But It Hurts

Why is that doing the right thing always hurts?!  Take shoveling your neighbour's driveway for instance; this hurts!  Literally.  You're out shoveling the pile of freshly plowed snowed from the bottom of your driveway, because you are on the evening or night shift and you just know that there is no way that your neighbour...

Cleaning Up

I have some OCD tendencies.  I'll admit it.  I like things a certain way and it drives me mad when they aren't that way.  In fact I tend to hit a bit of a depression when I am overwhelmed by a messy and disorganized house, which was often the case when I would come home... Continue Reading →

My Boys

In some ways I think my boys are more demanding of my attention than my daughter.   My boys are very sweet little guys. At nine years old they are far more kind and caring than I could have hoped for. They don't wrestle with each other or hit. They adore their sister and idolize their... Continue Reading →

Making A Home

Big Shoes To Fill

I'm quite sure somewhere along the way someone has told you that being a parent isn't easy, and well I'm here to confirm it.  There is a lot of pressure to get it right.  To not screw up your children.  To make good people.  There is this implication that this is a natural or even...

Eastward Bound

When you've decided that change is what you need, figuring out what that looks like is a huge challenge.  There are so many things to consider, especially when you have three  little kids.  We looked at so many things like cost of living, opportunity and what would make us all happiest.  The decision was one...

Join Them!

Video games are more popular than even and you'd be hard pressed to find a kid out there who hasn't played one. There's a lot of controversy and debate over the worth and problems that arise from our children being raised in a technical world, but honestly I believe it's like anything else, moderation is...
