Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Robin Hood Childrens Theatre Rocks!

On Friday December 7th, I saw  “Robin Hood: A new-ish take on the old tale“, written by Paula Wing and presented by  Geordie Productions.  Robin Hood is playing at the Centaur Theatre from December 7th to 16th.  This excellent new childrens theatre production tells the classic tale of Robin Hood, a former rich man who steals from the rich and gives to the poor.  Robin Hood and his merry band create a community in Sherwood Forest that offers shelter, food [...]

A ROARR of a Good Time at The Zoo

What a fantastic summer it was!  My boys and I have enjoyed many hours at the park, in the pool, playing sports and visiting with friends.  The highlight of this summer though has definitely been our weekly visits to Granby Zoo!  This summer, we purchased a season pass to Granby Zoo for the boys and me!  It was a great investment!  Not only did we have a ROARRR of a good time, we are left with wonderful memories of great [...]

Mums & Tots Had a Farm Day…E-I-E-I-O!

For the past 5 years, I have been part of an amazing Mom group, Mums & Tots of Brossard. Parents and our kids get together at a community centre several times a week for kids playtime, crafts and stories/sing-a-longs (and much needed adult conversation!).  Throughout the year, we have several outings.  Mums & Tots of Brossard just had our annual Farm Day, an outing to Ferme Guyon. Some of the best days I spent with my boys were at these [...]

Inch by Inch, Row by Row…Gonna Make this Garden Grow!

Gardening + Kids go together like peanut butter and jam…or should I say a rake and hoe (who you calling a hoe!)! Kids are curious, like to learn by doing, and love to play in the dirt.1  Gardening with your kids is an excellent way to teach children where our food comes from, as well as encourage environmental awareness by learning how nature works.  More importantly, it offers endless hours of outdoor fun you and your child can share together!

Hi Ho Hi Ho, its Off to Camp They GO!

Hi Ho Hi Ho…it’s off to camp they go!

As the snow begins to melt, kids in Montreal start to get excited because Spring Break is just around the corner! Some lucky kids will be hopping on planes to hit a warm, sandy beach! Others will be hitting the slopes at a snazzy ski resort.  Most kids though, will be staying closer to home. Thankfully, there are so many great Spring Break Camps for kids in Montreal; offered, adventure [...]

Mommy on the Move!

I do not usually make New Year’s resolutions. 2012, however, is going to be the year that I make healthier choices. I am going to try to eat better. I am also going to get more physically active!
I have been using my status as “a new mom’’ as an excuse for not eating well or exercising. Sleepless nights, new schedules and work…these are things that affect diet and exercise. 1 The thing is, I am not “a new mom’’ anymore. [...]

To Clip or Not to Clip…..

A coupon hunting frenzy has been spurred south of the border, following last year’s premiere of Extreme Couponing.  The second season began  this September and it has us wanting the scoop on Extreme Couponing for Canadians!  We love our kids so much, but they are EXPENSIVE!  Any way we can save money is a bonus!!!

Extreme couponing is much more profitable in the U.S. than it is in Canada.  We just don’t have the abundance of coupons that they have. It [...]

KNEAD Money? Bake Bread!

 

It takes a village to raise a child…and a lot of money!  We want our kids to have as many experiences and opportunities as possible.  We want them to participate in fun kids activities such as sports (hockey, soccer, camps); learn to play an instrument (piano, guitar, drums…block your ears) ; paint, dance…the list is endless.  However, there is often a price tag attached!  According to the Canadian Council on Social Development, “…the cost of raising a daughter to age [...]
