How to minimize clutter, organize, and optimize your shared children’s room.

F*@%!!!! – Stepped on any toys recently? From Mega blocks to Barbie dolls. Death Legos and Hardened Play-doh. Kitchen Accessories mixed with Race Cars. Puzzle Pieces sprinkled on top of Hatchimals. Maybe Monopoly pieces smushed into some Stuffed Teddies? Let’s bring “Mom where’s my Spiderman??? I can’t find him anywhere!! I need it now!!

Marriage is one thing but a baby? 

My boyfriend could sense it. My best friend had a feeling. Both suggested multiple times that I take a test just to be sure. Moodier than ever before, I shrugged it off as my period coming soon. Since the beginning of grade 9, Mother Nature reminded me each month  of my ‘gift’. Yes I realized […]
