Spinach, pear and quinoa puree

I hate talking about baby poop. No wait, I hate talking about baby poop to people that aren’t my son’s father or his pediatrician. Now don’t worry, this post isn’t about that. I just want to give you a little context! My little baby has been a backed up these last few days. A real pain […]

Remembering his final kick

October 15 is a special day for me and probably for so many other parents out there. For those who don’t know, today marks Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. According to the Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network, as many as 1 in 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage and each year in Canada there are […]

To the women I saw yesterday

Yesterday, on my way to the park with Marko, I noticed a woman sitting on the curb, cradling a child in her arms. The little girl must have been no older than two years of age. The woman, who I can only assume was her mother, was wearing a long black dress. I couldn’t tell […]

Don’t make me babyproof

How many of you out there go all out with your baby-proofing? Marko has discovered standing and, believe it or not, furniture walking in the past month. His eagerness to explore and enjoy his newfound mobility has him all over the house causing me a lot of unwanted stress lately. Our house isn’t exactly “baby-proofed”, more out of […]

Warm apple, dates and oat purée

What is Fall without a little trip to the local orchard for some wholesome family apple picking? Actually, truth be told, this was my first time ever going on such an excursion and it was FUN! Marko had a blast being carried around in the crisp air, touching the big red apples in his hands, […]

Why I decided to donate my milk

When I first gave birth to Marko, I was given the opportunity to attempt breastfeeding for the very first time with the help of a very kind nurse who was terribly patient and knew exactly how to instruct a very flustered and still shaky new mother. She helped guide his little mouth as he latched […]

OUF!: Feeling Over-tired, Useless and Fatigued

When my husband comes home from work today, the first thing I will probably say to him after passing him the baby is “Ouf!!”. This has been anything but a restful Friday. Marko woke up this morning in a cranky and very whiny mood. Put him down to play: he whines. Pick him up: whines […]

Golden autumn: apple, pear, carrot and raisins purée

We’ve been spending a lot of time outside lately. Marko has just discovered how fun the swing can be, so I try to take him to park everyday for a little fun in the sun. But yesterday, something felt a little different. The park was kid-less. Summer is officially over and all the neighbourhood kids […]

What it’s all about

Hello!! Welcome to my blog, a place where I will deposit my thoughts and daily/weekly musings through pictures and text as I try to capture and hopefully create a dialogue with others on motherhood, marriage, food and the home. Many of you may have been following my old blog, Life’s Love Affairs, but it no […]

Creamy turkey, potato and corn purée

I’ve been having a lot of fun lately cooking for my little guy. I get such a kick out of watching him experiment with different herbs and flavours as I try to carefully introduce him to the world of good eatin’! This week, I decided to put a twist to the classic Sheppard’s Pie using turkey, corn, potato, […]
