If you're gonna spew...

All sisterly love ends with possible throw-up in car.
I used to (and sometimes still do) get car sick when I was younger. Colleen didn't take any chances with upset stomachs in her car. Of course she has good reason, which I will not go into now.

Cameras of Yore

I'm not a Photographer. I'm a painter, drawer, sketcher, cartoonist and animator. Not a Photographer. I know some fabulous Photographers, you put a camera in their hands and they will capture the most beautiful of moments. I know one woman who used to use a cheap little camera and she took award winning photos!
I bought my first and only camera with money I had saved from babysitting, just as digital camera's were starting to become popular. Now, everyone has a camera on their cell phones. My how technology changes. I'm still not much of a photographer though!

Tick Season

Olie had, I think, two more ticks on her throughout that summer, then we started getting some tick repellent for her and we didn't have anymore problems. Also, side note, easiest way for us to get the tick off her was to put a cloth with rubbing alcohol over it so the tick gets drunk and loosens its grip, then twist and pull.

If you are unfamiliar with the book Love You Forever by Robert Munsch, I highly suggest you read it, especially if you are expecting or already have children, so you too can weep uncontrollably by the second page.

Picks up a tune...

Koala Baby

Aiden is very cuddly. Or, more likely, he just wanted to get his hands on what's in the bowl before everyone else.

This is all true. When Oliver was born he had a valve in his heart that didn't seal itself like it was supposed to, and he was flown to Edmonton for surgery. Erin, James and he stayed at the Ronald McDonald House in the city while he was recovering.

Dust Bunnies

Children are like puppies, once you let them in your room, they think they can go in whenever.
