Thank goodness there is more to talk about than Rob Ford and Miley this week -- I refuse to give either one of them air time (even though I just did, right there). I found a really cute Etsy video, a delicious quinoa snack (to buy, not make), some amazing gift-wrapping ideas for the holidays, a revealing video and suggestions on how to help people in the Philippines.
Statistics on moms, a reminder to get the flu shot, raising readers, a new place to shop and a very brief crack at the Mayor is what I've got this week. So much more caught my attention but this is al...
Funny Ellen videos, standing tall, too much screen time, online shopping deals and a Daddle -- that's what caught my attention this week.
This week I'll tell you five things I've had enough of lately, like school shootings, Miley Cyrus, Martha Stewart, hockey fights and bad skin.
The war against gluten, the problem with bacon, teens and social media, a sad kid at the zoo and apple season all caught my attention this week.

There are mom blog conferences to attend, frozen dairy-free treats to eat, muffin tops to buy, funny mom blogs to read and videos to share. I'll start with BlissDom, Canada's national blog conference that SavvyMom is participating in this weekend.
Parenting athletes, Louis C.K. on cell phones, mobile strategies, foodie travel and mass shootings all caught my attention this week.
Now that reality is the new fiction/entertainment, I find myself doubting what's true or false. Is everyone on Facebook really that perfect? Are we raising a generation of wimps? Can homegrown videos reach nine million people organically? Is bacon a food or an industry? And for the love of God, will the real James Franco please stand up.
Wimpy men, 1986, Oreo cookies and internet addiction centres all caught my attention this week now that the kids are back at school.
Saving our skin, celebrity life tips, teens and Facebook, Elvis Dogs and the Hyperloop -- that's what caught my attention this week.
Child-free women caught my attention this week turning my five favourite things into a hipster theme. Single mom, child-free or mother of four, may every woman be content in her decisions and the cards she is dealt. Have a great week.
I may be on vacation this week, but camping gear, Kate's "baby belly," Gwyneth's school choice, teaching kids how to succeed and nature's beauty all still caught my attention. 1. I'm not quite ready...
It's no surprise that the royal baby tops my list--I will admit to being as excited as anyone when that baby was safely born. But what I can't help but think about is the pressure for Kate to emerge from the hospital and show off baby George, which she and Prince William did so graciously.
The July long weekend is always busy at my house because it's when we get the kids ready for camp. This year they'll be away for six weeks without any parents, homework, city pollution, cell phones, TVs or computers. They are off the grid at camp. I love knowing this.
It's all about mommy wars this week. That's what caught my attention. 1. The mommy wars show no sign of dissipating despite the progress we have made as women and moms in society. Sometimes I think t...
Nobody's perfect, celebrity leaks, toddlers and guns, competitive parents and The Gift Network. That's what caught my attention this week.
A tech family challenge, First World problems are not so bad, social media and narcissism, Father's Day and finding happiness -- that's what caught my attention this week.
It was another busy week. We announced our top 75 Most Influential Canadian Mom Blogs, parents were fighting on the sidelines and everyone's talking about the 'Jolie gene.' See what else caught my att...
Our crack team at City Hall wasn't all that caught my attention this week. Funny parenting videos, more viral ads from Kmart, technology in sports and a great bike for families, all the way from Denmark, made the list. Sorry Rob, you've had too much air time already.
Remember the days when we were worried about our kids catching a glimpse of the Swimsuit Edition of Sports Illustrated? Apparently, if your kids are over the age of 6 and use the internet, it's likely they have seen much worse.
Angelina had a double mastectomy, moms are misbehavin' at Disney and we all need more naps. Baby mugging is big and Pilates is a lot tougher than you think. That's what caught my attention this week.
According to a recent survey, Canadians would pay their moms an average salary of $161,287 a year for all their hard work.

Some view Mother's Day as an entire day dedicated to mom, a day for her to do whatever she wants. Others view it as a day of gifting, a day when mom is showered with elaborate presents. We see it as both. All of this is within your reach if you read our guide on how to get what you want for Mother's Day.
I've been knee deep in the blogs lately so I'm paying a lot of attention to what's hot in that space. Diaperless parenting trends, mom blog conferences, innovative dads and a bathroom reno all caught my attention this week.

The Boston brothers, the Dirty Dozen, Kmart's cheeky ad campaign and some solid advice for parents and children -- all caught my attention this week.
There was a lot in politics that caught my attention this week. Not all of it was good. The unimaginable bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon leave so much to discuss and wonder. What I found amazing was the ability of the American people to stay positive in the wake of such an event.
