Monday's Moments ~ 11/07/16

That Monday very nearly got away from me, very nearly because the weekend before it managed! To say I'm been burning the candle at both ends would be an understatement but there's always, ALWAYS time to give thanks, right? In no particular order of d...

Things That Rustle My Jimmies

Oh Thursday, praise JEBUS, it's Thursday. To say jimmies have been rustled this week would be a wojus understatement - to share ALL of those jimmies would be career suicide - instead, here's the wittled down version....Read More »...

Motherhood: the mum and son relationship

While it’s noticeable how much N loves his dad for certain things – bear hug cuddles, play fighting, going out and working on the farm, having a bath while his dad showers – motherhood is very different thanks to the mother and son...

Time for an FMA Revolution

Let’s stir things up a bit. Yup, when it comes to stirring the pot, there aren’t too many people other than good ole theKuntawMan for something like that. That FMA Empty Hands article was written in 2009, and it is still the most read art...

Learning about health and exercise at school

One of the great things about children starting school is that you no longer have to answer every question they ask.  I’m presuming the teachers get a lot of their questions too.  But there’s also the mystery about what they learn at sc...

Pre children thoughts vs post children parenting style

Not being a fan of children before having N (I’m still reserving judgement on some kids even now), there were a lot of things I’d have been amazed parents let their children do.  While I never saw myself with children, I would still thin...

Creating a normal family life

Before we decided to try for a baby, our life probably looked quite odd from the outside. Having a farmer husband didn’t really change my independence and life much because he worked all hours of the day during the summer and in the winter was...

Shoe laces – a big mistake

N’s feet have finally grown.  His school shoes still fit ok but he needed new trainers which are always harder to buy.  His insteps aren’t particularly high, he’s an F fitting, but velcro fastenings never seem long enough on train...

Before stepping onto the Q train at the 57th street & 7th avenue station, I noticed that one cart was rather full in comparison to the others.  So I decided to get on the crowded one.  As soon as I stepped in, I realized that there were...

The tooth fairy cometh – first wobbly tooth

It’s another big first moment. Yes, N has his first wobbly tooth. It crept up on me.  I know several other 5 year olds who’ve recently lost their first, but thought we’d be waiting a bit longer.  But no, he woke on Monday morning...

How to cope without broadband as a blogger

As a blogger, one of the worst things that can happen is having no broadband.  While it can be quite relaxing without it – if it’s a planned break – when it’s unexpected, it can prove a little stressful especially if you̵...

Children’s chatter – Who do you dance with?

Now I’m back dancing again, I’m trying to get there 2 nights a week.  That helps on the fitness side, but also gives me a bit of a social life outside of work – although I don’t see many of my old friends there there’s only so much chattin...
