2 Mamas

Jennifer and Maria are mamas that spend most of their days dancing away! Life is busy and for these 2 Mamas. Read our blog as we take you along on our adventures and rants as moms trying to do it all in a world that doesn’t have enough hours!

Dancing Queen

My aunt just sent me a link to a commercial for a Taiwanese bank entitled “Dream Rangers”. I’m a total sap and I cry at just about anything – romantic movies, school kids singing the national anthem, slide shows set to music (whether I know the people in the slides doesn’t seem to matter), and yes, television commercials – even ones about Taiwanese banks. I won’t spoil it for those who have yet to see it, but in a nutshell it’s...

No more excuses!

So ya I’ve hit my breaking point with this whole baby weight thing. Fyi it’s now no longer “baby weight.” Its officially just FAT! (great).  I’ve linked up with a name brand weight loss program and will be starting their full program soon. I will be blogging about my experiences. Their food, my likes and dislikes etc. I’ve always wanted to try it out so I figured heck ya! I’ll try it out for 4 months, let you all in on all the...

Are you courteous?

How many times have you been in a huge parking lot trying to find parking when all spots seem to be taken? All spots except for the ones that are five miles away AND the spots reserved for the disabled, expectant moms and parents with babies and small children. We all have lazy days when we want to park right next to the entrance to limit our outdoor walking – but if you’re perfectly healthy, not pregnant and without small children do you...

Recharging the Energizer Mummy

I don’t know about you, and while I wouldn't have had it any other way, I feel like my life post birth has changed much more radically than my husband's has.  And I'm not sure whether that's because I carried my son in my body for nine-and-a-bit months, or because I never returned to the office after my maternity leave expired...  Whatever the reason, there comes a time when the balance needs to be redressed. Any time a child's been under...

KidDictionary – Parents say the darndest things

Parents have THE hardest job, as they must wrangle, care for and teach the most difficult people in all of society–Their children. Diffusing bombs amidst enemy fire in a war zone?

To lighten their cumbersome load, let’s give them a good laugh and the ability to put into words the unique,...

Homemade Baby Cereals

Making baby cereal can be a bit tricky; some parents say that the recipes called for too much water whilst others say they had to add two extra cups of water. We find that the texture and "gloopiness" will depend a lot on the type of rice used as well as the texture of the powder you have created. If you find that the cereal is cooking up too sticky or too thick, you may add water while cooking the cereal. You may also further process the cooked...

Potty Training – Will Only Move Bowels in a Pull Up

A common parenting complaint is that the potty training is going fine—no accidents. But then I hear: “Rebecca has been dry for months now. However, there is one little problem. She refuses to poop in the toilet. She doesn’t have accidents, but she asks to have her pull-up on for bowel movements. These things are costing me. If she knows she has to go and can ask for a pull-up, surely she can just go use the toilet!” Understanding the...

Oh Baby!

The fabulous people at Kids CBC invited me to a tweet up last week. I spent the day with some fantastic mom bloggers, mompreneurs and all around inspiring women! One of the most impressive women in the bunch was Ali Eisner – the woman behind Mamma Yamma. She was funny, friendly and so patient. She happily allowed some of us to film personalized messages to our kids from the one and only Mamma Yamma! I have to say that...

Family Slumbering

Toddler Handbook: Tips for Toddlers, By Toddlers • In the middle of the night, run down the hallway without bothering to tiptoe. Your parents will hear the pitter-patter of your feet and be grateful that you are coming to join them in bed at such an hour. • Climb onto the bed, find a warm body, and lie directly on top of it, horizontally. • You will likely be moved. There is no need for you to cooperate in this matter. Just let...

Dancing makes me happy!

I'm sure like all moms out there we all wake up a few times in the night to deal with the, "I need you" and "I'm having a bad dream" right? Well, on Monday it was like every other morning but I was extra tired for some odd reason (not very odd I guess since both the kids were super sick) and I managed to make breakfast for the kids, my husband and, well, I ate all the leftovers because I didn't have time to make anything for myself! After...
