Summer is nearing the halfway point and the kids are starting to miss the routine of the school year. We have been keeping busy outside because lets face it here in Canada our outdoor season isn’t that long (unless you enjoy being outside in the cold which I do not) but this summer has been a bit disappointing and as of lately we have had more gloomy rain days than I would like to see so keeping the kids entertained and happy is getting challenging. Toys is always a touchy subject with people some things kids should have lots some believe in minimal toys wherever you stand I’m not here to judge. In our home we go through our toys every 4-6 months and pack up a bag or two to sell or donate to make room for new ones. When you have 3 kids that means 3 birthdays plus lots at Christmas so its great to recycle them and make room for new things. Recently Num Noms sent my daughter a little package with some fun new things to try out and she was so excited. I’ll be honest I knew nothing about these products so I was a bit shocked when she knew what they were when she opened the box. (guess Ive been living under a rock).  In the package was 3 Num Noms Lights Mystery Pack which she graciously shared one each with her brother and sister. (you can see in the one photo her little sister trying to steal one already). These super cute little Nums fit on top of the scented Noms which light up in two colours. The second item was the Num Noms Lights Freezie Pop maker and let me tell you this is super fun “toy” and perfect for the summer. It comes with 3 (which is perfect since we have 3 little people in our home) Num freeze pop moods and 3 flavour packets. Such a super cute and way to have a freezie and even more fun to use at night when it lights up! The last gift she received was the Num Noms Surprise in a Jar! I’ll be honest this looked like a stuffy in a jar and I thought – great just what she needs another stuffy (I can’t stand stuffy’s sorry) but even though it is a cute little plush stuffy it is scented and it smells amazing like real cotton candy!! There are different characters to collect and the cute jar the come in can than be reused as a piggy bank or storage for something. Thank you so much to Num Noms for these super sweet gifts you made my daughter very happy and she has been enjoying playing with all the fun things for days!

  • Long weekend spent doing errands and packing - sore throat, full ears and a headache making this girl frustrated - sleep they say!?! And I say I wish but when your a mama to 4 and moving in just days sleep will have to wait! Thankful for medicine, @starbuckscanada and the fact we get to move to our new house so soon! Perspective changes everything - can’t change how I feel but I can change my focus!
  • Cold wet morning and early specialist appointment where they told me I had to wear loose fitting clothes- track suit it is! #monday #letsdothis
  • The privilege and blessing it is to be their mommy is one I don’t take for granted ever. They were each worth the years of heartache. Today is always an emotional one for me so today I say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms - the first time moms, the seasoned ones, the mommy’s in waiting, the hurting ones, the grieving one wether that be from the loss of a mom or a loss of a baby/child, to the foster mamas, to the bonus moms to the adoptive mommy’s and the birth moms - I am thinking of you today and I hope you feel love and valued because you are!
  • As a mommy I find myself often times so proud to be the mommy of my little people. I remember being proud when they slept through the night or took their first steps. The older they get the more proud I am of them not necessarily when they simply accomplish a task or master a skill but when they make choices that show their true character. This girl had another gymnastics competition today and she was feeling all kinds of nerves but as she told her brother and sister “I just went out there and did it” and that she did. I was so proud of her not just for being brave or not just because she put lots of work into learning her skills and ended up placing in each event she competed in but because my 6 year old was awarded the sportsmanship trophy for the ages 7-9 in the competition. That to me as her mama made me cry and beam with pride. My girl out there with a positive attitude encouraging the other athletes and competing in a kind and fair manner that’s what it’s all about to this mama. I can take no credit for her awards or her trophy today she earned them all but I sure am proud and not afraid to say it. I love you #graylynnhope and I’m proud to be your mama not just today but everyday!
  • Easter behind us (already) May is coming and dare I say summer is on its way... I’m pretty sure end of school will be here literally before I know it and I’m ok with that but lots of exciting things in store for the next little while and these little people make it all worth it.
  • Monday’s mantra! (And everyday) If we all where a little kinder think how different the world would be! Kindness always wins!
