Building with Mega Bloks with My Little Man

We had school vacation for over a week, then two snow days. The stomach bug hit our home and so there were more school days missed on top of the already planned school break plus snow days. My children have been home more often than in school the past month so we have been trying our hardest to have some fun, during our non sick moments. We have a house full of toys but we also have a house full of electronics, this means there is  constant battle between getting kids to not want electronics. My little man isn’t a […]

Sibling Playtime: How to Combat the Inevitable Fights

Despite the blatant balking, once siblings are encouraged to play together, they will realise how much fun it can really be. The problem is trying to get them to play nicely without the inevitable squabbling, screaming and fighting. As soon as another child enters your family, it’s up to you to encourage their older sibling to get involved. From the off, if they are included as much as possible, they will automatically build a bond with the new baby which will stand them in good stead for when they’re old enough to play together. While little ones may not find […]

Always Looking to Save, Holiday Season Best Time to Save

It’s the holiday season, we are all about shopping for our family about now, well unless you are like me and wait until the last minute. I have a lot of friends who are already shopping for their families at this time and I am sure they are seeking out ways to save money with hot shopping deals, which is why I am writing this post. I like to save money all year round. The government is shut down now though and so with that comes consumers wanting to save even more money because they don’t have much choice but […]

I Love Having Children Who Enjoy Life to the Fullest

As a parent, well back that up, the day I became a parent for the first time; I had to ask  myself what type of person did I want my children to look up and what type of adults would I want my children to be. The answer was rather simple; I wanted and still want to have children who will learn, at a young age, to have respect, use common sense and have common courtesy as well as a respect for all elders and a fun loving spirit that takes them far in life. So far, my children have […]

We Are a Board Game Loving Family

In our dining room area is a bookshelf, that bookshelf is full of board games, crayons, coloring books and other such items to keep the kids and adults busy when the words “there is nothing to do” are released from the mouths of babes. As a family we enjoy playing various board games, however, the youngest of the family is usually quick to bore because there are not many toddler games for his age level that he would enjoy. It’s difficult with children in such far age gaps from ages 13 down to 5 to keep entertained with board games […]

The Gamer Household Needs Game Controllers, right?

While I limit the amount of video game usage in my home with my video game addict, Aedan, we do own a few different systems that occasionally need controllers for.  Video game console controllers can get costly and so when I am in the market to purchase new video game controllers, I tend to search online for a great store. Recently I found Megamodz where they have a wide selection of XBox 360 and PS3 controllers as well as game listings and more for sale. Me being the clueless, non video game addict, I was recently educated on just how […]

Living With a Blogging Mama

Can’t be easy. I am always having the camera in the faces of my children, the thing is that all of them can now tell me if they want me to share the video or camera pic and I respect their choice to say yes share or no do not share. Early morning pictures don’t do so well in this house, pictured below is my daughter and I with our bed head but smiling, sort of. And then there are the times we have family board game time. The current favorite in my house is the game of Life. K […]

Playing Paper Dolls with Dress Up Theme

I love having mother & daughter time with my little, big girl. Miss Ki is now ten years old but enjoys quality time with her Mama still, I will cherish every moment from now until this little/big girl becomes a teen and surely starts to distance herself from mother/daughter time. I hope that never happens, but I am a realistic person and know teen years may be the most challenging for me (and her). For her birthday, Ki, received a paper doll book with two dolls and various outfits. I sat down with her to enjoy some dress up time […]

Family Time Means So Much To Me

One day the family wasn’t quite sure what to do so we went downstairs to see what we could come up with to do. The first thing that came to mind was to create train tracks and play with our Chuggington Train Sets, this is something all of the kids enjoy playing together. I keep forgetting just how many trains and tracks this kid has from Chuggington so I thought I would share a few pictures from the family time we had a couple of weeks ago with these sets. Chuggington was a pleasure to work with last year and […]
