We can bicker and argue about who brought this cold into the house from their subway commutes all day, but until we get through it, the blame doesn’t really matter.
This is my favourite time of year. The air is crisp and cool, the leaves crunch under your feet, the smell of wood fires is more and more prevalent. Of course, I wish you all a Happy Halloween! Halloween was the best when I was growing up. Candy aside, the idea of being someone else […]
Our lives have changed massively in the last year. Going out used to be easy: Do the 3 point Macarena check on the way out the door (wallet, keys, phone – thanks Los del Rio!) and off you went. Now things are a little different. Dad’s every day carry has changed dramatically. Even on my […]
Miscarriage, circumcision, inoculations, pacifiers, and bed sharing. Got a question about one of these topics? Stay away from forums.

Leading up to the Wee Baby T’s birth, there were very few things I felt I was completely prepared for: Getting to the hospital – bags were packed and the route was planned. Sleep deprivation – I’ve worked through projects that kept me up for weeks on end, catching power naps here and there. Easy […]
After 3 weeks “on holiday”, I returned to work – to a stack of e-mails, a laundry list of to-dos, and a bulging voice-mail box. Surprisingly, it was easier to catch up than it was to take care of the Wee Baby T! After 3 hours my e-mails were under control, another couple of hours […]
