Back to reality. As snow is reported all over Ontario I am contemplating our last day in The Magic Kingdom. I know it will be a great day. We are going for a second spin on some rides we loved like The Haunted Mansion and the Tomorrow Land Speedway where The Ginger Gent got to steer […]

Wish You Were Here

So did I say the Ginger Gent and I were going to Disney World? ‘Cause we are! We rolled out mid day on Friday bound for the border. With many a “are we there yet??” we made it to our stop-over and collapsed into a hotel bed. By Saturday we were driving through John Denver […]

Transition

Trans: from the Latin meaning across, beyond or through. Thinking about this word in the current state of our family I have to smirk and say no, we are not across, beyond or through with anything! We packed up everything we owned and moved into our new house but no, we have not fully made […]

Mom Says We’re Moving

I was going to do a post about change being the same as loss, and loss as being like a dust bunny that picks up past loss as it’s rolling around under the couch. Then I thought I need to change the way I talk about change. Fear and excitement are both great motivators. They […]

White Wash

Hmmm. How do I explain white privilege to my ginger and very very white son in a way he can understand? How about why is the “flesh colour” in a crayon box only indicative of one type of flesh? Why might someone in school or at work who is of a different race be asked […]

Maybe it’s The bizarre weather that has suddenly yielded to sunshine? Maybe it’s the fact that the barometric pressure has stabilized (no more headaches.) Maybe it was our recent trip to the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls? Whichever one you pick I have been fantasizing about flowers. For the last five years my son and […]

The New: Ginger Gent

posted Monday, May 1, 2017

by: in Parenting

My son is six. My son is a little less ginger and a bit more auburn. I know how all of that happened, as I was there to watch it, but sometimes you have to change you before the things around you can change as well. When I started writing The Ginger Menace for PinkPlayMags […]

Batteries Included

I may have been a tad self serving just now.  However shit does need to get done and sometimes the universe just accommodates you.  I have been meaning to clean out the cupboard under the sink for way longer than I care to admit. I have also been chucking used batteries under there for almost as […]

Obsolete Stork

“Where did I come from?” I used to think that would be the most complicated question. That was back when I was a grown up. My mind was doing backflips before the first conversation, but I was relieved to find this was an amazing opportunity to communicate. It is an easier concept when it is applied in simple terms, […]

Over-Stimulation

posted Monday, January 2, 2017

by: in Parenting

There are all kind of hangovers, and it’s not just that last glass of Cabernet that did you in. Gratitude and good times are enjoyable, but hosting/attending a party or meal is stressful even if it is a good one. The holidays are intense and emotional, and we all at one point run out of steam. As […]
