DIY Unicorn Smash Cake Banner

Messy Mama

img_7581


One year old birthday parties are another one of those parties people tend to go all out for. It’s insane how much effort goes into celebrating someone who wont remember anything about that special day. As parents, we know it, yet we still do it. I think we are just celebrating surviving a full year.

We send out invitations, spend a ridiculous amount on decorations and balloons, and we invite people our poor baby may not even know. Some of us even go the extra length to get professional photos done of our little monsters annihilating a cake.

Instagram is full of them. The extremely popular “smash” cake. It’s adorable, it’s extremely messy, and the intense sugar rush is so worth the memories. Even if we did spend a fortune on the photos. Who cares!

For the parents who fall in the middle of it’s not worth it, and let’s…

Man’s worst enemy

Mischievous Words by Marta

A few weeks ago I have wrote a post about how many enemies we carry inside of us. This is some sort of continuance post on that topic.

In moments of dissatisfaction with our own life and destiny, we often seek to blame someone or something for our current state of affairs.

Often, this blame falls on those around us, whether it’s
family, friends, neighbors, work colleagues, bosses… Sometimes our country,
politicians, journalists are guilty for our dissatisfaction… And sometimes
our annoyance is caused by the weather or the seasons…

Do you understand in which direction am I going?

We blame everybody for everything. For it is easier to throw
guilt on others than to take fate in their own hands. For how, we the perfect
specimens of the human race, were responsible for our own failure?! How can we
admit that we are not right, and that our…

Anxious Toddlers & Low-Key is Birthdays

My daughter will be turning 2 on the 25th. I’m mystified that my baby is growing so quickly. She woke up last week and just started opening doors and saying full blown sentences. With her big day approaching, we had to make a decision on a whether or not to have a party.

We had a party for her 1st birthday. We set up Peppa Pig balloons and decorations at a local community center, and a good amount of people and kids showed up to celebrate our little girl. I quickly noticed how uncomfortable she was. She would only let 2 or 3 people interact with her, and she didn’t smile much. She just seemed very nervous.

I knew she wasn’t a big fan of people, but it wasn’t until the party that I considered that she could have anxiety. My son has shown a fair amount of signs anxiety…

Traveling with Toddlers: Miami Beach

Sharing for all the beautiful photos 🙂

Miami, Miami, Miami. What a trip, what a place, what a good time. Honestly, I think coming back to Canada’s below freezing weather is going to do me in, but at least I get to come back with a tan (sunburn)!

Now, this vacation was, in fact, not much of a vacation at all. Why do I say this? Well,it’ssimple really – vacation used to mean lounging on the beach, under an umbrella, reading a book for about 8 hours of the work day while my husband ran around playing volleyball (because godforbid,he sits still for 5 minutes and boredomensues). Vacation now involves jam packing everysingle day with fun-filled activities so that my toddler is entertained (because godforbid,he sits still for 5 minutes and boredomensues). Needless to say, I’m not at work… butit’sall stillwork. However, major upside to a family vacation? I get to see and do SO MUCH more…
