On one’s birthday you can have anything you want. For some its birthday weekend, then it turns into birthday week, and I’ve even seen some people celebrate their birth month! The ridiculous. The selfish. The outrages. It’s all yours for the taking. My wishes used to be a getaway. Montreal was a favourite. The cottage … Continue reading

Should boys play with ‘girl’ toys or activities?
Companies buy commercial air time to be exposed to their target market for their product. Well, watch any Treehouse or Disney TV and the commercials are mesmerizing. I see my son’s pupil dilate and the “I want that” begins. Even for the Strawberry Shortcake dolls. When I signed Marcus up for some extra activities to … Continue reading
Religion in School Necessary? Is Private schools the only way to get smaller classes?
I am far from a “Bible Thumper”, but I may sprinkle in some Merry Christmas, blessings, prayers, hope, etc here and there. I think everyone has what they need to survive this wicked world. But, how this foundation of enlightenment is established can start anywhere in this journey called Life. For some it is through … Continue reading
Spidey Pudding “Poke” Cake
I had a great suggestion from Jilly about a Jello “Poke” Cake. That set me off to google and go through tons of sites and recipe ideas. This is my version that I made for Marcus’ birthday: Ingredients: 1 box of Golden cake mix 1 box of chocolate instant pudding 1 tub of whipped cream … Continue reading

From Toddler to Little Man

Having watched all these crazy reality show about kid birthday parties, I know what I don’t want. We did a big dinner for his one month (tradition), but nothing big like that since. We … Continue reading
Back in the day it used to be your sex tape that you had to worry would somehow leave your house. I thought it to be the stupidest idea. A sex tape. Especially when the Pamela-Tommy tape mysteriously showed up and was being sold. Hhmph. “mysteriously”. They are a bunch of media whores, so I … Continue reading
Healthy Banana-Blueberry Muffins
As pretentious as I think Martha Stewart is, I have tried several of her recipes and 90% of them have been great. So, below is one of them I tried yesterday. I had a craving for banana muffins. Not too sweet. Not cakey. This was good and as fairly healthy. See my notes below to … Continue reading
Never Stop Learning
I had a great conversation with one of my Darlings. She reads my blog and had some very insightful suggestions after reading my post about Private or Public instruction. I respect her opinion. Particularly about this since she has experienced both private and public schooling. She has grown up to be a beautiful woman. Beautiful … Continue reading
Private or Public?
The suburbs are different to say the least. Both The Husband and I grew up downtown (shout out to the peeps of S.L.A.P. & Blake). We both went to Catholic & Public school. We turned out fairly decent IMHO. I took Marcus to one of his activities since The Husband is still recuperating and learning … Continue reading
