Our Summer Vacation: Sussex, New Brunswick

I put my travelling with kids survival guide to the test last week when we drove from Ottawa to Sussex, New Brunswick to spend a week with my husband’s extended family! With upwards of 10 stops on the way there (perhaps potty training the 2 year old three weeks before we left wasn’t my brightest idea; on the upside not dealing with diapers while on vacation for the first time in FOUR YEARS was awesome!), it took us about 13.5 hours to make the drive.

After visiting all of the animals, learning some ‘life lessons’ from Michael such as ‘pretty animals are usually Read more […]

Just Right™ 6-Month Anticavity Kit (giveaway)

You see, both my 4 year old and my 2 year old think that they can put their own toothpaste on their own toothbrush and they get downright angry when I say no. The problem is that when they try to do it on their own, about 10 times more toothpaste than is needed ends up coming out, getting all over them, the toothbrush Read more […]
