I am raising some pretty unique kids over here. I have two ferocious and fierce monster loving little girls on my hands. So of course the new Monsters University themed Kinder Eggs have been a big hit around our house. Which is perfect timing because I have finally found a way to coerce my three year old into staying dry all day. If she can make her cloth trainer last all the … [Read more...]
Mom Surprise: Each Kid is Unique
I think one of the biggest shockers for me since becoming a mom is discovering just how unique my kids are. I had my first daughter and while aspects of her personality startled me, for the most past she was easy going and a delight to parent. So I signed on for kid number two. We had another daughter, and while she brings joy and light to my life she also drives me insane. … [Read more...]
Decorating Easter Eggs with Kinder Surprise? #KinderMom
Colouring and decorating boiled eggs is a yearly tradition at our place. It's always a ton of fun to gather around the table as a family and decorate eggs. Then on Easter morning the girls take turns hunting down the carefully hidden eggs, amongst giggles and ridiculous levels of excitement. They're still young enough to find the whole egg hunting game more exciting … [Read more...]
Girls Will Be… Pink?

With Christmas rapidly approaching I know they are going to be getting plenty of presents from their relatives. So we've been cleaning and sorting, filling boxes with toys and books they've outgrown so that we can donate them to the Salvation Army. My girls are … [Read more...]
Wait, When did I Switch From Kinder Lover to #KinderMOM?
I'm happy to say I've been invited back for a third go as a Kinder Mom Ambassador. As I've mentioned in the past, I've been a long time Kinder lover. I think I was 18 when I got my first Kinder egg and it was from the fellow that was to one day become my husband. Over the years he and I have gifted each other with Kinder eggs, as a small "just because" gift, or a treat slipped … [Read more...]
Kinder Does Madagascar #KinderMom
So, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted came out in theatres on June 8th. Have any of you guys seen it yet? What'd you think? I had sort of forgotten about Madagascar. Hubby and I watched it on DVD before G-Girl was born. It was cute and amusing, with the penguins being the highlight of the film. We watched it, enjoyed it, and then completely forgot about it. Movie number two … [Read more...]
