The Ginger Gent

Banana-Lanche

posted Friday, November 11, 2016

by: in Parenting

They always go bad. By bad I mean bananas. And by bananas I mean the nine of them that have been squatting in my freezer for the last five months. I feel like it’s a very Feng Shui thing to say, but they represented a pile of baking I had not done yet. The tumbling banana-lanche […]

Gratitude

posted Thursday, October 27, 2016

by: in Parenting

“Wait” the Menace waved his hands before our meal commenced. “We have to do gratitude!” We use gratitude as an adjective and I have tried to communicate a lot of fundamental things by incorporating it into our sometimes hellish meals (which now seem to help.) However that day he called me out. I obediently put down […]

That Parent

posted Friday, September 16, 2016

by: in Parenting

The Ginger Menace certainly lived up to his reputation this summer. Labour Day weekend he was mad at me because I would not let him put Pokemon Go on my phone (cringe). I made a well thought out argument and remained firm.  I thought the conversation was over and I took out the garbage.  When I came back […]

Strong Healed Heart – Narrative Workshop Series

posted Monday, August 29, 2016

by: in Parenting

Peoples stories fascinate me, but there is one story that I never knew until 2009 when I reconnected with Laura my biological mom. While visiting her house for the first time I got an opportunity to reflect on the things that make storytelling a vital act of self expression. As I am on the verge […]

Good Job Mom!

posted Tuesday, May 3, 2016

by: in Parenting

There are a number of phrases that The Menace has taken on, that I love. Like during his Peter Pan phase when everything was “mom, it’s a booby trap!” My heart skips a beat every time he randomly says “I love you mom” but I am inclined to be proud of myself when he says […]

Dragons Love Tacos

by: in Parenting

At some point in history someone said variety is the spice of life. Well I say poo. I say bring on nailing down some staples so that your kid will actually eat at dinner time, then variety comes next. Variety comes after he finishes gobbling something up when we are guests, but then acting like it’s […]

Step Aside Son

by: in Parenting

So The Ginger Menace and I have opened the doors to a familiar bereavement ridden friend, Captain Grief. The same way I birthed my little superhero over a 42hr period, similarly I brought forth this bawling, dirty mouthed being and wrote my blog The High Flying Adventures of Captain Grief! The Menace is not too pleased. When she […]

by: in Parenting

Roseneath Theatre is at it again. And when I say at it I mean putting on another fantastic production aimed at kids, but this time conquering bullying and homophobia. I am proud to say that after a successful integration of the concept of money, particularly after taking The Ginger Menace to see The Money Tree […]

Review: “The Money Tree” – A Fun Filled Family Production

posted Sunday, March 6, 2016

by: in Parenting

When The Ginger Menace and I rolled up to The Roseneath Theatre I was not sure what to expect, therefore I was blown away by the scene we were greeted with. The folks at Roseneath sure know how to put on a kid friendly party! First we were met by a wide variety of items for the […]

Let It Go

posted Thursday, March 3, 2016

by: in Parenting

I don’t often win, but when I do I consider it a triumph. The challenge; trying to gently make my child understand that he has to share even with me,  balanced with my need to keep the peace and enjoy the payoff, which is an enjoyable evening.  The occasion; movie night. I often contemplate the fact […]
