Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind. 


Overheard: Signs Your Kids Are Playing Too Much Minecraft

Yesterday was really foggy here in Ottawa. My husband was driving the older boys home from dance class around suppertime and commented on it:

DH:  "Wow guys, check out how foggy it is!" Boy#1: "Wow, it's just like Minecraft render distance 'tiny'!"

This morning, Boy#3 asked me to toast him a bagel. I popped it in the toaster and we waited for it to finish. When it popped up he became very excited:

Boy#3: "My bagel ready! It blowed up like TNT! Just yike in MINECRAFT!"

Not to be left out, Boy#2 went to school sporting an "Anatomy of a Creeper" t-shirt.. ;)
