posted Monday, December 13, 2021

by: in The Online Politician

Hi Pigeon! Times are changing, and I must wonder if big media keeping up with the changing times? You are sitting there saying to yourself, “What do you mean Geri?” We have companies hiring Diversity and Inclusion Managers, we have slogans like “ALL IN EQUITY,” we have demands on companies to be more inclusive, with […]

posted Thursday, February 18, 2021

by: in Parenting

Privacy. In general terms it is the right to be left alone, free from interference or intrusion. This March the Gent turns the big 1-0, and privacy is a topic in this house. Functioning as a family of four with Erin and her ginger son during the pandemic has made things better. The kids have […]

So last time I posted it was about how I was going to engineer parenting during a pandemic and coming out sane on the other end. Now I am writing a post about coming out grateful on the other end. Of course, I am so grateful that I live in Canada with a liberal government […]

Parenting the Pandemic

posted Wednesday, April 8, 2020

by: in Parenting

So I took the kids to a graveyard today. Yup, you heard what I said. We had a great time, there were big rolling hills for The Gent to scooter down, gravestone names to be read, and some time in the morning to kill. No pun intended. However I should back up a bit, as […]

Supporting “Out of the Cold” Foundation Over The Holiday Season

posted Thursday, December 26, 2019

by: in Parenting

So the Ginger Gent and I have a tradition. As I have not had my full driver’s licence, we have always transported our Christmas tree via the TTC. It had to be light enough for mommy to carry it, and tied up well enough not to whack any innocent bystanders on the bus. Riding a […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Ginger Gent is Seeing Double!

posted Friday, September 7, 2018

by: in Parenting

Happy September from the Ginger Gentleman! If you are like us you’ll be wondering where the heck the summer got to this year. It may have felt super short, but in that time our family has been super productive. Besides the fact that The Gent grew two inches, he also processed some challenging new realities. […]
