What your daughter "sees" in the mirror and reality can often be at counterpoint.
The five-year-old is looking more and more like mom.
The singer's son was born on Dec. 26.
This week marked the 8th annual Pink Shirt Day and I am proud to have been able to mark it in a really meaningful way. I spent the morning with the students, teachers and parents at Montcrest School i...

Pink is not just for little girls anymore. Although it still evokes cotton candy, summer days and everything that is pretty, these new grown up pinks are ultra feminine and wonderfully romantic. This is high impact statement that screams pretty.
We women face unnecessary scrutiny regarding our bodies. Those who weight-shame will often use the excuse that they are just concerned about our health; but rather, it stems from paternal, controlling judgement. We need to love the woman in the mirror, to embrace our individuality and celebrate our unique selves.
To be happy not only with the squishy parts of my body but also to simply have so much self-worth that happiness is not directly correlated to my efforts to control my weight is such a foreign concept, and yet, I can't help but feel envy for those who, like Pink, do not rely on their daily caloric intake for their sense of identity.

If being an active, professional listener of music has taught me anything, it's that there is no worse crime you can commit than to break up with someone who still has feelings for you. The musical la...
October is breast cancer awareness month. Yesterday, my 10-year-old son came up to me and asked: "Mommy, do you remember that commercial we saw about those pink things?" He made his hands in a cup formation and covered his chest like a bra.
Is there anyone else out there that has some feminism kicking around to feel objectified by overly sexualization of breast cancer? Are breasts selling cancer awareness just like they sell cars, beer, music, cigarette, shoes, and pretty much everything else. Just in case you think I am a prude, I ask you this: Are men asked to wear speedos to raise awareness for prostate cancer?
I captured a picture of these two beautiful creatures during a casual visit to the Calgary Zoo this summer. It caught my eye that they are almost forming a heart together.
In days of shopping I was unable to find attractive colourful unisex clothing for my son in main street/mainstream stores. So may I say three words to the fashion industry: Get over it. It is soul-crushing and mindless to force children to differentiate their sexed bodies in such limited and limiting ways.
