It's in the best interest of our children to have a civil, if not cooperative, relationship with their other parent(s), but it is also important to build effective communication between both sides.
Ex-etiquette as a parent is challenging to navigate. Every once in a while you see a family who totally got it right and you just want to shout to the world, “Why is this so hard?!”
Have a fun-filled playdate with your tot at Halifax's Discovery Centre.
It is ironic to me that most people would refer to me as a mommy blogger. I am a mother and I blog about motherhood, but I just don't think it fits.
If you have ever stood in line for an hour amongst impatient children and their devoted parents, you know how trying a visit to Santa can be. Sit on Santa's lap or watch him in Halifax's Santa Claus Parade.
Here's my latest post, a little twist on my storytelling to my children at bedtime.
My daughter's experiences with bullying are more difficult to tell than my own. Not necessarily because they were worse, but because they really are not my stories to share. I can only give the viewpoint of mother.
My workshop at Chester Art Centre gave me lots of food for thought regarding self-portraiture as a means of meditating on particular emotions. Here I am trying to capture my reflection on motherhood and what it means to me.
