100 Happy Days – Day 33: Pink Snowsuit

Posted on December 3rd, 2014

This morning after taking E to the bus with me, AB thought she’d visit our neighbour’s driveway. She even ventured all the way to his front steps. I asked if she was going to come inside with me or go live with Steve. She said nonchalantly, “Yep. I’m gonna go live with Steve.” After a few minutes, she […]

100 Happy Days – Day 3: Cuties in Costumes

Posted on November 3rd, 2014

Hoping my technical difficulties might take a coffee break, I’m attempting to backpublish a post from… several days ago. (I wouldn’t want you to think that Jian Ghomeshi had completely quashed the possibility of happy days.) Here’s some happy from Day 3, even though they’re pics from October 31st. Because they can make me smile any day […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #19: Tennis Style

Posted on June 13th, 2014

So. Biggest hiatus ever in the history of this blog. Jeepers. Suffice it to say I’ve been itching to write  – oh, so many posts in my head – but was away for a whole week at leadership camp (MOTL) and returned home just in time for my firstborn’s fifth birthday (as yet herein uncommemorated! […]

DIY Tie-Dye Jamboree! Shirts, shoes, and a jillion tiny socks.

Posted on May 24th, 2014

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been attracted to things that are tie-dyed. I love the fluid shapes and patterns and the vibrant colours. Fortunately for me, tie-dyed clothing is one of the 80s trends I like that came back! (Along with some that make me wince a little, such as crimped hair.) I […]

Toddler Tracks: Baby AB and the Amazing Technicolour Accessories (Fashion Blog #18)

Posted on April 10th, 2014

It’s weird think back to AB’s infancy, when she WOULD NOT STAND FOR HATS. Any hat we wrangled onto her would be off in seconds. Now, it’s the opposite. Anything that could possibly be construed as a hat will be worn; if it doesn’t work as a hat, it goes around the neck. And then […]

Freezing and Thawing and Partying

Posted on January 5th, 2014

It’s been a memorable holiday season. Christmas that was both black(out) and crazily white… So much awesome family… Yummy food and festive music… Gratuitous cuteness….  Now here we are. Gearing up to go back to school and normal life tomorrow, while also battening down for another storm. Bracing for back-to-school germs, now that both kids […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #17: Cozy

Posted on November 20th, 2013

It’s getting cold these days, and it smells like winter out there. Here are some warm and snuggly fashions… from the last time it was cold (so, like, half a lifetime ago for the model in question). *** Related Posts:Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #2: “Paris Daisy”Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue # 16: […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue # 16: Party Dress

Posted on October 29th, 2013

We’ve had some festive times lately, and I do tend to milk those, fashion-wise, when it comes to Baby AB. The wedding in Cape Cod was obviously an important opportunity to wear this pink gingham with satin roses. The dress being sleeveless – and Cape Cod being quite windy – we added the sweater (beautifully […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #15: “Summer” Theatrics

Posted on September 16th, 2013

Last week, the weather showed us how flexible it can be in September. On Tuesday it was 34C (93F), feeling like 42C (108F) with the humidity. (Inside my school, ’twas even hotter.) So although school has started, we were reminded that IT IS STILL SUMMER, Y’ALL. Then a few days later, it got down to […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #14: Salmon and Carmine

Posted on August 26th, 2013

When we were kids, we had one jillion pencil crayons, courtesy of my dad. Mostly Laurentians and Prismacolors. They were kept in three old sorbet containers, one for warm colours, one for cool colours, and one for neutrals. We spent a lot of time colouring, and knew well the nuances of Deep Yellow versus Lemon […]
