Here Are My Five Favourite Things

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.

SavvyMom Roundup: Candida, Muffin Tops and Hashtags

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.

SavvyMom Roundup: Life of the Child-Free and Child-Full

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.

SavvyMom Roundup: The Royal Baby, the 7-Minute Workout and More

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.

SavvyMom Roundup: Toddlers, Kids at Camp, and Family GPS

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.

SavvyMom Roundup: Talking with Toddlers and More

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.
