Below is a story of how I asked the Universe for some desperately needed help and it came to the rescue with UberBike.
As a spiritual person, I am constantly asking the Universe for signs that I’m on the right track but not too often do I ask for help. Sure, I struggle financially here and there and on occasion or one-hundred, I ask for help getting a parking spot closest to the Walmart entrance but generally, I don’t ask for too much help until one night I found myself in a situation where my gut was telling me something was about to happen…Continue reading “How my intuition yelled at me and my ask for help was answered.”
Let kids be kids is a saying I heard a lot of over my life time. Let them laugh, play, make fart jokes and get dirty. Let them fight (not physically) and make mistakes, break toys and eat with their fingers. Let girls wear pants and boys wear dresses. Right?
I choose to live along the lines of the above. My kids can be taught a lot of things but not how to love a certain way or a certain sex.
We shop at Walmart a lot. It’s a way for the kids to run off their energy and for me to shop. Sure I end up spending a bit more than I want to but it all works out for the better in the end. One day we were in the girls section and Kylan says he wants to put a dress on. He pointed to the dress and said,Continue reading “OMG, you let your son wear a dress? Damn right!”
If I want to be honest, I am kind of lazy. In the summer, not so much as I prefer to get outdoors and enjoy the warm weather for three months but otherwise, I have found recently that I want to do as little movement as possible. Can I blame someone? I blame my job. OK done.
I am always trying to think of easy yet fun activities that my kids can be very engaged in. With them being so young, I figured they’d be interested with everything there was in front of them for only a few minutes and the fun was over so I figured, since they like messes, I would just try some simple baking with them that was fun and that I didn’t have to keep lying around the house.Continue reading “An evening of baking with the kids | A surprisingly clean experience”
When parents get time to themselves, they are usually elated. No screaming, crying or obnoxious kids running around – you get a break! Raising kids can be tough and you absolutely need time away to recharge. But it’s also an amazing experience and a blessing.
Being a single parent who has my children every day out of the month except one week at Christmas break and every other weekend, I find it draining and somewhat difficult at times. I’m not talking about not being able to go out and have drinks with my co-workers when they send out a WhatsApp message to get together on a Tuesday night, but in general, as they get older, they start to fight, they get into activities, the need more of me yet are more independant, more emotional and want to stay up hours on end all the while I am tried as hell from a 7 AM – 6 PM work life.Continue reading “I feel like a bad parent when I’m happy my kids are gone.”
Teaching your child(ren) to use the potty can be a challenging task to say the least but with patience and persistence, you can be quite successful sooner than you might think. So long as your child is somewhat co-operative, understands the potty and what it’s for and has bladder control, it should make things a lot easier.
With my daughter, at the age of three and a half, she was finally out of diapers and not once has she had an accident while sleeping. She did, however, have one in the middle of Walmart one day – but that was the first and last. One day I brought home some Elsa and Anna underwear and said;Continue reading “A few tips and tricks to help potty training go smoother.”
Working out has been a part of my life since I was 19 years old. Seeing as I had been skinny the entire 19 years of my life, when we noticed that we were gaining a bit of weight from all of the Burger King Chicken Sandwiches with a Poutine on the side, we decided to hit the gym. I did it simply to lose the weight but my boyfriend at the time did it to gain muscle. It didn’t take long before I started to see my body transform into a tiny muscular machine that would continue to grow over the years.Continue reading “My 6 year weight battle that’s still going strong.”
