I’ve written before, I took little brother out of daycare back in April and had spent most of the time keeping him busy and happy. We had a few one-on-one months while big brother finished up...

 

Hear me?

After working hard on his speech, little brother has been talking really clear. He still has his cute mix ups with his t’s and k’s. When he says them they sound like d’s and g’s. A few others...

 

A Wave and a Wink

The brothers have started school. Big brother was so ready to go back. After a few months of his Brother’s sabotage antics he was frazzled like one of those stressed out mothers we see in Walmart. A...

 

Growing

It was time to do school shopping again and for the first time I was done a week and a half early! I usually wait right until the weekend before school, but I had the opportunity to go this past...

 

My Wild Child

Little brother has made a habit out of always outdoing himself. Just when I think that there is no way he can outdo a previous stunt or sneaky adventure he ups the ante. I should have known when he...

 

Camping Chaos

We have been trying to go on a family camping trip for the whole summer. We were trying to hold out for Sandbanks in Ontario but there was never availability. So this past week we finally made our...

 

The Vigilante Visitors

 We hadn’t been to my grandmother’s in over a week so we were overdue for a visit. Usually they are short because little brother manages to get her so nervous with his endless jumping and...

 

Working Boys

There is a rule in our house that if you are mean to your brother or talk back you get put on weeding the garden duty. The boys like to help in the garden just fine, as long as they get to pick when...
