A few tips and tricks to help potty training go smoother.

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;

My 6 year weight battle that’s still going strong.

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.

G I V E A W A Y // Tile App: Best Bluetooth tracker for your children

If you have children, losing them in a crown, or anywhere for that matter, is one of the worst feelings in the world. The fear inside of you kids into the highest of all gears and you start panicking and running around screaming for your child.

Being a single parent with a now six year old who is very interested in things and walks ahead and then off to learn more about them and a three year old boy who disappears into thin air after aimlessly following behind, I find it extremely hard. Unless I have one sitting in the cart (who screams when I put him in) so I can have my eye on the other, I am filled with anxiety at all times.

Today I put my cat to sleep; I cried while my daughter laughed at me.

Today was hard. Though somehow in my gut I knew this was what was going to happen, I didn’t want to believe it. All my life I have grown up around animals and even when moving out, I had gotten my own. Through all those pets, I never once was around them when they passed, either because they had left the house or I just wasn’t around.

When I was 21, I had gotten Chino, a cappuccino, long haired Ragdoll cat that was so beautiful. When Chino was about a year and a half, I had somewhat taken in another kitten whom I called, Leroy, that I had found outside meowing in the freezing rain. They grew up together and my kids have had them their entire lives. Last year towards the end of summer I had to put Leroy down due to kidney failure and unfortunately today I had to put Chino down for the same disease.

Music | Teaching kids it’s rude to talk about Uranus.

Recently I heard my daughter singing; not something that’s out of the norm but what caught me off guard one day while driving to Walmart was the lyrics coming out of her mouth that went like this:

It’s rude, it’s rude, it’s very, very rude…to talk about your anus, to talk about your anus.


After listening to her say it over and over again, I finally asked her,

“What….how….where did you hear that from?”

Meeting the girl that your ex is now dating.

I knew when I left my husband that one day I would have to deal with the fact that he would be dating someone who eventually he would want a long terms relationship. I was cool with that but was very hesitant on having any women (or men in my case) being around the children.

Last year he had come to me with the news that he had been seeing someone for a year and knew that my one ask when we split was to not bring the kids around the women he was dating until he knew it was serious. I appreciated the fact that he came to me about it but I wanted to know who this was. I felt like as a mother, I wanted to know who was going to be around my children whether it be a lot or a little. I’m pretty sure he was confused as to why I wanted to meet her but agreed.
