Toddler Tracks: Baby AB and the Snackalicious Journey

Dear Baby AB, Here’s another chapter of the Chronicles of You at One Year and a Half. This one’s about food! You and food have a great relationship. I’m really glad I read Child of Mine by Ellyn Satter (thank you, Leslie) and Baby-Led Weaning by Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett (thank you, Megan) before you started solid food, because […]

International Day of Happiness

Hey there, lovely Di-hards, Will you help me write a blog post? Today is International Day of Happiness, as decided by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012. I have to admit, when I heard this mentioned on the radio yesterday, in the same newscast as Malaysia Airlines, Crimea, and the winter that just won’t end, it felt… awkward. It […]

Toddler Tracks: Baby AB and the Power of Toddling

Dear Baby AB, Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve written of your exploits here, even though – or perhaps because – you’re continually astonishing. There is so much to catch up on! At the end of this month, you will be a year-and-a-half old. Eighteen months. That’s big. The first thing I guess I have to concede is: […]

Freezing and Thawing and Partying

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 are finally almost done coughing […]

A Little Night Weaning

November was obviously a banner month for Barely Blogging At All. Sigh. I’d like to say that it’s because my other project was progressing in leaps and bounds, but I’m afraid that’s not the case either. What there HAS been: some serious sleep issues – for all of us. Especially me. So today, I’m thrilled to present “A Little Night […]

Celebrating One Year of Baby AB

Dear Baby AB, It’s hard to believe it’s already, and only, been a year since you came on the scene in person. The night I laboured with you, so many people could hardly wait to for you to arrive. There were people scattered across the city, the province, the continent, who were thrilled to hear about you, but none more […]

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

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 almost freezing at night. What […]

Preschooler No More

11:36 a.m. Dear E, Today is your first full day of kindergarten – JK. I am sitting here fervently wishing I were a fly on the wall of your classroom. Are you having fun? Are you nervous about anything? Did (do) you like your first recess? Are the other kids nice? Have you eaten any of your lunch? Are you […]

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

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 Yellow, Dark Brown versus Photo […]
