Family Lifestyle | Kandoo – Boogie Mist

Now that the school year is in full swing, we’ve definitely had our first round of colds. It wasn’t too bad, but it’s getting colder (ugh, geez Canada!), and with the cold comes even more illnesses. According to WebMD, “Kids who are preschool age have around nine colds a year, while kindergartners can have 12 a year.” TWELVE a year? Yikes! So, what can we as parents do to help?

Family Lifestyle | Airbnb #BelongAnywhere

The last little bit I’ve been fortunate enough to travel around a BUNCH! Whether it was a weekend away in Montreal, a week away in Toronto or an amazing road trip across eastern Canada, it feels like I’ve been on the go for a while. But I am so happy when travelling, I feel as though it is my calling! My friends all feel the same, that’s why we get on so well. Collectively, I reckon we have been all over the world. In fact, my friend recently did an all round trip in the UK, it took her months. But when she came home she couldn’t stop talking about the Southwest coast of England. She said the views were something out of a dream. So she actually ended up looking at some of Lovat’s holiday homes for sale in Cornwall and similar so she could have her own retreat to go to whenever she wanted to. We were all so happy for her, me, perhaps a little jealous. But I’ve never loved anywhere so much that I want to call it home, or, a second home in her case. But that’s just me! In fact, when I’m travelling, I’m always conscious of looking for a place to stay where Lyric can have a little space, ie. Mama needs her own bed, but it’s not always that simple. This is my main focus you see. However, it’s not always been that simple for me to find somewhere. That is, until I was introduced to Airbnb!

Family Lifestyle | Kandoo – ‘Tis the Season

Yep, ’tis the season! Nope, not Christmas, and not even back to school… COLD SEASON! With lil ones heading back to school, or maybe even to school for the first time, you need to be ready for germs. Most classes have at least 20 kids in them, and then there’s recess with at least two or three times that many. Toys, markers and glue are being passed around from hands to hands, and it’s almost inescapable.

Family Lifestyle | Back To School Essentials! #DTDBTS

It’s that time of year, BACK TO SCHOOL! I remember last year feeling such hesitation, and anxiety. I also remember bawling like a baby as soon as he walked in those doors and could no longer see me. This year already feels so different. I know what a school day looks like, and that he’ll be ok. He has friends he’s excited to see, and I have some silence I’m excited for! (haha!.. “I just LOVE talking!” says Lyric, every day.) I’ve always loved back to school shopping, the new pencils, and binders, and stainless steel lunch containers and backpacks and shoes and.. now I sound like a dork. There’s just something so refreshing about starting a new year.
