We Thought We Could Avoid It!

We thought we could hide and avoid it! We couldnt hide behind Walker's owls either - we went two years without getting it. It was unfortunately our time.

Surprise! He's Starting to Thrive!

One of our twins (known as Twin A) Walker was born at 4 pounds 1 ounce which was 1 pound 6 ounces smaller than his brother Conrad. The weight difference is now 7+ pounds. Due to his congenital heart disease we spent the first portion of 9 weeks in the NICU to deal with his fast breathing due to Tetralogy of Fallot. While in the hospital he had a moment where all of the monitors went off, alarms ringing and dinging and all I could do is walk away.

You Asked for It! My -48 lb Journey Part 1: How I Got There

Having four babies and twins definitely puts a toll on your body! It’s been hard to concentrate on myself, the way I feel and the way I look over the past few years, combined with the sudden loss of our 19 month old daughter Stella.

I Get Flashbacks.

I thought I'd share a few thoughts this evening. It's been a while since I've blogged, not because I don't want to but life has been crazy, it always is. I decided instead of worrying about taking more time to make the words perfect, I'd simply put some words down and roll with it.

How to Do It All (or at least try to)

I’ve added a new responsibility to my parenting role job description, a career.  I work full-time, I commute over 100 kilometres a day, I’m a Wife, I’m a Mom. And I’m trying to make it all work.

Here is how to do it all, or at least try to.
We have bumps, bruises, full wet diapers but a lot of love and fun in this household!

How my Twin Toddlers are Adapting to Childcare

This post was created in partnership with Kids & Company.

Sending your little ones off to childcare is a rite of passage all working families experience at some point in time. After spending a busy 14 months with my twin boys, it was time for me to return to work, outside of the home.
