Ottawa Butterfly Show

I took the girls to the annual biology butterfly show at Carleton University this morning.  We tried to go yesterday but the lineup was way too long for a toddler’s attention span.  We had a good time, despite a pooplosion that meant poor Rowan was wearing only a sweater and a blanket as an outfit (the car seat AND stroller covers are in the wash) and Ashlyn alternating between fits because she wasn’t holding a butterfly and the butterflies coming too close.

Our big hope was that Ashlyn would only need diapers when we’re out (just in case) and at night/naps.  I bought a waterproof tablecloth from the dollar store to cover most of our carpet in the family room, brought her Read more […]

Wordless Wednesday – Rowan’s First Tooth

Tooth #1 arrived about a week and a half ago, but this is the first time Rowan has let me get a picture of it – all of the ‘rejects’ involved her sticking her tongue out at me.  I can’t believe she’s going to be 6 months old tomorrow!
