This New Form Of YOGA Is Sure To Catch On

I love yoga. Or more accurately, the idea of yoga. Not to mention the sinewy limbs that come from actually practicing yoga instead of sitting on your ever widening ass watching You Tube videos about yoga while eating crackers slathered in 115 mls of apple butter. If this yoga class comes to a studio near me, I’m so signing up. HILARIOUSLY calming. Who’s with me?

Dissing A Hero

  Even helpful and hard working super heros are sometimes dismissed. Take what happened to the Incredibles. That poor family was completely dissed by a cynical society. And check out this poor super hero. Just trying to keep his grandparents; backyard safe and free of evil, look at how his sister and family completely disregards his efforts! To be frank, it’s hard to take super heroes seriously when their cape is held on with a clothes peg. Just saying.

Grandparents—a video

Grandparents are a gift. Sure, sometimes you want to exchange them, but mostly you’re just incredibly grateful to have them in your life. I grew up surrounded by love and laughter and I’m thankful for that. And now my parents are sharing the silly side of life with my kids. When my parents look after their grandchildren, my kids can’t shoo us out the door fast enough. When my husband and I went out for dinner recently, my parents came over and played with the kids for hours in the basement. My mum shot this video of Poppa entertaining Avery is his sweet, funny way.

John Cicada

  Any opportunity to pick up an insect and my daughter takes it. Grasshoppers, worms, moths, ants. Last week it was a wasp. The fact that it stung her hand didn’t stop her from picking up a bumble bee the very next day. Yesterday at the park Avery and her dad met a sickly cicada. They named him John. Here’s what happened when they tried to rescue it. I wonder if Buzzfeed will pick it up? 😉

  Humour is one way I’ve found to help maintain a positive attitude–for the most part anyway. Admittedly, some days I’m a wreck…a big ball of bitchiness wrapped in worry, topped with a pessimistic glaze. Finding the funny always brings me back. Some people look at me sideways when I make jokes about my child’s leg braces or other things (which I won’t name for fear that you think less of me). They feel it’s in poor taste perhaps. I say, “Deal with it. This is how I cope.” The other way to avoid crossing to the dark side is by drawing from the strength of those close to me–the loving, thoughtful and brave people I am blessed to know in my daily life. Tiff is my best friend since the third grade. We have grown from children to women together and she knows the true me, and accepts me warts and all (*For the record, I don’t actually have warts, though I am sporting a large pimple on my chin which daughter keeps referring to as “Mummy’s boo-boo”). Tiff fought cancer and kicked its ass and she’s experienced significant loss, more than once. Despite it all, she remains the[…]

Vlog – My Workspace

I’m a looky-loo. I enjoy Open Houses and walks after dark to sneak a peek into illuminated homes around the hood. I also like to eyeball people’s vlogs — I’m always interested in seeing where people work at home. So, I thought I’d take a minute to show you MY home office space. It’s not fancy. In fact, it’s kind of a messy mishmash of adult-meets kiddos-meets a whole lotta filing that will never get done. If you decide to share YOUR workspace, please leave the link in the comment section below so I can come have a peek. We nosey folks love good peep show. My workspace: How is this for the stupidest screen shot ever?

I love capturing silly, spontaneous moments on film or better yet, video.  Kids love nothing more than to watch themselves in action. Ok, not gonna lie, I enjoy watching myself too. Clearly my family’s a bunch of narcissistic hambones. While I was at the hairdresser getting my skunk streak restored to its youthful state, I flipped through my phone and stumbled upon these two videos. Apparently “somebody” was getting his paparazzi on while mama wasn’t looking.   Avery idolizes her big brother (don’t let her angry tirade in the first video fool you). She follows him everywhere and repeats everything he says and does. I wish I’d captured a video of him telling his little sister “don’t be a drag, just be a queen…” or getting her to repeat, with feeling, “I like big butts and I can not lie…”   Speaking of big butts, I also found THIS photographic gem on my phone. My child has taken this paparazzi gig to a new low. I mean really, sneaking a pic of his mother in such a compromising/unflattering position?! He’s reached rock “bottom.” LMAO!
