The Super Powers of Moms Everywhere

As parents, we actually have our own set of super powers that activate when we leave the hospital with our first bundle of joy. It might take a bit of practice to hone them, but eventually we look back on our own childhoods and think about all the stuff we probably DIDN’T really get away with.

From Lonely Stay-At-Home Mom to Following Dreams and Successful Business Owner

Just two years ago Arti Verma was a lonely stay-at-home mom of three. Now, she is the proud owner of a busy cafe in South Edmonton.“I wanted to come out and interact with the outside world but I felt I had no hope,” said Verma.“I was happy with kids and my family, but you know, sometimes you want something for yourself as well- for me I just wanted to get out.”...more

If The Maternity Pants Fit: When Pre-Pregnancy Pants Don't Quite Cut It Yet

If you could catch a glimpse through the walls of our home, you'd find a lot of things, but perfection isn't one of them. In my wildest dreams, I'd love to be that mom who is the sought-after pinnable image on Pinterest, but I'm sure you can tell from the title of my blog that I'm not one of those moms.

Girl Friends

It’s been a hell of a week, one thing after another and I’m feeling absolutely overwhelmed, alone, and abandoned. Poor me… I know!! Normally, I just keep most of this kind of stuff to myself, although sharing some of it with my mom. Given the circumstances, with that… (Check out “I Didn’t See That Coming”, if you don’t know what I’m talking about.) I've decided that I’d really like a girl friend, someone that I can call and share the good and the bad with, talk about girl-stuff (whatever that is these days). Someone who can call me and do the same....more

5 Ways for Busy Mamas to Stick to An Exercise Routine

 Exercise and I have a love/hate relationship.While I HATE the thought of it and hate actually getting started (believe it or not, the hardest element of working out for me is actually getting in my workout clothes!) once I get started I usually LOVE the way it feels and I have a great time.Time. That is my biggest enemy.It's not that I do NOT have the time in my day, but when I do have time, I've got a list of about a million things that need to be done. And with three small children, there is almost never a time that one of them does not need something....more
