The Importance of Family Photos


photo credit: Mondays With Mac Photography

Many months ago, I wrote a post about preparing a chemotherapy package for a loved one. What I didn't mention at the time, that the reason I put it together was that my father in law had just been diagnosed with cancer.

As the months went on, I remembered that my in laws had talked about wanting to have some family photos done. It didn't end up happening at the time, but in the summer I spoke with my mother in law to see if she wanted to do them now.

Introducing Kids To The World Of Blogging

When I started blogging, I never thought it would take me to where we are today. I didn't even think anyone would read the blog outside of my family and a few close friends.  Fast forward 10 years - and I was asked to be a guest speaker in a class.

Mr. J's teacher had a project in mind for his grade 5/6 class this year, and asked for my feedback on it. He wanted the class to have a blog, with the kids being the authors of it.  Along with Chris from Canadian Dad, I went in a couple of weeks ago to talk to the kids about the world of blogging. How Tales of Mommyhood started, opportunities that have arisen because of the blog and to answer questions that they may have.

North Star Award



Last year, Mr. K joined Beavers. He started a little bit late, but he knew one of the other kids, and 2 of the scouters. He really enjoyed the activities that they did (participating in the Santa Claus parade, fun at the meetings, hikes, museum tours etc).

Happy Thanksgiving 2018


Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians. I hope that at some point over the weekend you were able to enjoy a nice meal with family and friends.

Yesterday, hubby and I took the kids apple picking and out for breakfast. It was a little bit chilly at the orchard, but it didn't stop us from enjoying it. We had some nice family time while searching for the best apples on the trees, and then picked up the most delicious apple cider donuts at the end. It's actually the highlight of our apple picking adventures every year.

We went to my aunts house for dinner, it was a lovely meal and I always enjoy our family time together.
