The Kissing HandYesterday was my son's first day to kindergarten. It was a day filled with lots of excitement and worry (on my part).

My son embraced the day and woke up early to get a head start. We talked over breakfast about what he could expect and he nodded enthusiastically when asked if he was really looking forward to it....

Small Business BCIn November I will be teaching a course through Small Business BC. The course is called "The Entrepreneurial Mom - Running a Small Business". It is going to be taught at Small Business BC's Vancouver location and broadcast across the Province, by video conferencing.

It's so weird when you are on the other side of it and have to just sit there and patiently wait for some nurse to take pity on you and share some information with you about the progress of the baby.
