Invasive pop up ads on parenting sites – when you’re trying to look up something, ANYTHING, that would help a nauseated child. Fucking *genius*, I tell you. Marketing magic. 

Anyways, here is our Mother’s Day BBQ. My mum didn’t have a very restful day but she was very gracious about it all. The sick child will probably stay home tomorrow, so I’ll wash all her floors and hopefully make up for it a wee bit. Poor Nan. 


Our very old kitchen table came out of the garage to pull duty. The kids don’t even remember it, ha. 


The kids were unsure about our guests, but eventually were happy to natter. Wolfie proclaimed them “Good New Men! I wike you New Men!” They were pretty stoked about eating outside, too. 


Wolf is turning out to really love cars and trucks, and figurines. Like, wee plastic people and dragon toys and such? He will sit for an hour at a time narrating stories with them. He makes it sound like a child’s book “Hello, how are you today, Dwagon?” “I am just fine, said the dwagon, Let’s go get some lunch”. His sis never really got into that kind of By Herself play. She is much more adventurous than he is, though – you can see her climbing and swinging and testing her strength on all the park pieces back there. She’s growing like a weed and punching holes through all her pants 🙂 They were both exceedingly well behaved today, and I’ve really been enjoying my time with them. They’ve changed so much in the last few months. It will be nice to finally have the four of us all together again… Stephen is missing a lot.

I find myself wearing the same grim lipped rictus grin my mother so frequently wore when I was growing up. 

It’s funny, coz you can’t always say “I should never have done X” because if you hadn’t done it you wouldn’t know that you SHOULDN”T have, and in some cases you’d actually regret that you hadn’t because you wouldn’t know better. 

So regret is fucking bullshit. 

So is Mother’s Day! 

I’ve been up sine 4, the washing machine doesn’t work, I just got my period, the breakfast I made didn’t keep because I made it too early – in an effort to have everything cleaned up before anyone would wake up to see the mess or the space I was taking up while cooking – and… oh yeah! I look like my mother did at my age, only not as thin. 

I’m going to put on the t.v. for the kids, read my book, and then take them out into the garden to pick up dog shit and rinse out the litter box  listen to the birds and try to stop feeling so disgustingly sorry for myself.

Zombie Blog

So hey yeah, it is EASTER! And it hasn’t snowed for a few days! Like, two days. So that’s great right?

My friend reminded me of this blog just now, and that reminded me of those vague thoughts of resurrecting it and using it to keep in contact and write about things and keep a journal of our family’s doings. I’ll have to find out how to keep the site prominent so that I remember.

Anyways, here are the children on Easter morning. Éowyn Catherine is now 5 and a half, and Wolf Corbin is 2 and a half. They are funny and smart and they usually smell pretty good! Éowyn was a complete love this morning, she waited in the room – I was the only one she woke up both the boys were conked* – and then I got her dressed up, she woke her brother and put his tie and shirt on for him. She was sure to guide him and give him treats when he couldn’t find as much as she did. I’m very very proud of her and he thinks she hangs the moon. He loves her so much ❤
*We are all staying with my parents for the moment. About 5 months or so. Stephen has been living in Calgary, and visiting about once a month when he can. We're sharing a big cozy room, which smells like a damn bear den when all four of us are packed in 🙂 We're very snug and it's kind of nice to be so close to the babies while they are so small and soft and squishy. We're due to move to Calgary in July, until then we are here to finish out the school year and give the kids extra time with Nana and Baba.

Soooo… Happy Easter 🙂 It's one of my favourite holidays, and I just love that both the kids were old enough to get excited about it this year!

K you don’t understand. What this means to me. My son is OBSESSED with stars. to the point where it sounds like he’s having a verbal seizure when he sees one? or hears about one? or thinks abut one? or thinks YOU”RE thinking about one? We had to take the stars out of his room because HE WOULDN”T SLEEP WHEN HE KNEW THEY WERE THERE. And we have to sing twinkle star to him? ALL THE TIME!!?? ALL. THE. TIME.

so i love this. I love this so much. and i’m going to send it to stephen and he will actually laugh (he only does that once every six months) he’ll laugh and he’ll laugh until he sobs. i swear.

Nana has been alone at home quite a bit, now that my father has a job. We’re all super happy for him! He gets to be out at camp, but doesn’t have to deal with strenuous body killing work. He drives – and that’s like, one of his favourite things. Perfect job 🙂

The result is that Cat is finally alone and quiet with her own self – after nearly 30 years. She’s been visiting lots which is a *total* delight to us. Especially me. The kids love her, she leaves them so happy, and we get to have good honest bitch sessions. I feed her (which makes me very very happy) and make her tea, I got to get out for a walk by myself today while Nana watched a movie with Éowyn, and Wolf got to talk with her befor ehis nap – and when he woke up I plunked him down between his two favourite girls and got them all snacks.

Super lovely day. All you need is love. And. You know. A house, and food, and money, and beer, and popcorn, and toys, and clothes – but. Mostly love. That’s my best one. It’s been a very very different first year with Wolf, than with Éowyn. We’re in a better place, and we have more money (coz right, love isn’t all you need) but just HAVING them here and seeing them with the kids and knowing they’re happy – that’s the core. That’s the molten mfing core, yo.
