1 Second Per Day

I love videos like this! I wish I had have done things like this with my boys because it feels like I just blinked and then they grew up!

Heartbreaking

Anyone who lives in the GTA knows just how difficult this week was for a family who is going through the unthinkable.
A three-year-old boy named Elijah Marsh died after he wandered outside in the extreme cold and was found without a pulse, near Bathurst Street and Highway 401, on Thursday morning.  I watched the news live from work with a very, VERY heavy heart and I just couldn’t shake away the pain that I felt for his family.  What got to me the most was what that sweet little boy must have gone through outside in the cold like that.  I haven’t been able to bring myself to post about this until today because this story really hit home for me because my boys are around the same age and I know how crafty and determined they are when they put their minds to it.  I have attached some of the news pieces if you would like to take a look.  Please let this be a reminder to always double check all of your locks and child safety locks and just go and give your babies (no matter how old they are) a big hug and kiss.

These Faces Make My Day

This seems to be something I can only manage to do every few months or so and for that I will stop apologizing because anyone who has children (especially two boys) under the age of 5 will completely understand why I hardly have a chance to blog.  Working while being a mom is much more difficult than I could have imagined.  I miss them every day and I hate that it feels like I am missing so much of them growing up into the adorably, frustrating, intelligent, bossy, moody, hilarious, sweet little boys that they are.  I know that there are going to be many, many years of watching them grow into fine young men so I do not regret my choice to be a working mom, however my sleep deprived self may disagree slightly.  I miss those days when I actually had time to take a long shower and spend time getting ready for the day making sure my outfit was nice and my makeup was perfect and now I’m lucky if I can put mascara on while running out the door.  I just wanted to pop into the blog world and say ‘hello’ again because it really is few and far between when I will actually get a chance to catch up with everyone else and give a little update on my family.
