Yes, These Kids Have Already Been in the Pool #NH #VT

These kids of mine have already ventured into the pool at my Dad’s home in Vermont. Yes. They did. The pool was about 70 degrees. Of course, me being the parent I am, told them only dip your feet. Seriously, what was I thinking? Dip your feet means get in the water up to your chest, which turned into my Dad saying to me, “what are you talking about? If they can put their feet in then they can get in!” Leave it to Dad … so in they went. So the kids… decided to listen to Grampa because Mom […]

How to keep your car clean and organised when you have kids

If your car is anything like mine, then it’s very much an extension of your home and most likely filled with kids colouring books, empty sweet wrappers and a heap of clothes and shoes (amongst other things).  In spite of religiously taking my trusty motor to be cleaned once a month, inevitably by the end of the first week ‘post clean’ it’s back to it’s usual grubby, unorganised state leaving me wondering how on earth it happens.  I am definitely blaming the kids! However, it doesn’t have to be this way and with just a little organisation and effort from […]

Warm up your Living Room with Fun and Colourful Pillows

The winter isn’t just creeping in anymore, it’s here in full force and we’re already starting to feel the effects. With the nights getting longer and the days getting shorter we’re also spending more time indoors and thusly more time in the living room, where (as the name suggests) we do the lions shares of our actual ‘living’. Of course we’ll be stoking the fireplace and cranking the thermostat up a few notches but there are many more subtle (and less expensive) changes we could be making to our living rooms to make them not only ‘seem’ warmer but to […]

The Litlte Dudes New Pet – Wormie Lee Smokey

The other day my youngest and I were getting some much needed outdoor air and play time when we happened upon a huge worm; I believe it’s a night crawler but who am I to distinguish which worms are what. The only thing I knew is that this was one large worm. My five year old son quickly went to grab a container for his worm friend. I assumed this would be like any other outdoor thing we find; he places it in a container, walks around with it for a while but then we let it go or it […]

While Sitting on the Rug, Waiting for The Youngest to Sleep

While sitting on the rug waiting for my monkey of the bunch, yes that would be K-monster, to fall asleep I am found analyzing the rug.

We went from having mostly wood floors to having a nearly fully carpeted house, that means the boys were first and foremost excited to have “squishy” carpet floor for their bedroom and I was excited to be able to […]

Owning a Home Means More Responsibility of Pest Control

I remember when I was renting places that I was never really in charge of ensuring that pests stayed clear of my property, after all it is the landlords responsibility to pay for any pest control services. As a new home owner, pest control is something that we will be in charge of and responsible for should unwanted pests arrive on our doorstep. In our home, I am the one scared of moths and he is the one scared of spiders. It works out great, we laugh at each other over these things. I feel like the big bad woman […]

As we worked to move all of our stuff into this new house we have come up with a list of various things we realize we need now with the […]

Easily Brighten Up A Dark Room

Repaint The most obvious answer to brighten up a dark room is to repaint in a brighter colour. The best idea is to paint it white if it’s especially dark, since painting all the walls in a strong colour might be a little too much. White bounces and redirects the light around the room, often making it feel larger and more spacious. It’s definitely the first step to take if your walls are painted in a dark colour. If you’re unable to paint the walls then the other suggestions should provide alternatives to help in brightening up your room. Light […]
