Outside my window...SNOW SNOW and More SNOW

I am thinking.....that I should probably get off the computer and cook supper or go to the gym.

I am thankful for... Jack, Kim, My Pooches, My family, Friends, Health, 1 year maternity leave, everything I could ever want I have and more.


I am wearing.....lululemon from head to toe

I am going... to a family night at a school tonight with a new awesome friend and hopefully to Saskatoon tomorrow if the weather cooperates.

I am reading... MAGAZINES. Bought a photography one today!

I am hoping... I get to Saskatoon safely tomorrow.

I am hearing... TV on in the background.

Around the house... clutter from me. everywhere I go I tend to leave a trail behind.

One of my favorite things... making Jack smile. Kissing Jack and just loving him up in general.


I cannot wait for....my NEW BLOG to be done!!!!!

Teaching a baby





Since it is Jack's 1st Christmas and he is too young to really know what is up I was hoping I could get some educational stuff for him. I have no idea where to begin or what to get. It is mind blowing to realize that I am responsible for teaching him everything he knows from now until he enters the school. As a teacher I know how important it is to be involved in your child's education. Learning and development happen outside the classroom and if you give your child a strong foundation they will be that much better off when they do begin school. I have seen many kids whose parents just leave it all up to the school system to teach their children and it is really quite sad. If anyone has any suggestions for good quality educational products for babies please let me know!

Excercise DVD's









My husband and I bought a new TV stand for our TV which meant I had to organize my portion of the DVD's. I took a quick snapshot of the one's I currently own....I think it is about 30. Oh and I just ordered another one today. Starting next week when I return from Saskatoon I will be starting a 10 day challenge. I must do one exercise DVD a day for 10 days. I will review each DVD as I do them. I am looking forward to getting the one I ordered today because it is a baby and me DVD which will give Jack and I something to do during the day while we are cooped up inside. I sometimes feel bad that I do not entertain him enough. Do you have any suggestions for indoor activities to do with 12 week old babies? We usually go from playing to the swing to his play may to his bouncy chair and do that rotation a few times a day. The poor little guy must be bored. Oh wait I do random photo shoots with him where I make him wear crazy things like a pet Santa hat, beads and throw random Xmas tree balls on him!!!

On another note I thought I would include the only picture Jack will ever have of his mommy and him in his 3 months of existence as my husband is not good at picking up the camera to take shots of us at all. He only seems to get the idea when I have not showered and look like complete crap. This photo was taken after I went to the gym and was a sweaty mess but oh well!!!

I had to include a picture of Ruby because she is too sweet. I really would love to get another pooch. One her breed and age so she has someone to play with. Benji just does not play well with her and he is grouchy and growls at her sweet face:(

The bottom 2 DVD's are one's I would maybe like to order but I am not sure. If anyone out there has tried them please let me know. I have a couple of Tracy Anderson DVD's and they are a bit ridiculous but maybe this one will be good?
