Make winter more wonderful with NCircle Entertainment (#giveaway)

Some people are 'winter' people; I am not one of them. Once we hit -20-something with or without the windchill, I have zero interest in leaving the house unless absolutely necessary.

Old favourites and new friends are keeping my 3 year old happy during these cold winter afternoons. Octonauts: Pirate Adventures DVD Seven action-packed episodes that centre around Read more [...]

Keep warm and read! Our latest preschooler/early reader favourites

It's no secret that when the weather gets cold, I hibernate. Curling up on the couch with a good book is a favourite way for all of us to pass the time, and these are the books that my 5.5 year old and 3-almost-4 year old keep reaching for right now!

My word for 2015 is ‘thoughtful’

I know I've said it before but I'm just not a New Year's resolutions kind of girl. Now that we're nearing the end of January, how many of you are still even thinking of your resolutions? I am on a few online forums and on one of them, a poster mentioned an idea from Christine Kane that really resonated with me: "Pick a word for the year. Just one word. That’s all. Then, hold that word in your mind throughout the year, and let your word guide you to take action." I've decided on "thoughtful" Read more [...]
