Three Reasons Why I Love Pocket Diapers
I have a confession to make. I have a lot of cloth diapers. A lot. More than one person could ever possibly need to diaper one child. Now some of you might think this is a bad thing, but I’m going to tell you why it’s a great thing. After cloth diapering The Heir from birth to potty training and now cloth diapering Petit Prince (with many of the same diapers, I might add), I’ve picked a favourite style of diaper. Don’t tell King Dad, but my favourite style is the first style I ever bought… That’s not to say that I don’t like or even love other styles of diapers, but hands down the pocket diaper is my favourite.

A Trip to the Dentist
Does anyone actually like going to the dentist? I mean, I don’t mind going to the dentist, but it certainly wouldn’t make my list of favourite things to do. The Heir, on the other hand, might actually like going to the dentist. Seriously. What’s not to like? They’ve got a play area filled with toys, the hygienists wear fun scrubs covered in cartoon characters, there are posters of all The Heir’s favourite superheroes on the walls, and they have a statue of a storm trooper in the exam room. Everything a preschooler needs to feel right at home. Besides, the dentist just takes a quick look and then we are on our way… Except this time that’s not at all how it went down. SURPRISE!! The Heir was in for his very first cleaning at the dentist. Oh boy.

Size Matters: When To Get Fitted for a Nursing Bra
When you’re planning on breastfeeding one of the greatest tools in your nursing arsenal will be your nursing bra. I can’t emphasize this enough: you want a GREAT nursing bra. How will you know what bra is going to work best for you after baby arrives? Get fitted! When should you do this?

How I Survived Hosting Thanksgiving
This past weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving and in all my infinite wisdom I thought it would be a brilliant idea to host the dinner. That’s right. A Thanksgiving dinner for 6 with all the trimmings at my house with my preschooler and my three month old. I don’t know what I was thinking either. Somehow, not only did I survive the event, but the dinner was awesome (if I do say so myself) and The Heir and Petit Prince were on their best behaviour. How did I pull this off? Let me tell you.
