One of those Days

07
Dec

calendarEver have one of those "challenging" days when your health, your children and all the tiny details of your life, seem to have all piled together to make your life a little bit more difficult?

I'm feeling a bit low today, as I have laryngitis with an extremely sore throught and a terrible cold. And of course, I don't have a lot of energy - so the children some how have sensed this, and have decided to take full advantage....

Snowy Days

02
Dec

mittensThis weekend, the Lower Mainland was hit by a rather large snow fall. Yesterday, we stuck close to home and the kids just played in the snow in our backyard. And of course, we hung up our Christmas decorations in the evening.

Today, we ventured out a few blocks in our car to the local Mall to pick up some essentials. We also had a snow ball fight in the backyard and nestled in close to our fire place afterwards. Days like this make me think about life on the Prairies as a child and how snow was so common place (as it lasted for almost six months of the year) and how by tomorrow all of this snow here in White Rock, will be mostly melted away....

Moms the Word

Nov

The Stay at Home MotherI just returned from speaking to a group of new moms on maternity leave with MamaSpeak, which is a fantastic program for new moms. They were a wonderful group of moms, with lots of questions about what they will do when their maternity leave is over (isn't that a dilemma that most of us face?)

One of the moms asked me about how I catagorize myself as a stay at home mom if I am a mom with a home-based business? And one, who is able to make money outside of the home - in her view - I am a working mom......

Long Weekend

09
Nov

mom sleepingWith the long weekend upon us - I am really excited to have some extra time with the family to do some fun stuff. I love long weekends and the extra day of sleeping in (my husband and I trade off weekend mornings with the children for some much needed sleep).

So for instance, on Saturday mornings, my husband will get up with the kids and make breakfast, and on Sunday mornings, I will get up with the kids and do the breakfast thing and he will sleep in. And Monday?.....perhaps we will "flip" for it!.....

There are some great opportunities under the "Opportunities" tab this month. There is an Event company that is offering part time work for moms interested in occasional work and some others that either offer part time or home based opportunities.

And if you already have a business, or a business idea then you definately need to check out Enterprising Moms Network, the social networking group that helps moms build their business.

Short and Sweet

PencilThis past weekend was a great wind down from the week before with the Launch Party for Enterprising Moms Network. I spent the entire weekend just enjoying my children and really relishing in the fact that I am a stay at home mom.

I've been a stay at home mom now for almost three years and it has been the most rewarding experience of my life. And although I love helping other moms find a way they can be at home too - nothing will ever compare to a hug or a laugh or the words "I love you" from my children...

Busy Days

BusyAs I prepare tonight for my trip to Victoria this weekend to speak to other women about becoming Stay at Home Moms and Mom Entrepreneurs at the Victoria Baby Fair - I am both anxious and excited at the same time.

From day one when I started writing my "Mom at Home" column, I knew I was destined to help other moms find a way to be closer to home - and closer to their children.

Mom News

Sep

Mail BoxI have lots of "Mom" News to share - but first I want to share with you my son's return to Preschool for his second year. He was so excited (for the past week we have been counting the number of "sleeps" before it was time to go to school). His clothes were laid out the night before, and his new back pack was waiting for him at the front door. (He had an apple and a picture he drew for his teacher inside of it).

His teacher loved it and gave him a big hug (a hug that he has been waiting for all summer). It was just so wonderful to see him get so excited about school and getting to see all his friends again...
