Stranger – Danger

posted Tuesday, November 26, 2019

by: in Parenting

It is not something I like to think about, but with two little ones it’s becoming more and more necessary to stranger-proof the boys. This can be one of your constant fears as a parent, yet you have to be vigilant not to let that turn you into an anxious helicopter parent. The danger is […]

Kissing Like Gord Downie

posted Monday, October 7, 2019

by: in Parenting

I have read that the late Gord Downie (1964-2017) of The Tragically Hip said I love you…a lot. He apparently was also a lip kisser, similar to our family. We always said hello, goodbye, and sometimes goodnight with a kiss. My sweet little Gentleman still doesn’t mind a lip smooch, but as he is eight and […]

What is it about Ferris wheels that bring out the kid in me? This weekend The Ginger Gent and I paid a visit, two in fact, to The Taste of the Danforth. Since the tragic events of last summer it seems like even more important to stand up and be counted with our community. As […]

Hello Ginger Gent fans, long time no post. Grade 2 is rapidly reaching a close and I have to say it has been one heck of an academic year. When The Gent came home after the first day of school, having spent it with his new teacher who is actually a supply that stayed on […]

Weird Science

by: in Parenting

So I love to be proven wrong. Well, no I don’t actually, but sometimes I must admit it has come in useful. Grade one for The Gent was a bit of a struggle, what with focusing on all of the issues that were making things difficult academically. Now however with another great teacher and some […]

posted Wednesday, October 3, 2018

by: in Parenting

How am I going to do a post on “Fight Club” if the first rule is that we can’t talk about it? So before you call child services let me assure you this post will be totally age appropriate and also, NOT ripe with references to Brad Pitt.  I enrolled The Ginger Gentleman in this […]

Well it has happened. After a weekend of health issues stemming from food sensitivities The Gent and I sat down for a bowl of fresh fruit this morning. Sounds nice doesn’t it?

Learning to Fall

posted Tuesday, May 29, 2018

by: in Parenting

It may be comfortable in the middle, but I have repeatedly learned that “life” is at the edge. It’s quite pleasant to coast, but at some point the middle is just not going to get you where you want to go, and it can start to run the gambit of very limiting to downright shitty. […]
