To All The Moms

Motherhood is hard. Sleepless nights, countless heartbreak, being a doctor, chef, maid, therapist, encyclopedia, the list goes on.. while trying to remain a normal human and keep yourself going. It’s hard and a task mothers take on with such grace. I am so thankful to all the moms in the world for being a safeContinue reading “To All The Moms”

A home of our own

We bought a house! Well actually, we bought some land, which we’re building a house on. But nonetheless it’s ours, even though at this point it’s merely soil and bricks. So we actually bought it a while ago, we had been thinking about it a lot and found a beautiful opportunity and decided to doContinue reading “A home of our own”


‘Oh my baby falls asleep the second I start driving.’ ‘The humm of the car puts my newborn right to sleep.’ These are things you would never hear my husband or I say. Why you ask, because our son HATES the car. It isn’t a phase (everyone has told us this) it is sheer torture forContinue reading “NOT THE CAR!”

I’m Lost

This February marks 6 consecutive years since I’ve been living abroad.  In those 6 years I’ve managed to go ‘home’ to Vancouver once or twice each year.

Our first big flight with little O wasContinue reading “Baby on the move “

Where to sleep?

Okay, full disclosure, we co-sleep and I love it! I know, I know, it’s horrible, the worst thing I could do for my child. He’ll get dependent on it. I’ll have to have him in our bed forever. -I’ve heard it all! But in the end it works for us, so I don’t need toContinue reading “Where to sleep?”

The smartest person in the room

A month ago I was inspired by a holiday themed post about how to deal with family over the holidays. It noted that the quietest person is often the smartest, which really got my wheels turning. I sat back, thought about it, and had to dive in a little deeper. I thought about the people I know fromContinue reading “The smartest person in the room”

Pregnancy Diet

As I have mentioned in this post, I was on a strict diet (calorie counting and no alcohol or carbs) nearly right up until I got pregnant. Therefore, I knew that if I started eating everything in sight I would gain a significant amount of weight during my pregnancy. During the first 2 months IContinue reading “Pregnancy Diet”
