I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who cannot possibly even see it as a family trip if 25% of the family is getting the shaft. The way I see it though, is that 2 months ago when I booked the trip I thought that 75% of the family would get the shaft if he came so basically it was just a numbers game. Having a spirited high needs toddler means that the attention that everyone else in the house is looking for ends up taking a back seat...the squeaky wheel gets the gre
Recently, my hubby and I decided to do something super fun (and a bit crazy). We love to travel, with and without kids, and so we decided to take the month of November, rent a house in Southern California, and hang out with our two boys, almost 2 and almost 4. The plan? No plan, really. Just go and focus inward, on the four of us. We have a super busy life at home and the opportunity arose, so we took it. Let me tell you though, there's one thing we know better than anything,
So it’s Sunday afternoon, one son is with his grandpa and the other is asleep. This means I have sometime to reflect on Bad Moms Canada: what it is, what it was, and what it can become. When the blog was first born, the Bad Moms team had no idea of the reach it would have. Pre-blog, I remember nervously sending out an invite to my mom pals saying “hey, you wanna be part of a blog?” knowing full well that I did NOT have the time to run it on my own, and needed a big commitment
Yesterday I packed up kid 1 and kid 2 and headed to my parents for a working 2-night vacation while they visited with the grandfolk.

That’s the inside of my car. Remnants of the trip: used tissue, cap of a bottle, DVD case, makeup and cof
Ahhhhhhh, holidays!! Cold frosty drink with some umbrella thingy on top, wide brim hat, warm sun, hot sand, cool water, great podcast to binge listen to…these are the images I conjure when fantasizing about going on holiday. Anyone with children knows this fantasy is a fool’s errand yet I fall victim to it all the same. I planned this trip months in advance with the naïveté of a 5 year old. My son will be this age by then, he’ll be that much older, able to do this and that.
They say that one is like none and two is like ten. “They” are correct. I don’t know how it is having three or four children (you’ll have to talk to my Bad Mom sister Michelle), but I do know that having your first baby: hard but rewarding. Having your second baby: harder and rewarding-er. One key aspect of having children, however, remains the same no matter how many offspring you’ve sprung from your lady-parts. Whether you are a good mom or a bad mom, please for the love of
