Party of six?!?!

I was just scrolling through my insta feed when one of the handles had "... party of six" as part of their handle. I thought wow, that's something... wait... that's my family! Eleanor is still little so I've yet to say party of six, plus taking 4 kids, under 4.5, anywhere where they'd need to... Continue Reading →

Two months!

It's hard to believe we're a week away from having a 2 month old, a 17 month old, an almost 3.5 year old, and a 4.5 year old! Everyone is doing well! Including me and JD. Not everyday is easy, but we've got a good routine starting and all the kids are getting a good... Continue Reading →

Country Heat workout

30 day ago I started Country Heat. It's a Beachbody On Demand workout program. I'm happy to say I've completed it (well mostly), as a jump off point back into fitness. I say mostly, because I stared back at it when Eleanor was 3 weeks old, so I took it easy, and ramped up as... Continue Reading →


As you know, we do a lot of reading in our house. I believe in the research that shows how important reading is for young children. As you also know, we've been working on Hazel starting to read. She's still not super excited about it, which seems strange to me, but I can get her... Continue Reading →


Two days a week, my neighbour's daughter comes over and helps with the kids. I usually send them to the park and then she hangs out for lunch or play doh or whatever! She's fantastic. She has been babysitting the kids since Hazel was just a baby. She's more like a big sister and we... Continue Reading →


Hazel has a thing about braids at the moment. She likes to braid, she likes her hair braided, just braids, braids, braids! Yesterday morning Hazel decided she wanted to braids, a bow and then another braid (or so I thought). I came up with this: Apparently, I misunderstood. As until the pictures were shown to...

Naps are needed

Oh if only I could get all my kids to nap! It's a successful day if 2 nap at the same time. Yesterday, three, that's right three, napped at the same time! Jenni, Martin and Eleanor. What an exciting day!

Cloth Diapers with 2 kids, again…

One of the reason JD and I decided to have kids close together was to never get out of the diapering phase. Little did we know, Hazel and Jennifer had different plans. Hazel fully potty trained by 2.5 and Jenni was done before she was 19 months - disclaimer, we had nothing to do with... Continue Reading →

Eat outside!

One of my favourite things about this time of year is everything can be done outside. Like, eating! And that means less clean up inside. Whether a warm day like today or a rainy day, we have options to eat outside if we want! The great big carport makes that possible. So the girls get... Continue Reading →
