Canadian-ish.

Hey girls. Sit on the step and look at me for a picture real quick. Ok, no. Look at me. You can go see the cat in a second. Just look here. Just sit down there next to your sister for one second and look at me. After this one, Fiona pipes up with a […]

Because that is the way my life is.

Today we all woke up on time and happy. It would not last. Within the hour I was in full-on beast mode, trying to round up everyone’s socks and shoes and tutus and backpacks as we prepared for school/dance class, screaming classic mom-isms like “Close your mouth and eat your cereal!!!

Mother of the Year, obviously.
