Mommy Time Out

Mommy Time Out

Hi! I'm Angela Hickman and I'm a Milton mom to a beautiful girl and handsome boy! Yep I have the "Million Dollar" family:) I love being a mom and my wish is to one day be a stay at home mom. It's tough being a full time employee, mom to highly energetic kids and wife to a wonderful husband. There isn't much time for a Mommy Time Out but I always try to find a little time. I love to shop and find new things that help make life easier and sometimes even more fun. My blog is all about the joys and frustrations of being a mom and hopefully helping other parents find products that will help make their life easier.

Ask a Naturopath

Ask a Naturopath

My name is Dr. Carly Wendler and I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor with a special interest and passion for perinatal health, that is all things fertility, pregnancy, birth, babies, and post-partum. I offer a range of naturopathic services to my community and patients including well pregnancy visits, well baby visits, and treatment for all conditions or concerns related to moms, babies, and families. I not only wear the hat of a naturopathic doctor but that of a mom to my toddler son Finnigan. Being pregnant and birthing my son (using hypnobirthing!) has further heightened my passion for mom and baby centred care and informed choice for all parents. I hope to bring information and confidence to every parent I meet so that they can make a truly well informed, safe choice for their child and family.

Crissie's Corner

Crissie

I am a 30-something Stay at Home Mother to my trouble making toddler Emma (AKA Dilemma) and a wife to my wonderful husband Bohdan. I am an artist, writer, and the queen of multi-tasking. Family is the most important thing for me and mine is truly the reason I wake up everyday. I was born and raised in Toronto into my boisterous Italian family and I continue to this day in the traditions I was taught, homemade wine, cured sausages, jarred tomatoes and so many others. I have embraced my husband and his Ukrainian roots as my own. (I must say I have learned to make a mean patychky and a delectable borsht.) I want to beat my infertility a second time, maybe even a third. I think life is precious, and aim to enjoy every single moment of it, even on my worst days of Dilemma supernova meltdown, tantrums, cold and projectile vomit I remember what a blessing it is to have her as my daughter.

I am a mother to a preemie princess born in March 2009 and a Mama’s boy born in December 2012. I am the one person that if you don't want a truthful answer...don't ask me the question. Yes, I will tell you...you look fat in that dress, no..those shoes don't go well with that belt...or don't bother buying that baby product because you'll never use it! Trust me, sometimes you just need a truthful answer, hear that someone else has gone through the same thing or just someone to talk and connect with for support. If that's what you're looking for, I'm here to dish about it!

Mom of 8 Crazy Monkeys

Mom of 8 Crazy Monkeys

The difference between this and a circus is that circuses run with a sense of order. Chantel Kowdrysh loves her children, all eight of her noisy, crazy, joyous, running about screaming, pushing, fighting, ADHD child, and developmentally issued children. It doesn’t matter if they are enjoying the hell of shopping together, the nightmarish adventure of traveling anywhere together, the insanity of school mornings or the quiet tenderness of a few moments between mother and child. She’s determined to make it work, or go even more insane trying. Chantel spends what quiet time she can get writing for the magazine Mississauga Kids, and various parenting web sites. If she cannot be found at her laptop sipping a Wildberry, then she can be found behind the wheel of her 15 seater van, with a Timmies triple, triple. A former Canadian National Gymnast, she traded in her six pack abs for an 8 pack of kids and now she is looking for the keg. Check out her blog at momof8crazymonkeys.com

Mummy Madness

Mummy Madness

I got married and had two children all in 3 years. My son, also my first child, was born with a health condition that required surgery and we spent our first 6 weeks of parenthood in a NICU at a children’s hospital. It was the most difficult time of my life. Even after he came home I struggled with anxiety, depression, fear and anger. I turned to writing and my words slowly allowed me to crawl out of the hole I had dug myself into. I was forever changed. I began to realize that I had the ability to help others who were struggling with their journey in parenthood. As parents, we all have moments where we aren't sure what we are doing. I continue to write and share my experiences in hopes that I can help part the clouds for someone who is struggling.
