Classic parenting

Salts

We work so hard to make them confident and independent people and then they go and show that’s what they want to be and I immediately want to time travel back to when she used to hold out her arms and say “Up-y up-y” cause she really needed me. Classic.

The “W” is gone…

tween no more

I now have only teenagers in my house… how does the time go by so quickly? And where is all the food in my fridge, and my car keys, and…

Harmony and Balance

work vs play

Evening dog walks are a great time for wisdom….

its snowing

True conversation, with a window nearby…

throwup

A parent’s day is always full of surprises…

It’s called growing up…

Ahhhh September with your cooler air, fall colours and incessant-punch-to-the-face scheduling nightmare.

First day of school archive

Hard to believe 7 years ago this was the scene playing out as we dropped our son off for grade 1. Today, my grade 8’er zoomed away on his bike with a wave and a smile, and my grade 10’er got picked up by a friend.

The days are long but the years are short. Enjoy the ride.
