Where to from here?

I am almost not sure whether to post this, but since I have found myself in a few awkward situations, I feel I must say something. 2 1/2 weeks ago we left for our vacation up north, in the country. Earlier that morning I had my regular monthly check up with my OBGYN. I knew… Continue reading Where to from here?

Scare tactics and parenting

Look, I know I am wrong. But I am also really desperate.  I have adorable kids - I really do. I love them with all my heart - really. Tonight's blog is dedicated to one of them. My little Miss G. She is a terror. We call her KB - from the movie Kill Bill.… Continue reading Scare tactics and parenting

Child labor. For or against?

I had a very busy week last week. I also averaged about 4 hours of proper sleep a night. To say that I was exhausted was an understatement. I was really looking forward to shabbos. No guests, I could just sleep the day away. I spoke to my kids very explicitly. " Mommy is VERY… Continue reading Child labor. For or against?

My challenging morning

aaaaargh. I have a   situation on my hands that I have to admit, has grown legs, mutated, and I feel is way bigger than me. Once again, I was woken up, or shall we say jolted out of bed this morning, at a cheery 5:42am. It would not have been so bad, had I not gone to… Continue reading My challenging morning

A time for thanks

I really appreciate those moments when nothing major is going on. Nothing earth-shatteringly wonderful, that you throw your eyes up to the heavens and beam a huge, transcendental 'thank-you' to G-d. It's moments like yesterday, when discussing the fact that I am hosting a shabbaton for 20 girls, and then a fund-raiser that night, and… Continue reading A time for thanks

I live in a snow globe

Hope you all like my new special effects. 'Tis the season - you know. But let me tell you - I am not so jolly. When I first came to Montreal and experienced the snow, it was December. It was not too cold. Everything was white. I was madly in love, and my first excursion… Continue reading I live in a snow globe

sorry for my leave of absence

Hi all Firstly I would like to thank all those of you who have inquired as to what happened to my blog. I suppose I did the unthinkable in blogland. I took some time off. I know the rules. Always something new. Always something fresh. Well, truth is ( besides my computer having been back… Continue reading sorry for my leave of absence

how sweet….

In case it took a while to realise what this picture was - I had the same reaction when I came home from Zumba the other night! I had to laugh. This epitomizes my 2 year old's personality. I just wonder who she was envisioning while stabbing the kiwi to death. I am going to… Continue reading how sweet….

Be careful what you wish for…

Been doing some thinking today. You see - I am very aware of complaining, as I am  of praying.  The power of each one. And really they are inextricably the same thing. Ever since I was a little girl, I can remember to - as far back as I can remember - praying to G-d… Continue reading Be careful what you wish for…

Do as I say….

Chomp, Chomp, mmm... 1am and I am sorry to say, I have not  kept to all my intended health commitments. I know I said I was starting my anti inflammatory diet today, but that was before I knew my day would turn out to be  another day, not at home, and therefore had to succumb… Continue reading Do as I say….
