Vie de bébé — Baby’s life


Chicken pox, or how to survive a toddler with severe itchiness.

That’s it, I’ve had it for today! I just locked myself in the bathroom to get a bit of peace. My toddler is driving me crazy! He’s getting back into tantrums and being a little brat, that means he’s getting better…. “Better, why was he sick” you ask. Let me explain: He has CHICKEN POX! … Continue Reading


My little genius

Ok, so I’m boasting here, I know, but check it out, my son is not being pushed to do anything he doesn’t want. True true! I swear, we just let him be. If we were pushy we’d be teaching him the piano or the guitar right now, because hey, most parents want their kid to … Continue Reading

Ahhh, here it is, THE post about the topic most people give me shit for! BATH PRODUCTS. Yes, I’m a bath product junky. But not any bath products. I’m obsessed with natural products.

Now … Continue Reading

Boring friday note

See if maybe Anissa Mayhew has made progress (this sucks, and I don’t even know her! She’s had a couple strokes and is fighting to survive)…. … Continue Reading

"I wish I knew…", tantrum edition


I loved the post at My Bottle’s up on post-pregnancy body issues, and the comments it generated… So in the spirit of this and mostly in honor of it, this is my list of what I wished people had told me about tantrums: I wish I’d known about the really high pitch shrieks! I wish … Continue Reading

Flu links– Liens sur la grippe


Alors voila la panique est installée, on ne peut plus tousser dans le métro sans que tout le monde se retourne pour vous faire de la place. Quand je dis que je ne fais pas vacciner mes enfants et nous non plus, on me regarde d’un air bizarre ou on me dit que je suis … Continue Reading

Coliques — Colic


My son had colic for 4 months… Meaning he cried most of the day, though strangely enough he was a good sleeper at night and slept through the night a 2 months old. I tried what seems to be everything at the time. I stopped drinking and eating any form of dairy products, soy products, … Continue Reading
