SAHM Contest Winner

Mar

mom and babyA big congratulations to our winner of our SAHM contest - Danielle M., of Vancouver, who wrote these words on what motherhood means to her:

"Being a Mom has made me a much more caring and compassionate person. Before I had children, it was all about me - and now with my two little ones - who are 26 months, and 3 months old, I feel like I've become a better person because of them".

Very inspiring words Danielle! And congrats on winning the CBC lullaby CD and book collection. An absolutely fantastic gift for your baby. It's being sold at public libraries across the Lower Mainland now. And there will be more prizes for SAHM readers coming soon!  And  for interested readers...

EasterTomorrow marks Easter Sunday, and a day my children have been looking forward to for the last few weeks. The Easter Bunny is making his way to our house (and to my mom's) to bring lots of love in the form of chocolate. :)

We are also hosting an Easter Dinner for my family and my sister's inlaws. I am really looking forward to it - as it has been some time since we have all been together.

apple juiceOk - I can't be the only one out here with children wondering what the heck happened to the one litre boxes of Sune-Rype boxes.

It has been more than a month of searching every single grocery store for apple juice and settling for the small, single boxes with straws to pacify both my children's craving for apple juice. So the big question is.........what the heck is going on here?...

No Longer a Stay at Home Mom!

01
Apr

So - it's official - I've decided to return back to work full-time, and give up the whole "stay at home mom" thing. I think it was really just a "passing fancy" anyways...

I mean, I gave it a shot but hey, it just didn't work out. I am selling the website, and have stopped writing my column. It was fun while it lasted, but this is really for the best.

 

APRIL FOOL's!!!!! :) .............
