Our “Odd” Halloween 2015 Costumes

Halloween is definitely in the top two holidays in our house. I prefer Christmas but my husband is all about Halloween, so it works out pretty well. The girls decided a month or two ago that they wanted to be “Odd Squad” agents after their favourite PBS Kids show, Odd Squad, so I found some navy blue blazers, bought them white collared t-shirts and navy blue pants (which they can wear to school anyways) and made clip on ties (cut some red fabric and used my glue gun to attach them to hair clips) Read more […]

Our New Normal

Did you think I’d disappeared? As I mentioned on the Not Just Baby Brain Facebook page, we’re still getting settled into our new routine now that school has started.

The last weekend in May

Can you believe it’s already June? This past weekend we had my oldest daughter’s school fair on Saturday morning and the weather was hot and sunny. The girls got to play games, climb out of a trailer during a demonstration by a local fire department, and of course play at the play ground! I can’t believe how strong they both are on the bars now. That afternoon it started pouring rain so I helped them get into their swimsuits to go out and play – until a giant boom of thunder convinced us all to go Read more […]
