We had a nice little day today. We went for a walk at the boardwalk in Pembroke. It's beautiful there. It even smells a bit like home because it runs along the Ottawa River. I love the sound of the water lapping up along the shore. Jack ran around saying... Continue reading

I woke up this morning and realized it was September 1st. SEPTEMBER!!!! THE FIRST!!!! It doesn't even seem possible. And Jack is 20 months old as of yesterday. I was glad to see my parents this summer. They stayed for two weeks (which also flew by like it always does).... Continue reading

Yesterday was Jack's first day at daycare. Holy crap. Where did 18 months go? Let me give you the rundown of events leading up to this monumental day. First, I've been agonizing over this for weeks. Should I send him or not? He needs to socialize with other kids and... Continue reading

What do you do when an older child hits your toddler? Jack and I took an afternoon stroll up to the playground near our house. As soon as he can see the play gear he starts to squeal. He loves to run and play there. I had just taken him... Continue reading

Oh... where to start. Well, why the hell do I have a blog if I never write in it? Right? I know. I know. Here are a few of my excuses, though: 'cause it's friggin' hard to find a minute; 'cause I don't have a safe place to put my... Continue reading

I had one of those moments tonight. You know the kind I mean? The kind where you hold your breath so you don't disturb the experience. I gave Jack a bath tonight. He played and splashed like he always does. The bathroom was soaked and so was I. He loves... Continue reading

My mom came to visit while Andrew was away. Almost two weeks. She went home today. We had a really nice visit. We didn't do anything exciting, unless you consider driving through the Metro parking lot at Lawrence and Bathurst exciting. You take your life into your own hands in... Continue reading

We got our official posting message today. We're posted to Petawawa, Ontario. We'll drive to Petawawa this weekend to check out some houses. Andrew's mom will come and stay with Jack. This will be the first time I've left him overnight. I hope he takes it easy on his grandmother.... Continue reading

Well, today we were supposed to have a monster storm here in Toronto. Schools were closed, businesses were closed and they discussed the impending craziness of this storm non-stop on the news. We did get a bit of snow. But not that much. It wasn't as much as the east... Continue reading

Jack has been a bit sick lately. He's had diarrhea for more than a week. I had him to the doctor a few days ago because I was worried. We got to the doctor's office and sat waiting for our turn among coughers and hackers and sneezers and moaners. All... Continue reading

The last time I wrote in my blog was December 7th. A lot has happened since then. Jack started walking on December 9th. He sings (or so it sounds) and dances now. He's started pointing at things and trying to say words. He recognizes babies and tries to say 'baby'... Continue reading

Jack had his first haircut today. I found a business called Haircuts on Wheels where the girl comes to your house. It actually worked out really well because I didn't have to fight through TO traffic and Jack was chilled out because he was in his own house. I threw... Continue reading

I can't keep my house clean. I can't. It's impossible. This house is small and we pretty much live in two rooms: the living room and the kitchen. Here's how things work - I make my way from room to room tidying and cleaning things up while a little blond... Continue reading

Ever do something stupid to yourself? Like, I don't know... have you ever smoked yourself in the face with the car door? Probably, right? Well, today I was in a rush. I wanted to take Jack to get his picture taken with Santa. I napped him, fed him, changed him,... Continue reading

Andrew and I have a fancy-schmancy new camera. It's not super high speed, but it's definitely the nicest camera we've ever owned. I'm still learning how to use it. But I did manage to get a few cute pictures of Jack. We were having a little picnic snack on the... Continue reading

This morning I woke up with a humongous cold sore. Looks like the Hawaiian Islands spread out across my face in blisters. Great! Jack has been swatting at my face ALL DAY LONG. So, I've been disinfecting his hands ALL DAY LONG. I've cleaned up poop three times today (none... Continue reading

My diet is horrible these days. I really need to get a handle on it. Lately my guilty pleasure has been to take Jack's Arrow Root cookies and slather them with peanut butter and eat until I'm sick. That is, when I run out of halloween treats, rediculous chocolate chip... Continue reading

So, I've been wanting to start a blog for the longest time. It seemed like every day something interesting would happen and I would say to myself, "See! If you had your blog up and running, you'd be able to write about this." I started this blog process I don't... Continue reading

This is my first post. Still in the process of building this blog. Don't have a sweet clue what I'm doing. Sticking a post in here so I can see what it looks like. I have about 30 minutes until the boss wakes up. Better get crack-a-lackin. Continue reading
