You can add chicken breast or for vegetarians, chick peas would taste yummy in this farro salad. Ingredients 2 cups of farro, cooked al dente 1 handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half 1 handful of mint, chopped 1 handful of basil, torn 1 handful of parsley, chopped 1 handful of pistachios, chopped 4 radish, […]

Labels for Bins I printed out the general contents of each bin onto white paper, then used Noah’s lately-favorite “Thomas & Friend” wrapping paper that we weren’t using, as […]

    We live in Toronto by the Lakeshore (which in our case means west of downtown along Lake Ontario). The closest park to our home is via a wonderful endless boardwalk with trails for bikes and bladers, and a separate boardwalk for pedestrian traffic. It’s only a 5-minute walk to the swings and slides and kids’ paradise, and across the boardwalk is the sandy area before you hit the water – err, I’ll be clear here, we don’t exactly swim in Lake Ontario, although some do […]

    toddler activity

    Following a hot tip for toddler and infant activities, this is probably one of the simplest mom-crafts to prep and take down. How To Something tells me you have these 4 items in your own home: 1 paper towel roll or 2 toilet paper rolls masking tape a bucket or plastic container to ‘catch’ the items dropped through the roll items to drop into the roll (rocks or pom-poms or use your imagination!) The image pretty much explains the set-up : Tape the roll or […]

    There is so much information out there. So much fluff. Your brain is full. Emotions out of whack. You don’t know how you feel. Life before you became a Mom seems like an eternity ago. You wonder, “why didn’t I relish the freedom I had at the time, rather than worrying about petty things and procrastinating?” And you barely remember what those petty – or importantly massive – ‘things’ were!
