A New Gen of Men

I was at the hair stylist tonight with my princess; short hair in summer feels so cool! The place was quite, only our hair stylist, two colleagues of hers, and a client - a man! - were in the building. I went from surprise to surprise with this guy in his mid-30's (he told us… Continue reading A New Gen of Men

This is Hot Hot Hot!

Murphy's law is it... whatever can go wrong will? The heatwave just broke here and we are getting some much needed cooler temperature. Did you know AC units only died during heatwaves when all stores in town are sold out? Of course! This Nordic chick here thought she would pass out. I finally survived... not… Continue reading This is Hot Hot Hot!

School is Out

There is nothing new about school being out at the end of June, but this year, this is a special one. My baby just finished school as she has known it all her life.

Worrisome Time

I am not a political person. I follow politics from a distance, never in depth as I have little interest in the matter. However, I have concerns. When a leader creates tensions with allies and friends and make friends with enemies of democracy, I worry. I worry when an authority figure feels the need to… Continue reading Worrisome Time

Another Father’s Day

The world needs to see in action men who are nurturing, caring, considerate, comforting, patient, gentle, and just. It needs to see men who love sacrificially. Children need to know… Continue reading Another Father’s Day

One Prom Night

This week, little Missy has her prom night. I cannot quite believe my youngest has already finished high school! For some parents, their kids' passage from home to kindergarten, from kindergarten to elementary school, and then to high school are disturbing milestones. They were not for me. However, this one is.  In Canada, children turn… Continue reading One Prom Night

The Green-eyed Monster

Yesterday, I found out an ex-colleague of mine started a blog on part time parenthood. He is a recently separated father and he speaks of his experience. Wonderful! He wants to express his side of the story, to give a man's take on a common life event, and perhaps help others who experience the unexpected… Continue reading The Green-eyed Monster

Utterly Unimpressed

I do not bitch and moan a lot, I prefer to let things slide and go on my merry way. I have an office job, a regular 9 to 5 gig, and depending on deadlines, I am also "unofficially" on-call. In a nutshell, the soldier reports for duty anytime the general calls (and no, I… Continue reading Utterly Unimpressed

Happy Mother’s Day

Where would we be without our mothers? Mothers know... just about everything! From lessening the pain from a boo boo to curing our deadly cold, from making us behave in public to finding the grit to surpass ourselves, mothers have a magic trick for just about everything. That is to say, mothers have a lot… Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day
