I loved playing with dolls when I was a little girl, so it makes me so happy to see my own daughters playing with my dolls. It's so sweet to watch them take care of their 'babies' and while I'm happy to share my childhood toys, it's also lots of fun to see what new dolls are on the market. My friends at MGA Entertainment sent a lovely Mooshka doll that I know Rowan will love to find under the tree this year. Who are the Mooshka dolls?

Winter is coming - or is already here, depending on where you're living. Things are certainly a lot colder in Ottawa and we even had our first snowfall this weekend, though thankfully it's gone for now.

Books are definitely one of my favourite presents to give, receive and suggest for my daughters. It's always fun to add to our library and as the girls get older, we can branch out from stories to facts and information-based books. I was sent a package of books from National Geographic Kids (click the link for more information): Ultimate Weird but True 2, That's Creepy! and Are You Normal? 2. These books are aimed at kids 8-12 years old, but my 4.5 year old is enjoying flipping through the Read more [...]
